The sooner you identify these problems and contact us, the less expensive the repairs will be.
There are several major foundation repair approaches depending on the kind of foundation you have. Listed below are several types of foundations, problems, and repair methods:
Poured Foundation Repair
Small vertical cracks are usually the first sign of a foundation repair problem. This problem occurred due to shrinking when the foundation was originally poured. Relatively inexpensive to fix if caught early.
Due to contraction and expansion of the ground, these cracks may only get worse over time. Call us as soon as you discover these issues for a less costly repair.
Block Foundation Repair
If you are experiencing visible vertical cracks this may be caused by settling problems. Unstable soil conditions surrounding your basement is the culprit here. You may also see cracks around doors and windows caused by the same issue.

Bowing Walls Repair
There are new methods available to repair bowing walls that don’t involve heavy equipment, messy concrete or any invasive measure. It uses a product called StablWall which is a system of carbon fiber sheets that strengthens basement walls and concrete structures. The StablWall System uses specially engineered epoxies that bond the carbon fibers to a concrete surface. When used, the walls become stronger than before, eliminating the threat of additional cracking or bowing. This solution is more permanent and economical than previous methods like steel beams.
