Foundation Problem Signs in Des Moines

Foundation problems can show up in many forms. Signs that your Des Moines foundation is succumbing to hydrostatic pressure include basement wall cracks and bowing basement walls. If your foundation is settling, you’ll notice drywall cracks, drywall nail pops, and sticking windows and doors. Other symptoms to be aware of include uneven floors and leaning chimneys. At the first sign of these issues, be sure to reach out to foundation repair professionals at Foundation Recovery Systems for a free inspection and repair estimate before they have a chance to worsen.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Des Moines

Foundation issues can stem from a variety of causes, but they typically boil down to one main source – the soil your Des Moines home was built on. The silty clay loam common throughout Des Moines can be problematic and unstable, especially during times of constant rain or lack of moisture. If the summers are wet, the soil can greatly expand and develop hydrostatic pressure that presses against the basement walls with so much force that they crack, bow, and leak. If there is not enough moisture in the silty clay loam soil, it will dry out and shrink, leaving the foundation without sufficient support and causing voids the foundation can sink into.

Foundation Repair Solutions in Des Moines

Every house in Des Moines has a different foundation and problems to deal with, which is why every home needs unique repair solutions. We at Foundation Recovery Systems are pleased to provide a range of options to help restore the stability of your home’s foundation including wall anchors, specialty wall repair beams, and carbon fiber straps. Depending on the type and extent of the damage to your foundation, we can install helical piers, push piers, or slab piers to alleviate foundation settlement.

Our home had several sidewalk sections that had sunk at different rates, leaving uneven edges that were trip hazards. Bryce and Brandon of FRS briefed me on their approach to leveling the walkway. They worked hard and carefully, and their experience showed in how good the sidewalk now looks, with trip hazards eliminated. While the service is not inexpensive, communications, process and work went well, with an end result that was better than I anticipated.

Recently we had Foundation Recovery Systems come out and do some work in our basement. The guys did an amazing job! Our basement looks fantastic and not a drop of water has come in since! Chris, Cliff and Zion were the crew that came out and they were professional, quick and extremely easy to work with. They took care to pick-up the construction mess and their communication was fantastic. The project even got done faster than expected. I appreciate the work they put in and would 100% recommend them to anyone.

Thank you to the great team at Foundation Recovery Systems. Our front stairs were pulling away from the house due to a sinking sidewalk and we were finding cracks in our driveway from voids under the surface. Todd came out and walked us through the quote, answered all of our questions. Today we had a great experience with our installers Bryce and Brandon. They were very thorough in walking through the work process and the finished process looks great. The plugs where the poly were inserted look seamless, everything looks great. Polite, punctual, professional, excellent work!

Foundation problems suck, let's be honest. Cody Shipley walked us through the options and helped us find something that worked with us.Furthermore, I'm impressed at the hoops the crew installing it had to go through. Our neighborhood streets are being worked on by the city and they had to deal with our street potentially getting closed without notice. They had a plan if it came to that, but thankfully it didn't.
