  • Causes of Foundation Problems

    While you may have noticed the signs of foundation damage, it can be difficult to find the root cause of the foundation problem. Additionally, without the proper experience, it’s not likely that you’ll fully understand what’s going on. Foundation problems are usually caused by pressure that’s caused by a build of water in the soil outside of the foundation walls. This pressure is exerted on the walls, causing cracking, bowing, bulging and more. Read below about the main factors that influence this pressure on your walls:

    • Soil Type – Some soil types retain and hold more water than others.
    • Saturation Level – Te more saturated the soil is, the more pressure it puts on the walls of the foundation.
    • Foundation Depth – The depth underneath the ground at which the foundation sits will impact this.
    • Temperature – Temperature can affect how much water is retained in the soil and how much is evaporated into the air.
    • Poor Drainage – Failing gutters and drainage systems can lead to accumulation of water around the foundation.
  • When cracks appear in foundation walls, this can be unsettling to even the savviest of homeowners. Foundation cracks will many times point to structural problems that will have to be replaced at some point or another. With that in mind, we provide epoxy injection for foundation cracks. This service can be hugely beneficial for homes with foundation issues – read more about the specific advantages, below!

  • Advantages of Epoxy Injections

    • The strength of the epoxy is much greater than that of the concrete that was used to build the foundation, meaning the newly filled crack won’t give way to pressure.
    • We utilize low-pressure injection methods that allow our technician to know when the crack is fully filled, removing any of the guesswork involved.
    • The curing time allows for the epoxy to seep further into the crack, adding additional stability to the crack.
    • Epoxies are available in various viscosities to suit the specific needs of your foundation problems.
  • Why Choose Us

  • Don was the best. Besides doing a top quality job, he went way beyond the requirement of the job. He found a way to save me having an electrician to hook up the pump. I also like that he found a way to have the water drain into my sewer line, so I didn't need to have the water drained into my yard. At the end of each day, he would take us around and explain what they did and what they would do the next day. I felt very confident with Don and would recommend him highly.

  • Don was great to work with. Explained everything he was going to do, and he and his crew were prompt and always polite. The work itself was of exceptionally high quality. Don stayed on the worksite the entire time. He and his crew cleaned up the worksite and finished in a day and a half just as Don promised. Highly recommend!

  • Don Felton installed steel beams to support a basement wall. He ordered the beams immediately and installed them a few days later, as soon as the materials arrived. Don answered all my questions, clearly explained what he intended to do, and returned calls quickly. This was probably my best experience with a home repair company in the many years that I have needed work done on my home.
