Miramar, FL is a part of the tropical monsoon climate zone. The city receives about 55 inches of rain every year. This climate can actually bring about some potential issues for Miramar homes. Precipitation can cause problems for foundations. When the ground around your home becomes saturated, it places what is called hydrostatic pressure on your foundation. This generally is not an issue because the foundation can take the pressure. When short, heavy downpours suddenly soak into the soil though, it becomes overly saturated. When this load becomes too much to bear, your foundation may begin to crack. You may see problems such as:
- Foundation, floor, or wall cracks
- Bowing or leaning walls
- Sloped or uneven floors
- Water leaking in home
- Sticking doors or windows
- Settling or sinking foundations
If you notice such a problem happening in your Miramar home, especially in the wet season, give us a call. We are here for all of your foundation repair needs. Our team specializes in a variety of foundation repair solutions, including the installation of underpinning piers from ECP (Earth Contact Products).

Seawall & Lakewall Repair
If you live near the coast, whether it is the ocean or a lake, it is vital to the health of your home and foundation to have a seawall or lake wall in place. Having a sturdy seawall keeps the ground around and underneath your home from eroding. If there is a problem with your seawall, getting it repaired right away is important. That is why we offer seawall repair options. For seawalls that have started to deteriorate and crack due to soil movement below the ground, we use targeted grout injection to stabilize them. We can also install helical seawall anchors to pull bowing or leaning seawalls back into position. Let us know how we can repair your seawall or lakewall in Miramar, Florida.
Sinkholes are very common in Florida because of its limestone terrain. Sinkholes are common when the soil beneath your home is limestone because it is naturally dissolved by ground water. Watch for misaligned doors and windows, leaning walls, sloping floors, and cracks in your walls and floors. If you notice any of these issues, do not hesitate to give us a call.
If we do find that a sinkhole might be a threat under your home, we specialize in compaction grouting to fill in the loose soil beneath the earth that causes sinkholes. Compaction grouting uses controlled displacement to increase the density of loose soils and fill the sinkhole.
