Foundation repair services at competitive rates
Due to improper foundation laying or pressure from the surrounding soil, water, and landscape features, foundation walls can sometimes become compromised. Left unchecked, walls can eventually collapse, causing potentially severe damage to the structure and injury to those in side. To prevent collapse, a few things can be done. One option is the use of large braces to reinforce and stabilize the foundation walls.
Vertical, steel I-beams stand against the foundation wall, providing a backbone, as it were, to stabilize the wall and correct any bends or buckling. Adequately braced, the wall will continue to support the structure as it was intended to, preventing some potential future settling or shifting over the unfit wall. And because no excavation is required, installation is simple, unobtrusive, and fast.

Another option for reinforcing walls is using a series of steel plates or anchors to hold walls firmly in place and together. Anchors gain leverage from the stable soil to the side of the foundation, reaching past the unstable soil immediately next to the foundation, similarly to how [pier systems] dig below the settling, shifting soil to hard strata deeper in the earth. Whatever is needed to stabilize your foundation is what we’re willing to do.
