This one-story brick home in Columbia, MO has had one owner for the past 20 years and started showing signs of cracks in the walls and a door that would not shut properly.  Even during freezing temperatures, FRS installed Push Piers around the affected area and the house is now properly aligned.  After some cosmetic touching up, the house will be as good as new.

A couple of years ago these homeowners had wall anchors installed on some walls in their home. One wall did not receive any because the homeowners never had any issues with it but now cracks started to form and the homeowners wanted to sell the home. The home had been on the market for a couple of months and potential buyers were already concerned about the cracks in the wall. Because of this, the homeowners knew that the only way to actually the sell home would be to get this wall fixed. Foundation Recovery Systems came back out a second time and installed five Wall Anchors with Hide Away Covers along with two 9ft Power Braces. The Wall Anchors can fix severe problems such as leaning and cracking walls while the Hide Away Covers conceal the anchors while still allowing for periodic tightening of the system. The two Power Braces were installed because of an issue with the water line but will also support the basement wall and allow for potential straightening over time. The homeowners were happy with the installments of the Wall Anchors knowing that it will help them sell their home and move forward.

Job Stories From Columbia, MO
Injection of Polyurethane at home in Columbia, MO

A driveway approach in Columbia, Missouri needed to have work completed on it because it had begun to sink and settle. The settlement was caused by a large void that was underneath the driveway. And also a small section of the sidewalk by the road had also settled. To help lift the sinking driveway and sidewalk, Foundation Recovery Systems found it best to inject Polyurethane because it requires less holes, its lightweight, has a quick cure time, the material is waterproof, has a high capacity lifting strength, reduces trip hazards and is environment friendly.

FRS drilled a pattern of 10 holes that were 5/8 inches through the sunken slab. The structural grade polymer was then injected under the slab. Once the void was filled, the polyurethane expanded and allowed for the slab to be lifted and stabilized. FRS was able to lift up the driveway but the three holes in the sidewalk could not be lifted because it was not able to rotate. Once the lift was completed, FRS patched the concrete up to where no holes were visible.

Wester Lane in Columbia
This past week Columbia has received about 4 to 6 inches of rain. I just bought this house and haven't even moved in yet. And I have a partial finished basement and it was wet under the stairs and under the flooring I am concerned that there may be an underlying issue, I think I know where the water is coming in from, I think but I am not the expert. I hope it isn't a major issue but I also understand that with the amount of rain we received can make a basement damp but I don't want a little problem to turn into a huge ordeal. I hope you guys can help this first time home owner.

A part of my driveway and garage floor has settled / sunk about 2" below the rest of my driveway and that now allows water to come into the garage with any measurable rainfall we receive.

We have a leak coming in from under a window well. We thought we fixed it and are in the process of having the basement finished. Turns out it's not fixed. We would like to consider putting in a larger window if we have to do substantial work on that spot anyway. Is that also something you all do?
