When a large amount of rain falls within a short amount of time, the ground doesn’t have much time to soak it up or allow it to drain. Because of this, the ground around your home may become excessively saturated. This puts hydrostatic pressure on your home’s foundation, which can lead to foundation cracks. These cracks may allow water, insects, and even small animals to make their way into your home. If you’d like to avoid such a problem, give us a call. We use underpinning products from the industry leader in foundation repair products, ECP (Earth Contact Products). With our professional products, like steel push piers, helical piers, foundation wall anchors, helical seawall anchors, and helical tieback anchors, we can take care of foundation issues in your Fort Lauderdale, FL home.

If you see any of these issues in your seawall, contact the seawall repair team at Foundation Professionals of Florida. In order to pull the seawall back to a stable position, we use helical seawall anchors. We also provide targeted grout injection services to stabilize seawalls and keep them sturdy enough to prevent coastal erosion from becoming an issue.
