Our Foundation Systems
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. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. 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.
A crack in your foundation could be a warning sign of a larger structural problem, such as 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). The piers will be installed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.
