How much time do you take to think about the foundation of your own home?

Cracks

Wall cracks in stair shape are signs of foundation problems and settlement.

It is important to take time to care for your home’s foundation the same way you would care for the lawn or the interior structure. If your home begins experiencing foundation problems then you, your family, and your home will be in danger.

The most common signs of foundation issues are wall cracks and bowing walls. Cracks will form in your outdoor or indoor walls in stair-like shapes when you have foundation problems. Soil expansion and hydrostatic pressure are the two most common causes for foundation problems.

Soil expansion happens when the moisture changes in the soil surrounding your home due to the different seasons. This moisture change will cause the soil to expand or shrink which creates pressure against your foundation. Hydrostatic pressure is when water that’s gathered around the foundation of your home begins to put excessive pressure against your foundation causing your walls to crack or bow in.

The best news about these problem signs of foundation problems is that Foundation Recovery Systems has solutions for your home.

Wall Anchors

Wall Anchors

Wall anchors are one of the solutions FRS is able to provide for your home. This wall repairing system provides stabilization for the packed soil on the outside of your foundation which creates an area to brace your foundation wall. Wall anchors cease all movement that put pressure against your foundation, and can slowly move your walls back to their beginning position.

  • Another great wall repair solution is the Carbon Fiber Wall System. This is a clean repair solution created from carbon fiber and industrial epoxy. This system fits right into the walls of your home which allows access to paint over the system and provides constant support to bowing foundation walls.
  • Lastly, the IntelliBrace Wall System is a great solution for foundation walls with structural steel designed to continually build the strength of walls over time.
