Excessive hydrostatic pressure in the earth can cause this common issue. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Ultimately, it will cause them to bend or bow into the basement environment. To fix the problem, we can install wall anchors, wall braces, and wall supports to provide the extra strength needed to keep the walls in place and stable.
Sometimes, a cracked foundation could be an indication that something more serious is going on with the structure, including settlement. We will need to figure out the cause of the problem and address it at the source. This crack will also need to be sealed so that moisture can't seep inside.
Typically speaking, a floor crack doesn't indicate that there is a bigger foundation issue at hand. However, it will still need to be filled in to prevent seepage up and through the floor due to a rising and falling water table around your foundation.
This problem is also caused from the soil around your home, and it's typically from poorly backfilled earth from the time when your home was being built. To take care of the issue, we will install foundation piers. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.
