Foundation Repair Is a Complex Issue

The complete integrity of your home quite literally rests on its foundation. Anyone who has experienced a foundation issue in the past would be the first to advise you on knowing as much as you can about the foundation of a house before buying. Issues with the foundation of a structure often aren’t the fault of any one cause, but typically are the result of a combination of unfortunate circumstances.

Because foundation issues are a symptom of a wide range of exterior or interior issues, there are many ways to solve the issues that will allow you to repair a foundation. A contractor like Kelley Construction, with our years of experience will be able to recommend which solution is the best fit for the problem a homeowner is facing. Here are some possible solutions for repairing a foundation:

  • Drainage Systems – If the problem is water, this solution will direct water in another path, away from the foundation.
  • Root Removal – If the problem is a root coming in contact with the foundation, this would be the option to use.
  • Underground Piers – If the earth around the foundation has been compromised in some way, this is one option that will provide support to the foundation.
  • Wall Anchors or Reinforcements – If a wall is bowing inside the house, this option provides support and stability for the wall (this option would most likely be used in conjunction with another solution).
  • Slab or Foam Jacking – If the floor of the foundation is sagging, this repair will pump extra support from underneath the floor by pouring cement or foam and letting it settle the floor and harden.
  • Crawl Space Supports – If the sagging floor is caused from weakened beams or flooring above a crawl space, this is often a viable option to add support.
