FOUNDATION & BASEMENT REPAIR

We specialize in various types of foundation and basement crack repair which includes I-Brace reinforcement, which is the process of installing steel I-beams with engineered brackets that apply load against the foundation and prevent further movement. The I-Brace is used when walls have an inward deflection in excess of 2 inches.

We also use carbon fibre reinforcement. In this process, we grind the surface of the wall to remove any dirt/debris to ensure proper adhesion. We then mix an epoxy and glue the carbon fibre strips to the wall and install top and bottom mounting brackets. Once the epoxy has cured, the straps become unstretchable, which means no further movement can occur. This method is used when your basement foundation has 2 inches of deflection or less.

We also replace foundations that are not just cracked, but are beyond repair. This method is much more in depth. The structure needs to be lifted for the old foundation to be removed. We then install the new foundation and waterproofing system. After this is complete, the house sits back down on the new foundation and all utilities are reconnected.

Below are some of the many benefits that basement foundation and crack repair has to offer:
