    Overall the installation went quite well. Your workers are very pleasant, answered my questions and worked hard while keeping everything clean. I do have an issue with getting your company to come out and uncover a window. They left clean space in front of one of our windows and I have been waiting 2 weeks to get them to come back out and fix it. At the end of the installation they were rushing to get out, partially because they were running behind schedule. I didn't notice because it was behind the stairs and I was trying to leave because I needed to go to a meeting that I had scheduled after I had been assured that morning that they would be finished on time. Trying to schedule them to come back out has been VERY difficult and I don't think your office staff realizes how frustrating this is for someone who has paid in full and that it is holding up my finish contractors because they have to work around it until it is complete! Meanwhile your staff keep saying that they don't have anyone "in my area" and act like this is such an inconvenience. It is your mistake and I would like to think that it is worth having someone come a little bit out of their way to fix it (especially when it will take 15 minutes)! Plus I was scheduled for this on Monday and called to find out when they were coming and was told that it was scheduled for the following Monday. I would have never agreed to this since I have my other contractors working that day. What started out as a 5 star project has dropped due to the poor follow through at the end.

    I must admit I was very nervous to have this done. Its scary to rip up the floors with jackhammers, and we have a small space (row home) and I was just very concerned about the entire thing. You guys did a great job. The process took about three hours, you went through everything that was happening, and cleaned up to the point I couldnt tell anything happened. And...the next day, it rained cats and dogs and my basement stayed dry! So even though I was scared in the beginning, I am very glad I did and glad I did it with BQ. (P.S. You guys had the lowest quote too!!)

We Have Simple, Permanent Solutions For Your Foundation Problems!

For our contractors, a typical home foundation repair usually takes less than a week to complete. All of our systems come with a written warranty -- so that you know the problem was fixed right, and so you can have peace of mind for many years to come.

Issues like stair-step foundation cracks, buckling walls, and sagging floors can be devastating to your home's value and make you feel bad about the way your home looks and feels. Our foundation repair systems are designed to do more than just permanently repair your home -- they're also designed to return your structure back to its original position.

Regardless of why you're experiencing a foundation problem in your home, BQ Basement Systems conducts a thorough inspection of your home, and we'll let you know exactly what steps need to be taken to permanently stabilize your foundation and restore value to your greatest investment.

 

Bowing Foundation Walls

Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle inward when the force against them exceeds their ability to withstand this pressure.

Failing foundation walls will crack and leak, and if you have a finished basement, they can lead to cracks in the finished walls. Bowing walls may eventually collapse and should be addressed right away.

We repair bowing walls from the outside with our Geo-Lock Foundation Wall Anchor System.

When outside access is not possible, we recommend our PowerBrace™ I-Beam System.

Our solutions will do more than simply stop inward movement -- they can also be used to straighten the walls back to their original position.

Foundation Settlement

Foundation settlement occurs when the soils underneath a foundation are unable to support the weight of the structure that's resting on them.

A settling foundation will mean a great deal of damage to your home -- including cracked foundation walls, cracked drywall, doors and windows out of square, and tilting chimneys. As foundation damage goes unaddressed, it will become more difficult to repair.

Foundation Supportworks'™ line of foundation piers are a great option for repairing sinking structures of all types.

These sturdy, corrosion-resistant piers can stabilize and lift your foundation back to a stable position -- permanently!

Sinking Floors Over Crawl Spaces

Floors over crawl spaces begin to sink in three scenarios: When there are too few supports, when the supports begin to sink into the ground, and when the structural wood holding up your floor begins to rot and grow mold.

When crawl space structures experience settlement, the entire home above can begin to show damage. Drywall will crack, doors will stick and floors will become uneven. If the crawl space is damaged by mold, there may also be moldy, musty odors upstairs.

Rugged steel supports like Foundation Supportworks'™ SmartJack® Crawl Space Support System can quickly restore your structure. If your structure was sinking due to mold and rot, your crawl space should also be dehumidified and encapsulated to prevent further damage.
