We understand the frustration that comes with needing a foundation repair, which is why we are committed to making this process as stress-free as possible for you. We will help you understand exactly what is wrong with your foundation and we will walk you through the practical solutions we use to fix it.
If you notice that your doors and windows are hard to open, your home’s at risk for an un-level foundation. To stabilize and lift the sinking foundation we will use heavy duty steel push piers.
Helical piers are great for construction projects with a deep foundation. Helical piers are easily installed and are less expensive than traditional concrete piers.
We drill concrete piers into the bedrock to re-stabilize your home’s foundation if your foundation is a victim to soil erosion. This tends to happen to structures built on the sides of hills because the soil tends to migrate downhill over time.
Sunken concrete walkways can become un-level due to drainage problems, expansive soil, or invasive tree roots, which is a safety and a liability issue. We re-level these sidewalks, pool decks and driveways by using a minimally-invasive process that involves injecting a special polyurethane foam under the slab to lift it back up again. This process is less expensive than entirely replacing the concrete, and you can begin using the newly-lifted slab immediately after the repair is done.
Even if your home’s foundation is completely sound, you can notice signs of foundation trouble. Usually this is caused by deteriorating screw jacks, or the settling of support posts in the crawl space. In this case we use the existing pier locks to remove/replace the posts or screw jacks, which allows the floor to be lifted again.
While most foundation problems can be repaired using these methods, there are cases where it is simply most cost effective to replace the entire foundation. We have over 15 years of experience of full and partial foundation replacement.
