Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

in Atlanta & Surrounding Areas

The foundation is an underground structure that spreads the weight of your house to the soil. It consists of footings, foundation walls or piers, and mudsills, all working together to create a stable base for your home.

If you notice signs of foundation issues, foundation repair is essential to fix the damage and protect your home. Foundation problems can arise from soil erosion, flooding, poor drainage, foundation settlement, or ground movement.

Before After

What is

Foundation Repair?

The foundation, located below ground, spreads your house’s weight across the soil, forming a network of support that includes footings, foundation walls or piers, and mudsills. This network is interconnected to create a sturdy base for your home.

When signs of foundation problems appear, foundation repair becomes essential to address the damage and safeguard your residence. Factors like soil erosion, flooding, inadequate drainage, settling of the foundation, or shifting and sinking of the ground can all contribute to foundation damage.

Why You Need

Foundation Repair

Foundation repair serves as both a preventative and corrective measure for foundation issues, which should be addressed promptly to avoid further complications. Neglecting a damaged foundation can escalate into more significant problems, resulting in higher repair costs down the line.

Additionally, timely intervention can prevent structural damage to your home, preserve its value, and ensure the safety of its occupants. Taking action early can spare you the stress and expense of more severe repairs in the future.

Methods

Push Piers
The patented Push Pier system permanently stabilizes your home’s foundation, and, in many cases, can even lift your home back to level. Galvanized steel tube sections are hydraulically driven through steel foundation brackets to reach the depths of competent load-bearing strata. They’re locked into place and the weight of your home is transferred from the original, unstable soils, through the piers, to the competent soil or bedrock.
The Helical Pier System system can lift your home back to level. The patented Helical Pier System offers a permanent solution for stabilizing your home’s foundation and can even lift your home back to its original level. This system involves mechanically “screwing” steel piers into the soil using compact construction equipment. The piers are installed to the necessary depths and capacities, and a steel foundation bracket is then attached to both the helical piers and your foundation’s footing.
A lintel is a horizontal support beam that spans the top of your garage door opening, providing support for the bricks positioned above it. Typically made from steel, garage door lintels can begin to show signs of failure, such as cracking or sagging. Often, these issues arise not just from corrosion over time but also because the lintel was initially undersized for the weight it needed to support.
The CarbonArmor system provides a permanent solution for stabilizing your home’s foundation walls. Utilizing fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs), which are ten times stronger than steel but still flexible enough to conform closely to your basement walls, CarbonArmor ensures robust stabilization.
The GeoLock Wall Anchor System permanently stabilizes your foundation wall and can straighten your wall back toward its original position. Heavy-duty earth anchors are embedded in stable soil away from your foundation wall, and are then connected to steel channel anchors with long, galvanized rods.
The PowerBrace system offers a permanent solution for stabilizing your home’s foundation walls. Custom-sized zinc-plated steel beams are tailored to the height of your basement walls and firmly secured with brackets that anchor to both the basement floor and floor joists.
Ignoring buckling or tilting foundation walls can lead to complete foundation wall failure over time. This often stems from issues such as hydrostatic pressure from moisture-laden soil, expansive soils, frost heave, or other typical foundation problems. Fortunately, total foundation replacement isn’t the only solution. The EverBrace™ Wall Restoration System offers a permanent fix for severely compromised foundation walls.
