We utilize two methods for doing crack repair jobs. The first is an epoxy injection. The ports are cap sealed over the crack using a two part mixture. The crack is then injected with the epoxy resin, thus returning the foundation back to its original structural strength and completely eliminating water leakage. A polyurethane based material is our second method of crack repair. This material seals the crack from the exterior. However, do not confuse this material with tar, by its appearance. This polyurethane material is resistant to sun and will not deteriorate, unlike tar. This method is guaranteed to provide many years of a permanent water tight seal.Helical Tie Backs
We repair bowed walls by running one and a half inch square helical piers until they lock up at 3000 foot pounds of torque and connect the shaft to all thread rods running into the foundation wall. We then can bring the foundation wall back to its original structural design and stabilizes your wall.
Steel driven piers. For piering we use a system designed by Rapid Support Systems. The design is a high lift drive bracket which uses a hydraulic cylinder to drive a galvanized steel pipe to bed rock or until pier has locked up at load bearing strata. These brackets have been rated by the LRFD to have a load bearing strength of 120,000 lbs. for a single pier.
Porch Piers It can be costly to have your porch roof supported and to have new concrete slab poured due to risks incurred when the concrete resettles. We will use the same type of helical as in tiebacks to run down but instead of all thread we use a porch bracket to raise and stabilize your existing porch at an affordable price.
