Foundation Repair Methods
There are almost as many methods to repair house foundations as there are warning signs of structural damage. How your home was built, the cause of foundation problems and the severity of damage influence what repair methods are best to fix your home’s foundation.
Customized foundation repairs address everything listed above in the least invasive way possible, while ensuring longevity and effectiveness.
Any attempts to repair foundation damage should address what caused the damage in the first place. When the soil beneath your home has shifted so the pressure it’s applying to the outside of your walls goes beyond their designed capacity, it’s only a matter of time before the same thing happens again.
Our certified specialists will ensure that the structural repairs made now will not fall apart a few years down the road. We stand behind the customized methods we can use to repair and protect your foundation.
As pressure from soil shifting beneath your house increases, the stability of the foundation between your home and the shifting soil is compromised. Depending on the cause of shifting soil, and the severity of damage it causes, wall anchors and carbon fiber straps may be used to reinforce foundation walls.
Learn when foundation stabilization is the best option for your home.
Rebuilding of any portion of your home’s foundation is necessary when the damage to basement walls is so severe, less invasive foundation repair methods will not suffice. Because excavation is required to dig out your foundation walls, permits and other considerations must be taken into account before work can begin.

Your home may need to be raised or leveled whenever it has sunk enough to cause vertical cracks in your walls. Once a certified foundation specialist has determined what is causing your house to sink, underpinning foundation footers or piering can get your home back on solid ground.
