When Do You Need Foundation Repair?
Foundations don’t usually sink without there being some apparent signs that it’s happening. You may notice cracks in your basement walls (typically in a stair-step pattern.) Or, you may also see cracks in your exterior walls, even going up several floors depending on the size of the building. These are most readily apparent on brick-faced structures. Other signs are doors that won’t close or cracks in plaster walls. Or even roofs that look like they’ve sagged. All of these could be signs that you’ve got something going on with your foundation that should be addressed before it gets much worse.
Bowed Basement Walls
You can also experience, what we call, bowed walls in a basement. This is where a wall is pushed in by pressure in the ground outside. Sometimes it can be just a small amount. Sometimes it can be several inches and look like the wall is going to cave in. Like other kinds of foundation issues, this one should be addressed as soon as possible, otherwise, the wall could come crashing down, possibly taking a portion of your home with it.

I had a large issue in the driveway of my home. Multiple cracks. It sounded hollowed as you stomp on it in multiple areas. WHAT THEY DID: They filled up the gaps inside. They repaired superficial cracks very well. They brought up the issue of how rain water could be coming under my driveway and causing more cracks in the future, unless prevented with some dirt leveling along the end of the driveway. I so appreciate the advise to minimize problems in the future! HOW THEY DID IT: On budget (Assessment + pricing much better than their direct foam competitor!!!). Professionally (they were cordial; answered all questions before, during and after the service; they were on time and handled the repaired just as they said they would). Awesome experience! Will definitively use them in the future again if needed. I highly recommend them! My job was done months ago. Everything looking great so far!
