Bowed Foundation Wall Repair
Pressure from the exterior ground soil can cause block foundation walls to bow and deflect inward. If left unchecked, this condition can result in catastrophic failure.
A-1 will offer different solutions, depending on the severity of the issue. Carbon fiber straps can be used to stop any further deflection if the wall hasn’t bowed significantly. Or, for more drastic issues, A-1 uses methods of repair involving the installation of temporary braces on the interior foundation walls, then excavating the exterior ground around the bowed section of the foundation.
The bowed walls are then mechanically pushed back into place. At this point, steel rebar is inserted vertically into each block before pumping the wall full with high-quality concrete, which is allowed to cure fully. We then backfill the ground soil, and the braces are removed from the foundation walls after 3-5 days. This method not only pushes the wall back into place. it also stabilizes the structure to prevent future bowing. Best of all, there are no unsightly plates and screws permanently installed on the interior basement walls.

I contracted with Andrew Gray of Keystone Foundation Repair to come lift our sunken front porch slab, and was told that it would be a relatively easy and routine job to lift the slab about 8 inches. It wound up being a nightmare situation, but not because of anything that the workmen did. In fact, the crews spent two full days valiantly trying to lift the slab using first foam and then composite, but to no avail. (They had easily and successfully lifted a sidewalk of ours without issue, but the porch slab would not budge.) Andrew apologized profusely and said he would not charge us a single dime for the two days of work, including the unrelated sidewalk repair, because he hadn't been able to accomplish what he promised, even though it was due to circumstances beyond his control. Furthermore, he personally came back to our house a number of times after that, at zero expense to us, to make us whole--scrubbing, cleaning, and power washing on his own time. He handled the whole situation extremely professionally and scrupulously, striving to make sure we were completely satisfied. I would definitely recommend Andrew and his company to anyone who needed foundation repair! This company is most certainly trust-worthy and notable!
