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.

Foundation Recovery Systems installed 11 helical piers on the sinking addition to our house. First, our inspector/estimator, Tanner, was very informative, listened well to our concerns, and was easy to communicate with. After work was completed, Tanner followed up with a phone call to make sure we were pleased with the crew's work. Our crew foreman, Jon, and the rest of the crew were very professional and very hard working. Jon communicated with me clearly about what they were doing and why each step of the way. He also kept me informed of obstacles they encountered and how they were solving them. The crew accidentally damaged some window trim and an exterior door threshold, but Jon told me immediately about it and the company has reimbursed us every penny for repairs. The crew completed their work and we are so happy we hired FRS!

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.

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.

We had the pleasure of meeting with Chris for initial consultation. We cannot say enough about how great the experience was! He was communicative the day of the appointment, prompt, knowledgeable, and was straightforward about what issues he saw right off the bat as well as what kind of price point we could expect. We were given multiple options and there was never any pressure to make a decision. On top of that, there was never a moment where it felt like we were being upsold or given an inflated price. He took the time to go over what the process for the work would look like and what we could expect after. I would work with Chris again in an instant and can’t recommend him enough. Foundation repair can feel like a scary concept but we felt we were in good hands the entire experience.
