Our Foundation Solutions
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
Excessive hydrostatic pressure in the earth can cause this common issue. 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. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. 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. 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.
This is another common structural problem seen on homes all over the region. 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. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.

Causes of Mold Growth
