Richmond Home Sunken Foundation Repair

Foundation Lifting and stabilization



The homeowner of this property in Richmond BC contacted us because their house was sinking on one side, causing multiple cracks in the ceiling and walls, sticking doors and windows, and pulling away from the driveway and patio. This situation was a concern for the homeowner, who couldn’t have peace of mind thinking about the risks of living in a house with an increasingly worse foundation problem. 

Richmond, BC contains a lot of sandy soils throughout the region. This type of soil is notorious for settlement disasters. It’s common for settlement to occur in homes in areas with this soil. This means that many homeowners will need foundation repair in Richmond.

Luckily, this homeowner knew who to contact for the best foundation repair in Richmond: True Level Concrete.



Our team of installers arrived on-site, checked the area with the homeowner, and got ready to work! 

First, the footing along one side of the home where the main issue took place, was exposed and prepared for the brackets. Then, the brackets were secured to the footing, and piers were driven into the soil. The home was lifted, carefully,  up to its original level position. Our crew monitored the lift from the outside of the home, analyzing any gaps or cracks that rejoined, and from the inside of the home using electronic levellers. Finally, our crew injected PolyLevel foam under the foundation and exterior patio concrete slab to fill any voids and ensure ultimate stabilization. 

Step by step

The process was as follows:

  1. Assessing the issue and logging measurements 
  2. Our crew drove piles under the foundation and the slab
  3. We placed hydraulic lifting rams on the piles and lifted the foundation a few inches
  4. True Level supported footing and slab with structural PolyLevel foam
  5. Permanently stabilized the home foundation


The homeowner was beyond delighted that their home was finally structurally sound and stabilized. Now that this homeowner completed their home foundation repair in Richmond, they finally have the freedom to renovate and the peace of mind knowing that their home is safe, secure, and maximized it’s resale value.
