What will be used to fix my foundation?

You wouldn’t want just any old item quickly thrown together with the hope of it keeping your foundation intact. You need the very best solutions that will stand the test of time and the toughest forces to protect your home. That is exactly what we use to repair your foundation.  

The products we install are manufactured here in the United States, and each one is carefully designed and tested by a team of structural and geotechnical engineers. Our heavy-duty wall reinforcement and piering solutions are made with galvanized steel to prevent rust, corrosion, and damage. All our systems come with a long-term written warranty, giving you complete peace of mind. 

Here are the solutions we’ll use to address foundation problems in your home: 

Wall Repair and Reinforcements – The severity of your foundation wall problems can vary, so we offer a variety of repair and reinforcement options. 

  • Wall Anchors – Wall Anchors are the most effective method for permanently stabilizing moderate to severely distressed or bowed basement walls. They extend out to more stable soil well beyond your home’s foundation, providing an anchor point to brace the foundation wall. This stops inward movement and prevents wall failure. The anchors can be tightened over time to help move your foundation walls back toward their original positions. 
  • IntelliBrace™ Beams – IntelliBrace™ beams act the same way as Wall Anchors in stabilizing and potentially straightening moving walls, and they also can be tightened at intervals during dry seasons. They are best to use when there is limited access available outside of the home for exterior wall repair. 
  • Carbon Fiber Supports – Durable Carbon Fiber supports firmly bond to the walls to stabilize and hold them in their current positions. This prevents any further cracks or inward movement. Their low profile and smooth finish allow them to easily be concealed with painted or basement finishing materials.

Piering Systems – Our foundation pier systems are used on settling foundations and walls to permanently stabilize them and help lift them back to their original level positions. Each system is installed in deep soil strata to better support the foundation. 

  • Push Piers – Push Piers are driven through a bracket attached to the foundation footing and down to bedrock or a stable soil layer. This is the most used type of pier for most foundation settlement applications. 
  • Helical Piers – Helical Piers are manually advanced or screwed into the ground and are best for specialty foundation settlement applications and for very light structures like porches. 
  • Slab Piers – Slab Piers can be installed the same way as Push Piers and Helical Piers and are used to stabilize your concrete slab foundation. 

Crawl Space Supports – Floors and floor joists above crawl spaces and basements can sag over time and if they are not properly supported. Our IntelliJack™ system, designed to stop settling, stabilizes these sagging areas and can help lift them back to level.

Additionally, our state-of-the-art PolyRenewal™ system can be used to lift, level, and stabilize cracking and uneven concrete slab floors in your home and garage.
