There are many tell-tale signs that can show up if you have foundation settling and structural problems with your home.
A new home's foundation is dug in well-packed, virgin soil. After the foundation is poured and then set, the old, loose soil that was removed is placed back around the concrete as "backfill". That backfill doesn't have the same strength and support as it once originally had. As it compacts over time it will settle and compress, allowing for sinking and displacement. That loose-packed soil can also erode away with water flow, providing no support what-so-ever. Loose backfill can also let water run easily through it and collect around or under your basement flooring where it will seep into your home. Basement Systems Winnipeg has many repair system solutions for the structural issues your home may have.
Basement Systems Winnipeg uses the Foundation Supportworks push pier system to stabilize and lift a house back to it's original level. It sets the house on a series of galvanized steel piers that are pushed straight down through the unstable soil and onto a solid soil or bedrock footing
The foundation push piers used can be installed at any time of the year and without the use of heavy construction equipment. Installation usually takes about a day, and it can be accomplished with minimal damage to your yard's landscaping.
The push pier system can stabilize foundations that are settling/"sinking" and can raise a faltering structure back to its original position. Learn more about foundation push piers.
Helical piers are incredibly stable because they are literally screwed down into the earth as opposed to being pushed straight down. They can be used on their own for support or in combination with a Push Pier system.
Installed by hand or by light construction equipment, the shaft of Helical Piers have a high resistance to bending. More information about helical piers systems for foundations.
Foundation soil can shift and settle after repeatedly becoming wet and expanding then shrinking when it dries out. This alternating between wet and dry can cause sinking columns and sagging crawl space beams. Sagging beams let the above flooring in your home to warp and sink. Our SmartJack Crawl Space Stabilizer system was constructed with steel support beams that fully stabilize those sagging wooden beams and bring safety back to your house.
Some common foundation problems are walls that are bowing or leaning in. This is often caused when the pressure on the outside of the wall surpasses the load-bearing capacity due to water pressure change or soil shifting.
To restore the structural integrity of the bowing wall, a foundation wall anchoring system can be installed. Less costly than wall removal and replacement, anchors can be in place in a short amount of time and with little disturbance to your yard. More information about basement wall anchors.
