The entire world is familiar with Orlando, Florida because of the beautiful Disney World complex. Even before Disney World was an attraction, Orlando was nicknamed “The City Beautiful.” Located in central Florida, Orlando typically experiences two seasons. May through September is hot and rainy, while October through April is dry and cool. Homes in Orlando are often enduring heat indexes over 110 degrees with an average annual rainfall of 50.6 inches. Hurricanes remain an ever-present concern in this area too. Different seasons and weather changes ultimately weaken your home’s foundation if it is not properly built, call us and we will assess and fix your foundation problems.
Florida homes need strong foundations that will not only support the weight of the home, but withstand high winds and hot humid temperatures. If you begin to notice cracks or unstable areas in your foundation, it is important to address that before it can lead to larger problems. Our most popular underpinning, home stabilizing services are helical piers and steel push piers. Both help to anchor your home to withstand the severe Florida weather. Call us for expert advice and workmanship. We are experts in foundation repair and crawlspace repair.
Some of the signs to look for in your home that may indicate that you have foundation problems are:
- Cracks in walls
- Cracks on floors

Sinkholes can also create problems in this Florida region. Much of Florida sits on a limestone base that easily washes away with natural acids within rainfall.

We are your experienced Orlando area sinkhole repair company. For all your sinkhole repair needs in Orlando, we have solutions. Void filling uses a grout mixture, which we can inject into a void caused by a sinkhole. This will fill the area and lift a slab or foundation back into place. The mixture we use will be incredibly strong, so you can be sure that it will resolve the sinkhole problem.
