Home foundation problems alert many homeowners because they often look much worse than they actually are. Because of this, your foundation may seem like it is beyond repair and must be replaced.
It's important to take every foundation problem, but it's also important to bear in mind that most have a simple, permanent solution. Destroying the old foundation and building a new one in its place is NOT the solution.
Replacing your foundation often doesn't properly address the original source of your foundation problem which is the soil around your home. It involves excavating the entire perimeter of the house, placing the structure and temporary supports, building a new wall, and filling the perimeter back in. This process is both time-consuming and expensive, to say the least.
Foundations old and new can experience damage from expansive soils, settlement, frost, and other forces. That's why we at The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky prefer to address problems without rebuilding -- using reliable, permanent solutions.

Pressure from outside your foundation walls —from expansive clay soils and from soil saturated with water—can impose loads that your walls were not designed to withstand.
Once soil pressure exceeds a wall's strength, the wall will begin to bow inwards, tilt at the top, and/or slide inwards at the bottom.
If the problem is ignored long enough, it can even lead to the collapse of the wall. We have simple, effective solutions for failing foundation walls that can be installed quickly -- often in a day or less!
Our foundation wall anchors are designed to both stabilize foundation walls and provide additional adjustment capability to return them to their original position. Our repair techniques will stabilize the wall right away. Completely straightening a bowed wall can be done gradually or immediately, depending on the strategy you select.
Bowing, tilting foundation walls should not be left that way! Our wall straightening services can get your walls back to a straight, stable position in no time.
If you live in a region where your streets are made with concrete, the expansion and contraction of the concrete can lead to serious damage to your foundation.
As its expansion joints begin to fail, a concrete driveway can exert tremendous pressure on the garage slab and walls, and on your foundation walls. This can lead to serious cracks in these walls.
Street creep can be effectively repaired with our street creep repair system, which includes wall anchors and improved expansion joints.
Your house weighs a lot, and the soils underneath may have a limited ability to support that weight. As the soil fails to support the structural weight, part of all of it may begin to sink downwards. As it does, a wide variety of problems can result, including cracked walls and floors, tilting chimneys, jamming doors and windows, and other issues.
Stabilizing a foundation with foundation piers can transfer the weight of your home to competent load-bearing soils or bedrock deep below your home, bypassing inadequate soils that are causing settlement problems.
Floors above crawl spaces often begin to sag for three major reasons: sinking mid-span supports, poorly spaced supports, and rotting structural members. This damage shows up in the living space in the form of uneven or bouncy floors, jamming doors and cracks in the wallboard.
Repairing a damaged crawl space can often be done in less than a day. Heavy duty support posts can restore structural stability to the home, and they may even return the floor to its original straight, level state.
