Solutions

Our experts will locate interior and exterior wall and foundation cracks and recommend either an epoxy injection from the inside or to excavate and seal cracks from the outside.

-Structural Solutions

If your home has extensive structural issues which is common in older homes, the structural integrity of foundation walls is often compromised. For this reason, our team can install underpinnings (a solid foundation laid below ground), I-beams (steel joists or girders with cross-sections shaped like the capital letter I), carbon fiber (a material consisting of thin, extremely strong crystalline filaments of carbon) or replace entire walls to support and strengthen your home. Accordingly, in more complicated and potentially dangerous projects, we partner with a structural engineer to solve your structural issues.

-Crack Repair

  1. a) Poured Concrete Foundation

If your home has a poured concrete foundation, as a result our team will use polyurethane or epoxy injections to seal interior wall cracks. The injection fills from the interior to the exterior and even seals hidden cracks.

  1. b) Concrete Block Foundation

If your home has a concrete block foundation, our team will use hydraulic cement to fill interior wall cracks. If necessary, we’ll implement structural repair remedies to insure that the cracks do not spread or worsen to any degree.
