What Is a Foundation?

A foundation is the base that a building stands on and provides support for the entire structure. Over time, the foundation may experience damage due to various factors such as soil erosion, damage caused by expansive soil, or poor construction. These issues can compromise the structural integrity of the building, leading to further damage and safety concerns.

What Is Foundation Repair?

Foundation repair refers to the process of fixing structural problems with a building’s foundation. To repair a foundation, we first perform an inspection of the building to identify the specific issues affecting the foundation. Once the issues have been identified, we develop a plan to address them. This repair plan may involve a combination of techniques, such as:

  1. Foundation underpinning – This involves reinforcing the foundation by installing steel piers that are driven deep into the ground to provide additional support.
  2. Soil stabilization – This technique involves injecting a material into the soil around the foundation to provide additional stability.
  3. Foundation wall repair – If the walls of the foundation are cracked or bowing, they may need to be reinforced with materials such as carbon fiber.
  4. Drainage improvements – If water is contributing to the foundation damage, improvements to the drainage system may be necessary to redirect water away from the foundation.


The specific techniques used will depend on the extent and nature of the foundation damage. It’s important to note that foundation repair can be a complex and costly process, but it’s essential for ensuring the safety and stability of your home. 

If you suspect that your home may have foundation issues, it’s important to have it inspected by a qualified professional as soon as possible to prevent further damage and potentially dangerous situations.

What Are the Benefits of Foundation Repair?

Foundation repair is an essential aspect of the maintenance and upkeep of any property. The benefits of foundation repair are numerous and range from improving the structural integrity of your home to enhancing its overall value and curb appeal. Here are some of the key benefits of foundation repair:

  1. Prevent Further Damage: One of the most significant benefits of foundation repair is that it can prevent further damage to your property. If you notice cracks or other signs of foundation damage, it is crucial to take swift action to prevent the problem from getting worse. Fixing the problem early can save you money in the long run by preventing the need for more extensive and costly repairs later on.
  2. Enhance Structural Integrity: The foundation is the backbone of your property, and any damage to it can compromise the structural integrity of your building. Foundation repair can help restore the foundation to its original strength and stability, ensuring that your property is safe and secure.

Our Foundation Repair Solutions

Our suite of repair services employs state-of-the-art techniques and materials to address a variety of foundation issues:

Pier Installation

Foundation piers are installed to provide support to a structure’s foundation and prevent it from further sinking or settling. Foundation settlement is a common problem in areas with weak soil or frequent seismic activity. To install foundation piers, you first need to assess the soil and determine its load bearing capacity. The results will determine the type and number of piers needed.

There are two main types of foundation piers: push piers and helical piers. Push piers are installed by driving a steel pipe into the ground until it reaches a firm soil layer. This process is repeated until all of the piers are in place. At that point, a synchronized hydraulic lifting system will raise the foundation as much as possible.

Helical piers, on the other hand, are installed by screwing a helical pier into the soil. The helical pier is designed with corkscrew-like blades that allow it to turn into the ground. Once the piers are in place, the structure is gradually lifted.  

The main difference between push and helical piers is the way they are installed and the type of soil they are best suited for. Push piers are better suited for heavy structures and dense soil, while helical piers are better suited for lighter structures and softer soil. Helical piers also have the advantage of being able to be installed in tighter spaces and with less noise and disruption than push piers.

Crawl Space Support

Crawl space support jacks are devices used to reinforce and stabilize a sagging or sloping crawl space. If you have a crawl space foundation, the crawl space is the area below your home’s floor that provides access to plumbing, electrical, and other utilities. Due to settling, moisture, and other factors, the crawl space can start to sag or slope, causing structural damage to your home. Crawl space support jacks provide a solution to this problem by lifting the sagging floor and transferring the weight of the home onto a stable foundation.

Crawl space support jacks work by using a hydraulic system or screw mechanism to lift the sagging floor. The jacks are inserted into the crawl space and placed under the floor joists or beams. Once in place, the jacks are adjusted to the appropriate height to raise the sagging floor. The jacks are then locked in place to provide permanent support to the floor.

Crawl space support jacks come in different sizes and shapes to accommodate various crawl space sizes and weight requirements. They are made of durable materials such as steel and can withstand the weight of a home for years without sagging or shifting.

Crawl space support jacks provide a cost-effective and long-term solution to crawl space problems. They not only stabilize the foundation but also prevent further damage to your home. 

Carbon Fiber Straps

Carbon fiber straps are a common solution for repairing foundation walls that are showing signs of stress or damage. These straps are made from ultra-strong carbon fiber material that is able to provide the necessary structural support to reinforce the foundation wall and prevent further damage.

The installation of carbon fiber straps involves a number of steps. Firstly, the foundation wall needs to be evaluated to determine the extent of the damage and the best location for installing the straps. Once this has been done, the wall is prepared by cleaning and sanding the surface to ensure that the carbon fiber can properly adhere.

Next, the carbon fiber straps are cut to the appropriate size and shape and then applied to the prepared surface using a high-strength epoxy adhesive. The straps are then secured in place using specialized anchors or bolts that are drilled into the foundation wall.

