Foundation Wall Cracks
A second foundation repair service we offer is for foundation wall cracks. Foundation wall cracks happen very commonly to homes all around Baltimore and our service area in Baltimore, Annapolis, Columbia, Rockville, Bowie, Laurel, and in other nearby towns. The Reinforcer™ is the preferred repair solution. It is a carbon fiber strip system that is extremely effective in dealing with wall crack repairs.
Bowed Basement Walls
The third type of foundation repair we offer is a method to fix bowed basement walls which are sometimes called buckling walls. A leaning foundation wall can be repaired or stabilized using The Force™ Bracket. This a resistance based steel I beam system. It forces continual pressure onto any bowed wall and will not only stabilize a wall, it will also push it back into a level or straight position over time due to the spring system.
The Force™ Bracket - is used to stabilize and repair bowed foundation walls. The technology is unlike any of the old repair solutions. The system utilizes an I-beam with a spring loaded torsion load providing 1000 pounds of constant pressure that works to put a bowed wall back into place, and to keep it in place permanently. The Force™ Bracket is a patented system, and in MD we have the exclusive dealership so you won't find it offered from any other basement repair firm in MD or in your local home improvement warehouse. The system is very economical and usually can be installed in a day or two.more
The Reinforcer - is used on cracked foundation walls. It's is a very high tech product used to build all types of modern machines that require great strength and have flexibility. The carbon fiber strips are as thin as a coin but have 10x the strength of steel. Carbon fiber strips used to repair a foundation wall won't decay ever. You can paint over the strips. The Reinforcer™ is a much more effective and cost efficient way to repair a cracking foundation than some of the older methods. The installation process is very clean and only takes a day or less in most cases.more
Push Piers - A push pier is a steel pipe that is hydraulically driven into the ground until it reaches either support strata or bedrock. Then we connect the bracket or brace to the foundation and lift or raise the structure. A push pier is an ideal solution for lifting homes and structures that require a load bearing capacity that is not over the limits of the products useful intent. Once a pier is installed, often times the symptoms that are common with a sinking foundation, such as windows that won't open or stick, or gaps in the foundation or brick will disappear.more
Helical Piers - Helical piers, also known as helical piles, have a helix bearing plate that is attached to the shaft of a steel pier pipe. The piers are "screwed" hydraulically into load bearing soil. A helix allows minimal soil disruption, allowing for a very stable result. Helical piers come in a variety of sizes and with many different load bearing capacities. Our certified and trained piering consultants will calculate the load and make a sound recommendation as to the number and types of piers you may require to stabilize and secure your home or structure that is having settlement problems.more
