Do I Need Foundation Wall Repair?
Before we recommend any course of action, we need to determine if in fact you have a foundation problem, or if the cracks you’re seeing are simply the result of water intrusion. If you have poured walls in your basement, cracks will occur as a result of hydrostatic pressure. However, it may not mean that the structural integrity of your home has been compromised. If waterproofing is what’s needed-good news! We can fix that easily with our polyurethane crack injection or other service.
If You Do . . .
If your foundation has experienced problematic movement, you’ve taken the most important step already by visiting StayDry. Our people have worked in the industry for more than 100 years in total, and they’re committed to bringing the best and most reliable ideas to the table. Browse the options below to find a solution that best matches your problem:
Minor Bowing or Bulging
Wall Straightening (Shear Reinforcement): A smart, affordable alternative that can return a wall back to its original plumb state. After securely placing thick wood posts and blocks, our professionals drill holes into the blocks and reinforce them with 16-inch steel rebar. Finally, the cores are filled with concrete to the height of the drilled holes, and the holes are filled with cement. This comprehensive reinforcement is ideal for foundation walls with only a slight curvature.
Fortress Stabilization Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Straps: Advanced technology that stops the wall from shifting without the need for outside excavation. High-strength materials that present minimal obtrusion or obstruction.
Moderate to Severe Bowing or Bulging
StayWall Steel Brace Reinforcement: Steel I-beams are attached to the floor joists of the home and then either bolted to or set beneath the concrete floor of the foundation. While they do create some obtrusion in the basement, they can be the perfect solution for more serious problems.
Complete or Partial Block Wall Rebuilds: The recommended method of foundation repair for walls that are too far gone to correct with the aforementioned methods. Provides the ultimate peace of mind and a brand-new look for your basement.
