Our Foundation Solutions
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
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. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Ultimately, it will cause them to bend or bow into the basement environment. To take care of this issue, our team will be able to install special wall anchors, braces, and support systems to strengthen the wall and keep it properly supported.
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.
These cracks typically do not pose a problem for the structural integrity of a home, but they still need to be filled in and sealed to prevent moisture from seeping in through the ground and causing damage.
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.
