Foundation Wall Cracks
This happens after foundation occurs or in some instances if you have a waterproofing problem. In more extreme cases your home will have vertical cracks that are literally separating the foundation apart into two pieces. In minor but still serious cases you will notice horizontal cracks where the shifts of soil and foundation have begun, and other major symptoms will follow if left unchecked.
Bowed Basement Walls
The most dangerous condition is having an excess amount of pressure outside of the basement wall. This comes from soil and water build-up that eventually bows the wall inwards. This is more common with mason built basement walls, however early signs of this symptom can be simple to extreme cracks with standard poured foundations. Our technicians will be able to figure out which problem you have and address it accordingly.
Foundation settlement is essentially shifting or sinking concrete, where either side of the home is degrading into the soil and causing stress on the foundation slab. If one area settles into the ground you will notice splits and cracks in the concrete. Other instances can be caused by lack of water drainage where the clay rich soil will expand and contract, while weak soil without proper ‘filling’ when the slab was poured will become weaker and ultimately sink the foundation altogether.
SafeBase™ Push Piers
We utilize a solid piering system to lift your foundation back into place and relevel the slab. This will fix sinking foundation problems as well as the aftermath of concrete cracks.
Liquid Urethane Injection
With any foundation repair we finish off the project by injecting liquid urethane to permanently seal these openings from potential water leaks that will cause additional problems.
SafeBase™ Wall Anchors
We use wall plates and steel rods that are installed outside and inside of the basement wall to pull the bowed concrete back in place. This is a permanent solution that will withstand any amount of pressure.
Rhino Carbon Fiber®
Ultra strong carbon fiber strips, tied into the foundation of the home, can control bowing walls from inside the home.
