Our contractor services
Is your foundation or crawl space cracking, chipping, bowing or sinking, settling, or heaving? If so, it is necessary to consult a professional foundation repair contractor who specializes in fixing poured concrete, concrete blocks, bricks, masonry, and stone structures.
Most foundation problems are obvious to the naked, untrained eye. Others, however, may not be so obvious. In those cases, subtle signs and symptoms might alert you to small issues that have the potential to grow into major troubles that are costly.
We provide many services that stabilize problematic foundation and basement walls, and floors. We restore and rebuild foundations that have failed, as well as offer minor repairs to cracks, chips, and minimal bowing and settling.
We work with both home owners and commercial businesses. See more about our services below.
SCHEDULE A FREE ESTIMATE
We carefully inspect the interior and exterior of your foundation to determine what is causing it to fail and what repairs are absolutely necessary. We then provide a detailed repair plan complete with a free estimate and time table. We depend on wide range of repair methods that remedy specific problems and offer quality long-term solutions that fit your budget. We can assist you with the following:
Cracks in concrete, brick and stone foundations can be caused by a handful of conditions that signal more significant structural problems. Those conditions include, but are not limited to: bowing walls, settling and sinking foundations, and immense pressure from soil immediately surrounding the basement.
Cracks form vertically and horizontally when issues arise. Small, hairline cracks may not be serious or require repair. Bigger cracks, however, may result in a wet basement, or much worse … costly structural damage.
Most cracking walls can be repaired without tearing down and rebuilding the entire wall foundation. Fixing cracks promptly will decrease the likelihood of further damage and save you time, money, and frustration in the long run.
We deliver a vast range of crack fixes that solve the specific type of cracking your foundation is showing.
A bowing or leaning foundation wall is a structural issue that must be taken very seriously. If the tipping structure is not repaired in a reasonable time period, it can lead to substantial failure and devastating results for your home.
Bowing concrete and brick walls are generally caused by soil pressure around the foundation and protruding roots from nearby trees.
In most cases, bowing walls can be stabilized with the installation of braces. When significant bowing is evident, the wall may have to be rebuilt entirely. Bracing permanently stabilizes a foundation wall and solidifies it from shifts, heaves and moving pressure from freezing and unfreezing of soil.
Sinking, settling, and uneven floors
Uneven or sagging floorboards are typically an clear of a foundation that is failing and requires repair work.
Uneven flooring is generally caused by a foundation is sinking in its soil. When a structure is settling in poor, compacted soil, the structure can be stabilized by large steel shafts that extend to more stable dirt much further below the ground surface.
Sagging floors could also be the result of weakened floor joists and girders, and/or improper spacing of support columns.
No mater the cause, a sinking foundation and uneven floor should not be taken very seriously. An uneven floor is not great to look at it or walk, and it also could lead to catastrophic outcomes.
We closely evaluate the root of the problem and offer trusted solutions that restore basements and crawl spaces for good.
A foundation is the most important piece of any structure. If it falters, it could set you back thousands of dollars. If you think a problem exists, it is important to take the first step and schedule an assessment with a professional contractor near you.
Careful inspections help us make sound judgments on what is causing issues, while also giving us the knowledge to determine solutions for long-term repair.
Having your foundation inspected by a professional may help prevent future problems. Implementing warrantied repairs right away is usually less expensive than if you wait and allow time for bigger problems to evolve.
