Foundation problems may be the result of a sinkhole or the result of changing moisture conditions in the soil under your home. Trees or shrubs too close to the foundation or poor compaction can also result in foundation sinking or failure. Look for cracks in the walls and floors, sticking doors and windows, and bowing walls, as these are signs of a foundation issue.
To fix the issues in your foundation, we offer underpinning methods such as steel push piers, helical piers, wall anchors and helical tiebacks. These foundation repair products are designed to level, support and stabilize bowing and leaning walls, sloping floors, leaning or tilting chimneys and much more. All of our products are made by Earth Contact Products, the leading manufacturer in underpinning. ECP provides the latest, high-quality products for homeowners, contractors, and engineers.
Homes that are situated along a lake may develop foundation issues due to soil erosion. The best way to prevent erosion from the lake is to install a lake wall, which will keep the ground in your yard contained and prevent erosion from forming voids under your foundation. If you suspect that your lake wall has an issue, look for the following signs:
- Deterioration and crumbling
- Bowing or leaning
- Cracks – horizontal or vertical
- Outward movement
These are all indicators that your lake wall is no longer solid and needs to be repaired. We have professional lake wall repair solutions. We can install seawall helical anchors to pull the wall into place or use targeted grout injection to stabilize it. Call now to find the best solution for your home!
