Why Do Foundations Fail & Crack?
The foundation that was poured before your home was made sits on soil- and if that soil is unstable it creates problems. Below are some of the main causes of foundation failure and how these problems develop.
- 1. During the wet seasons, clay-rich types of soil have a tendency to expand as it soaks water and then contracts in hot temperatures.
- 2. If you have soft soil the amount of weight will eventually destroy the foundation as it cannot hold without a solid base.
- 3. If you don't have a waterproofing system around your foundation, it can create problems by softening the soil over time.
As these situations can often be confusing to understand, our job is to find out what condition is effecting your foundation and provide the necessary repair.

How We Repair Your Foundation Problems
Repairing Sinking Concrete
With sinking or settling concrete we must move away from being dependant on the soil underneath. Our foundation piers accomplish this by raising the concrete, and stabilizing the weight off deeper load-bearing crust.
Wall Crack Repair
Cracks are repaired by usage of our other products- addressing the the initial causes of the split. Epoxy injections we use to seal the crack. This substance is designed to act as a binding between the split of the crack and keep water out.
Repairing Bowed Walls
There is only one solution for this problem as it's classified as an emergency repair. Bowed walls require wall anchors to pull and restabilize the concrete back into place.
