There are many reasons why a foundation will crack, bow, shift, or buckle. Many times you are able to jack the wall back into place and prevent a complete rebuild. Call us before you have to rebuild your foundation.
Foundation straightening is a fairly simple procedure for us at Olivieri & Son. To start, we excavate the wall from the outside and jack it back into its original position. We then reinforce your wall and go through the waterproofing process to prevent this from happening again. The important step in this process is backfilling with #57 premium wash gravel to grade to relieve any pressure against your foundation. Depending on the location of your home, we may also further enhance our process by adding additional foam insulation boards to the outside of the wall in order to help relieve pressure in the surrounding areas.
