This structural problem is caused from excessive hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding a home. Whenever it rains, or when there is melting snow on the property, the earth quickly absorbs the moisture. This causes it to swell up, and thus causes the water table around the home to rise. This puts pressure (hydrostatic) on basement walls. Eventually, it proves to be too much and the wall will start to lean or bow into the home. Sometimes, the problem is also seen with wall cracks. The issue must be taken care of before the structural integrity of the home is compromised, and before water seepage starts to get inside.
Our team at Don Kennedy and Sons will make use of SafeBasements™ wall anchors to effectively take care of this foundation repair problem. These devices are set up deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. A plate will be installed inside of the home on the damaged wall.
The two products are connected to each other using a strong, steel rod which can be tightened over time to provide the lateral pressure needed to counteract the hydrostatic pressure from the earth being applied on the wall. This will help to strengthen and stabilize the once leaning wall and push it back into place.
Rhino Carbon Fiber® Wall Supports
This product will be able to provide your leaning wall with additional strength, stabilization, and support. Systems before this one were wet layup materials or made from protruded plates. Rhino Carbon Fiber® took the pros and cons of each type of system and created their well-regarded and effective carbon fiber strap products. The straps are made from carbon fiber Kevlar and they are installed quickly to prevent additional leaning or bowing of a basement wall.
Additionally, for any cracks that have developed, we can fill them in and seal them off using epoxy injection materials to make sure that seepage will not be able to get into the home.

Jeff was very good. He was responsive and I enjoyed his foundation repair services.

I appreciated his feedback and that he wasn't trying ...
Jeff helped us relocate a home this year, and it was hard work and lots of navigation but so rewarding every step of the way. I will never regret not financing a standard family home, and jeffs team made that possible for us.
