Understanding Foundation Problems

Foundation issues can come from various factors, including soil conditions, weather changes, as well as just poor construction. The problem is, once foundation issues start, they can continue to get worse over time.

Common signs of foundation problems in your home include:

  • Cracks in the walls floors, or ceilings
  • Uneven or sloping floors
  • Sticking doors and windows
  • Gaps around window frames or exterior doors
  • Basement water leaks
  • Gaps forming around cabinets

Ignoring these warning signs can lead to more severe structural damage, resulting in costly repairs. That’s why we recommend fixing foundation issues sooner than later with the right solutions that will last for years to come.

Push Piers for Foundation Repair

Our patented Push piers are an affordable and reliable solution for stabilizing and lifting settling homes. These piers are attached to the home’s foundation. They get driven deep into the soil, reaching to load-bearing strata or bedrock where the home can “stand”.

Here’s why push piers might be the ideal choice for your home:

  • Stabilization: Push piers provide a solid support system, stopping further settlement.
  • Lift and Level: They can lift the foundation back to its original level, closing cracks, re-levelling the floor.
  • Durability: Made of galvanized steel, therefore push piers are resistant to corrosion and are considered a permanent solution for structural stabilization.

Helical Piers for Versatile Structural Solutions

Helical piers are another effective method for foundation repair, we always opt for them in situations where push piers may not be suitable. These piers are screwed into the ground, the flights/helical provide additional support as they lodge securely in competent soil.

Helical Piers offer the following benefits:

  • Versatility: Helical piers can be installed in various soil conditions, including those with high moisture content such as Richmond soils. 
  • Immediate Load-Bearing: Helical piers can bear loads immediately upon installation, providing instant stabilization.
  • Lift and Level: If driven to load-bearing strata, they can also lift the home back to its original level.
  • Durability: Made of galvanized steel, therefore helical piers are resistant to corrosion and are considered a permanent solution for structural stabilization.

PolyLevel Foam for Slab Repair & Reinforcement

For concrete slab foundations, PolyLevel foam is an innovative solution that can address issues like sinking or uneven slabs. PolyLevel polyurethane foam is a high density foam that expands and cures beneath the concrete. As a result, it can fill, lift, and support heavy slabs.

Here’s why PolyLevel stands out:

  • Precision: PolyLevel foam is injected through small holes, expanding to fill voids, lift and level the slab accurately.
  • Fast and Non-Invasive: The process is quick, with minimal disruption, and the foam cures within minutes, allowing for immediate use of the area.
  • Durability: This foam is super high density and hydrophobic. It can hold extremely heavy loads and won’t wash away with the soils. 
  • Eco-Friendly: Finally, PolyLevel is environmentally friendly and resistant to water, preventing future erosion. It is also a much more eco-friendly alternative to concrete replacement.
