Foundation Issues

Foundation Issues vary based on foundation types and consequently the foundation repairs are as unique as the foundations themselves. There are two basic types of foundations, shallow foundations and deep foundations and they are chosen at the time of your homes construction based on soil types.

While shallow foundations can be as low as 3 feet into the soil, deep foundations can be anywhere from 60 to 200 feet deep. Each foundation type presents its own unique challenges when it comes to foundation issues and the need for foundation repair. There is no one repair fixes all when it comes to foundation issues and we custom engineer each solution to suit the permanent needs of your home.

We’ve seen situations that were so dire that the safety of the residents were at risk. Some cases are more severe then others and just because there are cracks in your foundation, doesn’t mean you have a serious foundation issue. Small hairline cracks are common and generally nothing to get to overly worried about. All foundations have a few small cracks and those are generally caused by concrete shrinkage.

***** "They gave me a fair quote that included some necessary work that the other quotes did not including hooking up the electrical and repairing drywall. The guys were very neat did a great job and the left the worksite clean and tidy. The company also followed up with me after the job was done. Very happy, but it hasn't rained yet so I haven't been able to evaluate if the flooding problem has been solved or not." - Colleen F. in Sterling, VA
