Foundation Repair & Stabilization
Do You Have…
- Basement Wall Cracks Visibly Open?
- Basement Wall Bowing In?
- Foundation Shifting/ Movement?
Foundation Stabilization / foundation reinforcement is the process of stopping movement in your foundation before it gets to the point of needing major, costly repairs or replacement. Basement Wall Repair can be accomplished a few different ways depending on your situation. We offer a solution specific to your problem.
Foundation stabilization/ foundation reinforcement can be accomplished these three ways:
- Stabil – loc piers
- Traditional steel “I” beam
- Carbon fiber/kevlar mesh straps (Fortress Stabilization)
Steel “I” beam systems are installed against the wall in the problem areas and are attached to the structure above as well as cemented in under the floor. This method offers a limited warranty.
Our Fortress stabilization systems are bonded into the wall in the problem areas and offer a lifetime warranty.
Carbon Fiber / Kevlar Mesh
Today’s latest repair solution for bowing basement walls is carbon fiber mesh “straps” which are embedded into the face of your foundation walls. Fortress Stabilization has developed a system made of both carbon fiber and Kevlar meshed together giving them the ultimate in tensile and shear strength. These straps are smooth to the wall and paintable making them barely noticeable.
This is the only method available for bowing basement walls that come with a lifetime guarantee… and no maintenance!
Commonly referred to as “underpinning”, foundation piering involves installing support from underneath your sinking or sunken foundation to stabilize it and prevent further settling. There are several types of foundation piers to choose from, the Stabil-Loc pier is installed directly under the foundation for the ultimate in strength and support.
Foundation settlement and movement resulting in the need for foundation repair can be caused by building on expansive clay, compressible or improperly compacted fill soils, or improper maintenance around foundations. Whatever the cause, settlement can destroy the value of structures and your home and even make them unsafe. If you think that there is a problem with your foundation, call for a professional foundation assessment of your property. We will be able to assess any damage that has occurred and determine the best plan for your situation. The foundation of your home needs to be routinely checked. Small cracks can end up causing big problems in the future!
