Foundation Crack Repair
At EverDry Waterproofing, we often use the Stabl-Wall™ system to perform foundation crack repair and provide added support for weak spots in your foundation wall. The Stabl-Wall™ system will stabilize your foundation and protect against future threats, such as earth movement or increased pressure from expanding surrounding soils. The Stabl-Wall™ system consists of carbon fiber sheets that can withstand up to 10 times more pressure than steel anchors and can be simply and quickly installed by the crack to prevent further damage. They do not stretch and can easily be concealed behind drywall or paint. Cracks can also be filled in with epoxy sealant to provide increased reinforcement and seal against encroaching water.
Even hairline cracks are a problem in a foundation, because when water reaches these cracks, it contracts and expands with the changing temperature. In time, small cracks could be a big problem. Don’t hesitate. Call a foundation crack repair professional from EverDry Waterproofing today to make certain your foundation cracks are repaired right.
Sometimes foundations shift and settle, causing the walls to bow or tilt. This could mean serious trouble for your building—after all, you don’t want your property to be the next Leaning Tower of Pisa! If your foundation needs to be fastened to more stable soil or bedrock, piering is the best answer. This gives the sagging part of your foundation more support from a stronger base, discourages further problems associated with settling and shifting, and, in many cases, closes the unsightly gaps in brickwork and masonry. If you have noticed that your foundation is leaning or shifting, contact EverDry Waterproofing today to prevent a wet basement, and worse. Our foundation repair professionals will have your home or business on the “right foot” again in no time!
