Foundation Repair

Some signs of an unlevel or sinking foundation are sloped floors, or doors and windows that stick. We re-level foundations by using heavy duty steel push piers to lift the foundation back up to its original position.

Helical Piers 

Helical piers look like giant screws, and are a very popular choice for projects needing a deep foundation. They are easy to install, and compared to traditional concrete piers they are significantly less expensive.

Drilled Concrete Piers

If your home is built on a hillside, your foundation is more at risk for soil erosion. Over time the soil under your home makes its way down hill, causing problems such as sloped floors, cracks in walls, floors, and ceilings, and windows and doors that are no longer properly aligned. We will re-stabilize your foundation by installing concrete piers deep down into the bedrock.

Polyurethane Foam Injection 

Concrete walkways that have sunk can become a safety hazard and liability issue if not taken care of immediately. This is usually caused by tree roots, drainage problems and expansive soil. To fix these sunken walkways we inject the slab under the concrete with a polyurethane foam,  which expands, lifting it back into position. This minimally invasive method costs less than replacing the entire slab and is twice as fast.

Crawl Space Screw Jack Replacement 

At times, you can notice signs signs of settlement even though your foundation is sound. This problem is usually caused by screw jacks that have deteriorated or sunken crawl space support posts. To lift the floor back into position, we use your existing pier locks to remove/replace the posts or screw jacks.

Foundation Replacement

There are times where the damage on the foundation is too extensive, so repairing it is not the most cost-effective choice. Luckily, we have years of experience in full or partial foundation replacements.
