St. Augustine in Florida has a climate that is considered subtropical and very humid. Tropical air can wreak havoc on your Florida home’s foundation. Florida homes need strong foundations that will endure high winds as well as support the weight of the home and its contents. If you begin to see cracks in the foundation or on the seawall in or around your home or business, it is important to address the cause before the situation worsens.
Call us for expert advice about foundation repair. We use reliable products from ECP (Earth Contact Products) to repair your foundation. Underpinning piers can be installed to lift sinking and settling foundations, while tiebacks can be used to reposition shifted foundations.

St. Augustine and other Florida communities are also plagued with problems with sinkholes because of the limestone layer that lies beneath the soil. This soft limestone layer is easily washed away with common acids that are washed beneath the soil with rainwater. Our number one remedy for sinkhole repair is compaction grouting, which firms-up the loose soil and closes-off the throat of the sinkhole. Compaction grouting increases the density value to all surrounding soil and structures.
Watch out for the signs of a sinkhole including cracks in sidewalks, driveways, pools, walls, slabs, and foundations. Since Florida is known to frequently have sinkholes it is good to always inspect your property for the signs a few times a year. You might see scary, large sinkholes on the news, but even a small sinkhole can be a nightmare if it appears under your home or business.
