Our Methods

Depending on your foundation issues, our team can take several different approaches for repair. Each of our methods has its advantages:  

Polymers: For use when dealing with issues of unstable soil, voids beneath concrete slabs, and sinkhole remediation, this high-density polyurethane foam offers durability and stability. It can support 14,000 lbs. per square foot in as little as 15 minutes after application. This repair method is an ideal choice when dealing with wet environments. The foam is hydro-insensitive and displaces water.
Pier Pilings: Pier pilings are a relatively inexpensive way to fix a wide variety of foundation problems. With this method, we’ll use piers to help transfer the load of the building from soil to more stable clays. As the weight of the building is now resting on a more stable surface, this method tends to outlast other repair methods and only takes 1 to 3 days to complete. 
Steel Piers: Steel piers are an even more effective spin-off of the pier piling method. However, instead of using concrete piers, this method uses steel piers that can reach as far as 25 feet below the ground. As steel is stronger than concrete, these piers can also hold more weight. So, as your home’s weight goes up and down depending on things like how much snow covers it, these piers will continue to provide support. 
Drilled Bell Bottom Piers: This method also involves piers. In this case, though, the piers have a wide, bell-shaped bottom that adds more support than simple concrete piers alone. We also reinforce the piers with steel rebar to increase their strength and durability. This method is ideal when dealing with a concrete slab foundation that’s structurally compromised.

Moisture Containment Barriers: One of the most essential components of a healthy foundation is the moisture level of the surrounding soil. As moisture increases, the ground can swell and push up against your foundation. Continuous high moisture levels can also cause the foundation to show signs of deterioration. Moisture containment barriers help lock in the current moisture levels of the soil beneath your home while blocking excessive water from impacting the soil’s consistency. 

Retaining Walls: Retaining walls provide stability to soil and help turn unusable, steep land into level space that’s secure enough to build on. Retaining walls, though, still need routine maintenance and repair to maintain their stable hold on the soil. If you notice your current retaining wall tilting, buckling, shifting, or rotting, it’s time to schedule repairs immediately.
