Foundation Wall Replacement

Foundation Wall Replacement

Often a foundation wall is damaged beyond repair and must be replaced in its entire section. When this occurs that section of the home is shored and the wall is removed and replaced with a stiffer wall engineered to suit.

Bowed Walls

Bowed Walls

If your basement walls are starting to bow in or develop cracks we can provide an instant but permanent solution. By installing earth anchors, we can stabilize and in most cases bring the foundation wall back into vertical alignment. This process takes 1 or 2 days to correct.

House SettlementHouse Settlement

House Settlement

Typically, a house will initially settle from 3/4" to 1" without damage to the structure. Settlement beyond this limit will cause cracking to brick veneer/ drywall, make doors and windows difficult to open, create unevenness in the floor(s). Using a piering system, we can stabilize your home and in most cases lift the home back to its original elevation. Typically a repair takes 2 or 3 days.
