We solve all foundation problems including:
- Crack Repairs
- Drain Tile Replacement
- Wall Reinforcement
- Walls Straightened
Steel Reinforcement Beams
Exterior forces (including hydrostatic pressure) will cause a basement wall to crack and begin to buckle or bow inward. In accordance with municipal codes and standards, reinforcement beams (steel columns designed to run vertically between the floor joists and the basement floor) are placed at engineered intervals to reinforce and stabilize the wall. Depending upon the severity of the bowing, outside excavation may be required in order to straighten the wall to its initial design.
Interior / Exterior Drain Tile Inspection and Repair
Water will always take the path of least resistance. Properly functioning drain tile is designed to create an area of low pressure (little resistance) to facilitate the flow of water to a sump crock or away from your home. Clogged or plugged drain tile results in an increased area of hydrostatic pressure, which in turn forces water to migrate through basement walls, joints, and cracks.
