The Cost Of Foundation Repair
Every foundation problem is unique to the home, because of this, there needs to be a customized solution. Our foundation repair experts can meet with you for free to discuss what we'd recommend -- and how much that repair may cost.
Repair Or Replace The Foundation?
Many homeowners may feel that their home foundation is beyond repair and needs to be demolished and rebuilt. This is almost never the case!
At Clarke Basement Systems, we agree that it's wise to take every foundation problem seriously, however, most foundation issues have simple, permanent repair solutions.
Replacing your foundation is an expensive, time-consuming process that doesn't really address the root of your foundation issues -- the soils around your home.
Despite popular belief, foundations old and new can experience damage from expansive soils, settlement, frost, and other forces. That's why we, at Clarke Basement Systems, prefer to address these problems on your existing foundation. We want to tackle the problem head on with warranted, permanent solutions that have successfully repaired residential and commercial foundations all across North America.
We Can Fix Your Foundation Or Structural Problem!
At Clarke Basement Systems, we have the specialized equipment, products, and professional experience to fix your foundation problem -- no matter what it is.
The problem with your foundation may vary, so the solution will also accompany the unique scenario. Our professional foundation repair contractors can appropriately assess and repair any problem your home may be experiencing. For example, a helical pier system would be best for a chimney that's tilting, whereas, a wall anchor system would be more effective for walls that require straightening or correcting.
To get you started on the right foot, we'd like to provide you with a free foundation repair quote. We'll introduce you to one of our foundation specialists, who can answer any questions you have and explain how we can permanently restore value and structural stability to your home.
Call or e-mail us today to schedule your free quote! We proudly serve Toronto, Mississauga, Markham, areas nearby such as Brampton, Vaughan, Oshawa, Richmond Hill, Barrie, Peterborough, and the surrounding areas.
Bowing, Buckling Foundation Walls
Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle when outside pressure on the wall become greater than the wall's strength. As the wall begins to fail under the pressure, cracks will form, and the wall will either buckle inwards in the middle, tilt inwards at the top, or slide in at the bottom.
The answer to bowing foundation walls is to add counterpressure to the walls from the inside. By installing foundation wall anchors on the inside of the walls, you can prevent their inward movement and potentially straighten the walls back to a level position.
Foundation Wall Straightening
Our foundation wall anchors are designed to both stabilize foundation walls and provide additional adjustment capability to return them to their original position. Our repair techniques will stabilize the wall right away. Completely straightening a bowed wall can be done gradually or immediately, depending on the strategy you select.
Bowing, tilting foundation walls should not be left that way! Our wall straightening services can get your walls back to a straight, stable position in no time.
The soil underneath your home has settled in many different layers, each with their own characteristics and bearing strength. When these soil layers are unable to bear the weight of your home on top of them, the foundation can begin to sink and settle into the earth.
As foundations sink, your home can experience damage in many different ways. This kind of damage can be permanently stabilized with a foundation pier system. Foundation piers can transfer the weight of the foundation down to soils at greater depth that have adequate load-bearing capacity.
Sticking Windows And Doors
If a foundation issue is causing your home's windows and doors to stick or jam, then it's a safe bet to say the problem is some form of settlement.
Foundation contractors will often install piers to correct settlement problems, stabilizing the structure and often even restoring it to its original position.
If your windows and doors are sticking above a crawl space, the fault may lie in the central post-and-beam support system rather than in the perimeter walls. This calls for a different repair strategy involving new posts and footings.
Tilting, Leaning Chimneys
One of the most alarming foundation issues a homeowner faces is a chimney that begins to tilt or lean away from the house.
The footing or foundation for a chimney is sometimes built separately from the house foundation. This smaller foundation is susceptible to shifting if it's built on soil with poor load-bearing capacity. Shifting and leaning can also occur if the chimney foundation is too small or too close to the surface.
Foundation helical piers can provide an effective repair solution -- without the need to rebuild the structure.
