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. My Foundation Repairs has access to basement and foundation contractors all over the country.

What Causes Basement Foundation Problems?
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.

Basement Crack Repair Products & Solutions
The contractors at My Foundation Repairs use the best products available for foundation repair. Some of the solutions used for
foundation repair includes:
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.
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.
Helical tieback anchors are installed if you have bowing or leaning walls. They will 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.
