The foundation is where every construction begins, and when it comes to the repair of a foundation, we are the best in the business. If you have noticed cracks in the floors or walls of your home (or office building) then this could be an indication that you have problems with the foundation. When a foundation is settling it can create major issues to your home’s structural integrity. Lucky for you, we offer a variety of repair systems that will rectify any type of foundational issue. It is vital that you make repairs to foundational problems as soon as they are noticed, as this will help to prevent any further damage from occurring.
Buckling, Bowed Walls and Wall Anchors
If you have noticed that your basement walls are bulging horizontally, this means they can’t handle the external pressure that is being placed on them. This can result in a total collapse of the foundation. One solution to this issue is a wall anchor. These are placed directly into the earth next to the foundation and attached using steel poles. The steel poles are drilled through the foundation to marry with an internal connecting plate. This will prevent further movement of the wall, and the bolts will be tightened over time to straighten and correct the foundation. Essentially, it’s what braces do your teeth, or pins do to broken bones.
I-Beams are another solution for buckling and bowed walls or basement walls that are leaning or tipping. These steel beams brace the interior of the basement to provide walls with reinforcement. They are bracketed to floorboards as well as the base of the walls. Eventually, your wall may revert to its original position.
Problems with Foundation Settling and the Solution
Once the earth begins to settle beneath the foundation, the foundation may also settle. This tends to occur when the soil wasn’t properly compacted before the pouring of the foundation. This causes your foundation to sink, thus damaging your home.
Foundation piers will be installed right down to the bedrock or virgin soil, then attached to the foundation’s footer to stabilize your home permanently.
