Foundation Correction – New Jersey, New York & Texas

Foundation settlement can lead to major structural problems within your home. The weather and soil conditions in New Jersey,New York, Texas can both contribute to foundation problems. Some of the most common causes of foundation failure in the state are:

  • Heaving and Settling: If the freezing and thawing of the unpredictable winter months cause the soil under your foundation to expand and contract, it may lead to heaving and settling of the foundation above.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure: Some storms can lead to excess moisture in the ground, which increases the hydrostatic pressure in the soil. This pressure pushes on foundations, causing the concrete to shift and crack under stress.
  • Erosion: Common after a sudden or severe rain, erosion can wash away soil under your foundation, forming voids that will lead to foundation settlement and sinking.
  • Poor Soil Compaction: If the soil under your home was not properly packed when the home was built, it will most likely settle unevenly over time. The foundation above may also settle and sink as the soil that supports it begins to move.
  • Pooling Water: When water pools around your foundation it can cause a build up of pressure on foundation walls. Remember that when pressure builds up, walls will bow, crack and lean. Water will find it’s way into your basement or crawlspace if this occurs. Mold and mildew can then become a health risk for you and your family.

Foundation problems such as shifting, settling, or cracking foundations often lead to structural problems, including cracks, water problems, and pest infestation. The downward movement of a home’s foundation is known as settlement, a result of soil movement. The movement and pressure can also cause shifting foundations and foundation cracks. If you see cracks in your floor, walls, or ceilings this is a sign that the foundation could be at risk. If the foundation has settled or began to sink due to soil movement, it can be lifted and stabilized by underpinning with steel push piers or helical piers. Thee piers are driven, or screwed as is the case with helical piers, into the ground beneath the foundation until they reach the load bearing soils. Once installed, the piers are used to support the foundation and the home above.

Also if your walls seem to be leaning or bowing, the foundation could have shifted. Shifting foundations often lead to bowing and leaning foundation walls. One way to straighten these walls is with helical tiebacks, which screw laterally into the ground to pull the affected wall back into position. Wall plate anchors, installed by driving an anchor into the yard next to the wall and attaching the anchor to the wall with a rod and plate, are another solutions for shifting foundations.

House lifting



House lifting is the process of separating a building from its foundation and temporarily lifting it with hydraulic screw jacks. The process is the first step in structure relocation in which the building is moved to a different location.

House raising

House raising allows you to increase livable space without having to move.House raising can be a less invasive construction process and cost less (than new construction) because you are not disrupting what exists on upper floors.

House Elevation



The process is used when the homes slab and footings are poured together. Initially this involves tunneling under the home and driving push piers based on soil type, to exposing the footing or grade beams.

House Jacking



House Jacking is the process of separating a building from its foundation and temporarily raising it with hydraulic screw jacks. The process is the first step in structure relocation in which the building is moved to a different location.

House Moving



House moving means picking a house up from its foundation and setting it down elsewhere. See why house moving is an alternative to buying a new house..

Structure Lifting



Structure Lifting, Lowering, & Sliding. For projects in which cranes or other conventional handling equipment cannot be used because of excessive weight, dimensions or space limitations, the Heavy Lifting System often provides an effective solution.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair and cracking can present significant structural problems for your home along with a reduction in the home’s value. Repairing the foundation of a home is time sensitive—if not repaired quickly, it can lead to additional problems that are unrepairable, and the structure will be unsafe to live in.

Foundation Raising

Raising a foundation is an extreme form of repair in which a house is lifted, the old foundation is removed and a new one is built. This is done in situations where the house is intact, but the supporting structure has extreme damage.

Foundation Leveling

The term “foundation leveling” refers to the process of leveling an uneven concrete slab, crawl space or basement foundation to a satisfactory elevation. Foundation leveling can be accomplished using a wide-variety of different foundation repair methods.

Underpinning

Underpinning is the process of strengthening the foundation of an existing building or other structure. Underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons: The original foundation isn’t strong or stable enough. The usage of the structure has changed.

House Leveling

House leveling is a term used to describe the process of lifting a home as close to its original state as possible. Leveling a house is usually accomplished by performing foundation repair. A home that is sinking at one end or multiple places likely has a structural problem.

Equipment & Storage

Heavy Equipment & Storage space is a must-have for your super heavy and awkwardly sized equipment, parts, tools, and machinery. WA conveniently store heavy equipment and bulk items from floor to ceiling.

Pyrrhotite Problems

If pyrite or pyrrhotite are present in the rocks underneath buildings, the swelling can push on the foundation, walls, and basement floor of the building, causing cracks and other structural damage. In some cases, groundwater can then transport sulfates into the cracked foundation, causing further damage.

Crumbling Foundations

Presence of pyrrhotite in the concrete combined with moisture and oxygen. Critical element is moisture and the interaction of pyrrhotite with moisture and oxygen. Homes with small amounts of pyrrhotite (less than 0.3%) still can experience crumbling foundations.
