Bowing Foundation Walls

Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle inward when expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure are heavily applied on the foundation walls from the outside - causing foundation walls to slant inwards.

Failing foundations may also be a form of settlement or a variety of many other issues that contribute to the shifting and cracking of foundation walls in the home. That's why it's important to have one of our in-house foundation repair specialists inspect your property, so that we can completely understand what specific issue is causing problems with your foundation.

We repair bowing walls from the outside with our Geo-Lock Foundation Wall Anchor System.

When outside access is not possible, we recommend our PowerBrace™ I-Beam System.

Our solutions will do more than simply stop inward movement -- they can also be used to straighten the walls back to their original position.

Foundation Settlement

Foundation settlement can occur when the soils underneath the foundation can no longer support the weight of the home. This type of uneven weight distribution can lead to serious structural damage within the home such as cracked foundation walls, cracked drywall, doors and windows out of square, and tilting chimneys.

Foundation Supportworks'™ line of foundation piers are a great option for repairing foundations experiencing settlement and sinking structures of all types.

The sturdy foundation piers are corrosion-resistant and can stabilize and lift your foundation back to a stable position -- permanently!

Sinking Floors Over Crawl Spaces

Floors begin to sink over crawl spaces for three common reasons: When there are inadequate supports, when the supports begin to sink into the ground, and when the structural wood holding up your floor begins to rot and grow mold.

When crawl space structures experience settlement, the entire home above can begin to show damage. Drywall will crack, doors will stick and floors will become uneven. If the crawl space is damaged by mold, there may also be moldy, musty odors upstairs.

To quickly restore the structural integrity of your crawl space, we install rugged steel supports called the SmartJack® Crawl Space Support System, a warrantied and exclusive product from Foundation Supportworks. Our crawl space repair system also can address mold and rot damage, where the environment is dehumidified and encapsulated to prevent further structural damage.
