Cracks in your basement walls can form over time due to pressure from soil and water. You may not even notice basement wall problems until it becomes a major issue - so it's important to inspect your basement on a regular basis.
Once basement wall problems become serious, you will notice things like water leakage, bowing walls, and major cracks in the wall. If any of these issues are a concern for you, call a basement crack repair specialist immediately.

If you have basement wall cracks, you may be experiencing foundation settlement. Check your home for other signs of foundation problems including:
Most foundation issues are caused by movement in the soil beneath the foundation. As the soil moisture content changes, the soil will shift and move. When this occurs, the foundation of your home will gradually shift and move as well.
At the first signs of foundation failure, it is important to contact a specialist. Foundation repair is not a DIY project and needs to be handled by a professional. Structural problems will only get worse over time, so don't hesitate when looking into repair options. My Foundation Repairs can connect you with a foundation repair contractor that will inspect your foundation and give you the proper repair options.

Our patented solutions will give your home permanent stability so that you will never struggle with foundation problems again.

Helical piers are used when there is a need to resist tension, or a compressive force, or both. They can be combined with a helical bracket as well. Helical piers look like a very large screw and are ideal for foundation repair applications such as support for porches, steps, stairs, and chimneys.
Steel piers provide a two fold system that includes driving the steel piers deep into the soil through unstable soil layers until they reach weight bearing stratum. Each pier is individually load tested to ensure that the piers will support the weight of the structure. After the piers reach the load bearing soil, a hydraulic manifold lifting system lifts the foundation onto the piers, restoring the foundation back to its original level and keep it structurally strong for many years to come.
Helical tieback anchors are installed if you have bowing or leaning walls. They are installed by drilling a small hole into the interior wall, then with exterior excavation, the wall is pulled back to its original level position again. This will also keep the wall from bowing or leaning in the future.
Hydraulic slab lift piers are a fairly new option for leveling concrete slabs. They work much the same way as the other resistant piers. They are installed beneath the slab in a grid pattern spaced up to five feet apart. The slab load is then transferred onto the piers to level and stabilize the slab.
