This problem is caused from excess hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. The soil around your foundation swells up whenever it rains, or when there is melting snow on your lawn. All of this moisture will put a lot of force on your foundation 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. Our team of experts will be able to determine the cause of the crack and get it dealt with so it doesn't cause more problems. Also, the crack will need to be filled and sealed so that it doesn't let moisture inside the home.
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.

To fix the problem, we can install foundation piers next to the damaged wall(s). Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. Eventually, the piers will be able to support the weight of your home and keep it from sinking any further into the earth.
