Repair or replace your foundation?

When a home foundation is damaged, things can look much worse than they actually are. In that light, it may seem like the foundation is beyond repair and the only solution is to demolish the old foundation and build a new one in its place. This is almost never the case!

Some homeowners think that replacing the foundation walls and footings to their home is the best solution to fix their foundation issue. Unfortunately, removing and replacing a foundation is a costly, messy and disruptive process to your home, yard, landscaping, sidewalks, driveways and decks. However, the real problem is with the compaction and expansion of the soil rather than with the foundation itself. Without addressing the underlying problem the same foundation problems are likely to occur again and again.

Foundations old and new can experience damage from expansive soils, settlement, frost, and other forces. That's why we at BQ Basement Systems prefer to address these problems on your existing foundation -- with warrantied, permanent solutions that have successfully repaired residential and commercial foundations all across North America.

Bowing, Buckling Foundation Walls

Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle when outside pressure on the wall become greater than the wall's strength. As the wall begins to fail under the pressure, cracks will form, and the wall will either buckle inwards in the middle, tilt inwards at the top, or slide in at the bottom.

The answer to bowing foundation walls is to add counterpressure to the walls from the inside. By installing foundation wall anchors on the inside of the walls, you can prevent their inward movement and potentially straighten the walls back to a level position.

Foundation Wall Straightening

Our foundation wall anchors are designed to both stabilize foundation walls and provide additional adjustment capability to return them to their original position. Our repair techniques will stabilize the wall right away. Completely straightening a bowed wall can be done gradually or immediately, depending on the strategy you select.

Bowing, tilting foundation walls should not be left that way! Our wall straightening services can get your walls back to a straight, stable position in no time.

Settling Foundations

The soil underneath your home has settled in many different layers, each with their own characteristics and bearing strength. When these soil layers are unable to bear the weight of your home on top of them, the foundation can begin to sink and settle into the earth.

As foundations sink, your home can experience damage in many different ways. This kind of damage can be permanently stabilized with a foundation pier system. Foundation piers can transfer the weight of the foundation down to soils at greater depth that have adequate load-bearing capacity.

Sticking Windows And Doors

If a foundation issue is causing your home's windows and doors to stick or jam, then it's a safe bet to say the problem is some form of settlement.

Foundation contractors will often install piers to correct settlement problems, stabilizing the structure and often even restoring it to its original position.

If your windows and doors are sticking above a crawl space, the fault may lie in the central post-and-beam support system rather than in the perimeter walls. This calls for a different repair strategy involving new posts and footings.

Tilting, Leaning Chimneys

One of the most alarming foundation issues a homeowner faces is a chimney that begins to tilt or lean away from the house.

The footing or foundation for a chimney is sometimes built separately from the house foundation. This smaller foundation is susceptible to shifting if it's built on soil with poor load-bearing capacity. Shifting and leaning can also occur if the chimney foundation is too small or too close to the surface.

Foundation helical piers can provide an effective repair solution -- without the need to rebuild the structure.
