The weather in Arkansas can impact the foundation of your residential or commercial property. The soil beneath your foundation can shift, move, and create voids due to the changes in the amount of moisture in the ground. Changes in the soil can cause the foundation to shift as well. This shifting of the foundation can cause structural damage throughout the entire structure.
If you see any of these signs of foundation failure in your home or business, the experts at Foundation Repair Services have the products and experience to get your foundation back to its original level and make it structurally sound again.
We use underpinning products such as steel push piers and helical piers to level your foundation. These piers are driven deep into the soil through the unstable soil layer until they reach a solid soil layer. The foundation will be back to its original level and structurally sound again. For bowing or leaning walls, Foundation Repair Services uses helical tiebacks to pull the walls back to their original level. They are installed through a small hole that is drilled through the wall, then with exterior excavation, the wall is pulled back to its original level. This will also give the wall strength so that it will notbow, lean, or collapse in the future.
Don't let a wet basement cause you to lose living space or ruin personal possessions in your Arkansas home. A wet basement can also promote the growth of mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can cause several health issues for you can your family. Due to the severe storms that can hit the area of Arkansas, your building is vulnerable to water problems. It is important to have proper waterproofing for your Arkansas business or home.
Foundation Repair Services offers several types of waterproofing, including:
Interior waterproofing is done using a sealed drain tile which is installed next to the interior footing, below the concrete floor. This drain tile can be used with a wall vapor barrier. Exterior waterproofing stops water from collecting around your foundation, preventing it from entering the basement. A perforated pipe is installed along the exterior of the foundation and attached to a sump pump system which draws the water away from the foundation. Foundation Repair Services also offers crawl space encapsulation. We use ECP vapor barriers to line the crawl space to keep moisture out. Crawl space encapsulation will keep your crawl space free of moisture, odor, mold, mildew, insects, and structure rot.
If you have concrete around your home that has cracked, heaved, or is sinking, Foundation Repair Services offers the methods of polyjacking to get your concrete back to its original level. This method involves drilling small holes into the affected concrete. Then polyurethane foam is injected into the holes to fill all of the voids beneath the concrete. This will lift and level your concrete. This polyurethane foam expands to 40 times its original liquid form. Some of the most common areas that polyjacking is used for to repair concrete are:
