causes and hazards of foundation damage
Foundation damage is typically caused by improper foundation installation, bad soil conditions and weather. This can cause your home or business to experience foundation cracks, uneven floors, exterior and interior wall cracking. Water infiltration in basements and crawlspaces and doorframes and windows that aren’t square can occur as well.
- Poor Soil Conditions – Improperly compacted soil or building on clay without foundation pilings
- Poor Drainage Around the Foundation – Improperly graded soil, poor gutter drainage and a lack of French drains can contribute to poor foundation drainage
- Extreme Seasonal Temperature Changes – Ground freeze/thaw cycles can affect the structural integrity of your building’s foundation

These types of repair are great for foundations that have experienced soil erosion or water infiltration.
deep foundation piling
Deep foundation piling is a form of foundation repair that anchors your home or business’ foundation deep in the earth. It often involves drilling ductile iron piles, helical piles or micropiles deep into the soil beneath your building and anchoring them to your foundation. This is done using large screws or industrial brackets. This type of foundation repair is great for correcting foundations that have fallen into disrepair due to natural disasters, heavy water infiltration or extreme soil erosion or soil instability.