Once the installation is complete, the carbon fiber straps provide a durable and long-lasting solution for repairing a failing foundation wall. They are able to resist the forces of nature and prevent further damage from occurring, making them a popular choice for homeowners and building contractors alike.

Wall Anchors and Helical Tiebacks

Wall anchors and helical tiebacks are two common methods used to support and repair failing foundation walls. These methods are commonly used when the foundation wall has cracked or bowed due to underlying soil pressure or other external factors.

Wall anchors are metal plates that are secured to the interior surface of the foundation wall and connected to an anchor rod that extends through the soil outside the home. The wall anchors counteract the external forces that caused the wall to bow or crack. The wall anchors apply a force to the foundation wall that helps to stabilize it and prevent further damage.

Helical tiebacks are long steel rods with helical plates that are screwed into the ground outside the foundation wall. The helical plates act as anchors, allowing the tiebacks to pull the foundation wall back into place. The tiebacks are installed by drilling a hole into the foundation wall and inserting the rod through it. The helical plates are then screwed into the ground outside the wall, and the rod is tightened to apply tension to the wall. This process pulls the wall back into place, preventing further damage and providing additional support.

Both wall anchors and helical tiebacks are effective methods to repair and support failing foundation walls. However, the specific method used depends on the underlying cause of the wall failure, the type of foundation wall, and the soil conditions surrounding the home.

Grouting and Mudjacking

Grouting and mudjacking are two common methods used in foundation repair to address problems such as settling, sinking, and cracking. These methods involve injecting materials into the ground beneath a foundation to stabilize and level it.

Grouting involves injecting a cement-based material, known as grout, into the ground beneath a foundation. The grout fills in voids and creates a stable base for the foundation to rest on. Grouting is often used to stabilize foundations that have settled or shifted due to soil erosion or other factors.

Mudjacking, on the other hand, involves injecting a mixture of water, soil, and cement through small holes drilled into the foundation. The mixture fills in voids and lifts the foundation. Mudjacking is commonly used to level concrete slabs, such as sidewalks, driveways, and patios.

Both grouting and mudjacking are effective methods for foundation repair, but they are used in different situations. Grouting is typically used for larger structures, such as buildings and homes, while mudjacking is more commonly used for smaller concrete slabs.

What Causes Most Foundation Problems?

Most foundation problems are caused by differential settlement or hydrostatic pressure. Both can cause serious damage and costly repairs if left untreated. 

Differential settlement occurs when the soil beneath the foundation shifts unequally, causing the foundation to sink or settle at different rates. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including soil composition, moisture content, and geological conditions.

One common cause of differential settlement is expansive soil. When soil contains high levels of clay or other minerals that can absorb and retain water, it can expand and contract dramatically with changes in moisture levels. This can put significant pressure on the foundation and cause it to shift or crack.

Hydrostatic pressure is another common cause of foundation problems. This occurs when poor drainage allows water to build up in the soil around the foundation, creating pressure that pushes against the foundation walls. Over time, this pressure can cause the walls to bow or crack, leading to structural damage and leakage.

Other factors that can contribute to foundation problems include poor construction practices and natural disasters such as earthquakes or floods.

Common Signs of Foundation Problems

The most common signs of foundation problems include the following:

  • Cracks in walls, especially those that are wider than 1/8th of an inch, and visible cracks on the exterior of the home’s foundation. 
  • Another sign is doors and windows that won’t close properly or appear to be out of alignment. 
  • Uneven floors, sloping or sagging floors, and bulging or bowed walls are also signs of foundation problems that require immediate attention.
  • Other signs your home might have a foundation problem include gaps between the walls and the ceiling, as well as the walls and the floor
  • If you notice any signs of moisture or water damage, this can also indicate a foundation problem, as water can seep into the foundation and cause it to weaken. 
  • Pests such as rodents or insects can also be a sign of foundation problems as they can enter through cracks and gaps in the foundation.

How Can Homeowners Help Prevent Foundation Problems?

Fortunately, there are various preventative measures you can take to help ensure your foundation remains intact. These include the following:

  • Good drainage – One of the primary ways homeowners can prevent foundation problems is by ensuring proper drainage around their property. When water accumulates around a home’s foundation, it can lead to moisture buildup, which can weaken the foundation over time. To prevent this, homeowners should make sure gutters are clear of debris and in good working order, install downspout extensions to carry water away from the foundation and grade the landscaping around the home to allow for proper water runoff.
  • Be on the lookout for signs of foundation problems – Another way homeowners can help prevent foundation problems is by monitoring for signs of foundation issues. As noted above, common signs of foundation problems include cracks in the walls or floors, doors and windows that stick or do not close properly, and uneven flooring.
  • Ensure your home’s plumbing and sewage systems are in good working order. Leaky pipes and sewage backups can lead to moisture buildup and soil erosion around a foundation. Have your plumbing and sewage systems inspected regularly and promptly address any issues that arise.
