The complicated nature of foundation repair.
There are several contributing factors that lead to a foundation problem. They include poor and inadequate drainage, plumbing leaks, extremely dry soil and poor soil conditions. It takes an experienced professional to both analyze and develop repair plans. That’s why you shouldn’t trust just anyone to do your foundation repair. Because merely fixing the same cracks over time simply won’t cut it.
Trust the leader in foundation repair.
With over 55 years of experience, U.S. Waterproofing has helped over 300,000 customers achieve their goal of a dry basement and stable, secure foundation. We’ve trained and certified a team of specialists to advise our customers of their options. We also use a highly skilled team of installers, separate from our waterproofing division to ensure the highest quality workmanship.
Finding the right solution for you.
A structural advisor will be sent to your home to assess your problem. They will come equipped with the latest state-of-the art equipment to determine the amount of foundation movement that has occurred. Of course, this analysis is free and without obligation on your part.
If the foundation wall has shifted or bowed inward, we’ll recommend Carbon Fiber Wall Reinforcement or a Wall Bracing System to restrain and stabilize the wall to prevent further inward movement. If it is determined the foundation has dropped, we’ll recommend a Foundation Underpinning System to prevent further vertical settlement.
