FOUNDATION STABILIZATION AND REPAIR
Hiding the embarrassing crack in your basement wall with a picture has backfired on you. Now the bottom half of the frame seems to be dangling in thin air. Wait—is that wall actually bowing? You have a serious problem on your hands.
Homes built in clay rich soil (as Ohio is known for) are prone to problems from hydrostatic pressure: when the ground becomes extra heavy from rain and melting snow, placing excessive pressure on your foundation. If not properly mitigated, this can jeopardize the structural integrity of the foundation, perhaps even causing it to collapse. Cracks are also likely to let unwanted moisture into your basement, leading to a host of additional issues.
If you spot any of the following warning signs, it is time to seek immediate professional assistance
- Leaning basement walls
- Interior or exterior foundation cracks
- Water intrusion from damaged areas
The Concrete Pro team is well versed in the most effective methods to correct any of the above situations. Depending on the circumstances, we will implement one of the following:
- I-beam wall braces
- Carbon fiber straps
Both options are superb for strengthening and stabilizing walls, to prevent additional movement and/or damage.
Any lingering cracks will be filled in and sealed with an epoxy injection, to keep moisture outside, where it belongs.
