Our Foundation Repair Solutions

During your complimentary foundation inspection, our foundation repair experts will diagnose exactly what’s causing your foundation damage and help you choose the solution that’s right for your home and your budget.
Our foundation repair solutions include foundation underpinning solutions, such as helical piers and resistance piers, as well as the Abe Jack system, helical tieback systems, and carbon fiber systems for bowing wall repair:
Helical piers are used to transfer the weight of a structure from unstable surface soil to deeper soil and bedrock with a greater load-bearing capacity. They look like large screws and can be driven into the ground using a large rotating bit, giving them the advantage of fast installations with no excavations required. Other benefits of helical piers include:
- High load-bearing capacity
- Can be installed vertically or horizontally
- Fast installations
- Ideal for tight spaces
- No excavation required
- Can be installed in the winter
- Can reach great depths
- Can be installed in the winter
- Ready for instant use
- Accurate installations
- Opportunity to lift foundations back to level
Like helical piers, resistance piers are used to transfer the weight of your foundation to load-bearing bedrock or strata for support. They support the weight of the failing foundation and give you the opportunity to push your foundation back into place using hydraulics.
- Can often close cracks and other defects caused by settlement
- Provides the opportunity to lift the foundation back to level
- Cost-effective solution
- Allows for installation in areas with limited access
- Immediate loading
- Load tested on-site meaning no need for spoils report
Abe Jack System
The Abe Jack System is a foundation repair solution used to repair and stabilize bowing, buckling basement and foundation walls. The system uses steel beams to brace the wall, enabling it to resist the lateral forces causing its movement. This solution often provides an opportunity to realign the wall close to its original position.
Helical Tieback System
Helical tiebacks are the horizontal application of helical piers. Rather than underpinning the foundation, they are used to horizontally reinforce and stabilize foundations that are subject to lateral forces.
Carbon Fiber System
In situations where the Abe Jack system and helical tiebacks are not applicable, we may use the carbon fiber system to address bowing walls. Carbon fiber systems are made high-strength fabric that are extremely durable and do not stretch. They are epoxied to the bowed wall, stabilizing the foundation and preventing further movement from occurring.
