Bowing Basement Walls Fixed Permanently

Dalton OH foundation repair for bowing walls Today’s latest repair solution for bowing basement walls is carbon fiber mesh “straps”.  These straps are embedded into the face of your foundation walls. Fortress Stabilization offers a system made of both carbon fiber and Kevlar meshed together giving them the ultimate in tensile and shear strength. The Fortress system incorporates top and bottom anchors.  The top anchor will prevent wall tipping or sliding.  The bottom anchor will prevent shearing. The Fortress straps are smooth to the wall and paintable making them barely noticeable. Other older methods available on the market include steel I beams, wall anchors and concrete and rebar fill.

Settling Foundation Permanently Solved With Stabil-Loc Piering

Dalton OH Foundation Repair for settling foundation Commonly referred to as “underpinning”, foundation piering involves installing support from underneath your sinking foundation.  The piers stabilize the foundation to prevent further settling.  There are several types of foundation piers on the market to choose from.  We install the Stabil-Loc pier directly under the foundation giving the foundation the ultimate strength and support.   What causes foundation settlement and movement?  Several things can cause foundation settlement.  Building on expansive clay or improperly compacted fill soils can result in settling.  Improper maintenance around foundations can cause foundations to move and sink. Whatever the cause, settlement can destroy the value of structures and even make them unsafe. If you think there is a problem with your foundation, call for a professional assessment of your property. We will be able to evaluate any damage that has occurred and determine the best plan for your situation. You should routinely check the foundation of your home.  Small cracks can end up causing big problems!

Sliding Foundation Fixed Permanently

Blocks can break free at mortar joints and slide inwards. Typically the cause of this issue is a combination of soil pressure and failing foundation drainage.  Foundation drains which become clogged or backed up allow water to get to the bottom rows of block.  This water can rot the mortar joints between the rows of block, therefore making them weak.  As a result, the weakened points in the wall can give way allowing blocks to slide inward over the row below them.  This movement is called “foundation shearing.” The solution to this problem depends on two factors. How far has your foundation slid out of place?  Is the foundation deteriorating?  Some shearing foundations may be stabilized to stop further movement and others may need foundation replacement.  Contact us today for an inspection.

Rotting Foundation Fixed Permanently

If you have foundation blocks rotting, crumbling apart, and/or falling out of place, you may need a foundation replacement.  Over time the original waterproofing system on the foundation deteriorates.  Many houses have a thin coat of concrete mortar on the foundation, called “parging”.  Parging seals up the pores of the foundation and creates a smooth surface.  Then, a coating of a waterproofing sealer is applied, often referred to as tar.  The tar coating is an asphalt-based sealer, such as what is used to seal blacktop driveways.  Sooner or later, the black coating biodegrades.  Damp soils begin to soak into the concrete or mortar coating once the black seal is gone. A foundation wall can become porous again when the parging begins to deteriorate.  The wall will, therefore, be more susceptible to absorbing dampness.  This causes the concrete to lose its bonding agent, which is lime.  This thus creates a white powder to appear, called efflorescence.  Eventually, foundation rot and mortar rot will lead to blocks shifting, crumbling and in need of replacement. If you catch this process of deterioration early enough the exterior surface can be restored and the foundation can be dry again.  Exterior basement waterproofing and foundation reinforcement can save the foundation and offer many decades of dry stable performance.  Contact us today for an Dalton OH foundation repair inspection.
