The existing expansion joint between the driveway and garage is fully compressed.
Even when the joint appears wide enough at the surface, the concrete may still be in contact underneath. This means that when the street expands with heat, your driveway is being pushed into the rest of your home.
The foundation walls on either side of the garage door are being pushed inwards by the driveway slab.
This is a sign that when the concrete pavement expanded and lengthened, pushing into the concrete driveway, there was insufficient compression space within the expansion joints. The only place for the driveway slab to go was through your garage walls.
Gaps have formed behind the foundation walls on either side of the garage door as the garage slab is pushed rearward.
Installing new expansion joints in the driveway and installing wall anchors will restore your foundation walls to structural stability.
Basement walls or foundation walls are pushed out by the garage slab.
At this stage, the damage caused by street creep has lead to a potentially serious foundation issue. It's important to address this soon -- before the damage becomes any more significant.
Wall anchors are the most versatile wall repair method available because they can be used to stabilize a variety of wall problems such as bowing walls, walls that are tipping in at the top, and walls that are pushing in at the bottom. Wall anchors are installed independently of the floor systems of a home.
The Supportworks Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchor System permanently stabilizes basement and retaining walls and offers the best opportunity to straighten walls over time without the cost and disruption of foundation replacement.
Thanks to threaded rods that extend through the wall, wall anchors can counteract soil pressure by anchoring walls to stable, undisturbed soil outside your home.
When homeowners don't have access on the outside of their home for anchor wall repair systems, we recommend repairing your foundation walls with our patented PowerBrace™ Wall Repair System.
Heavy-duty, zinc-plated steel beams are custom-fit to your basement wall height. The PowerBrace™ is an adjustable steel I-beam system with two important benefits: stabilizing bowed or tilting walls, and (over time) forcing bowed or tilting wall sections back to their original position. The patented PowerBrace™ System from Supportworks effectively stabilizes your basement walls, in turn protecting your largest investment, your home.
Often times foundation settlement is the result of changes in moisture content and density of the soils beneath the foundation. When soils are unable to bear the load of the structure on top of it, the floors crack resulting in tripping hazards and other cracking and settling throughout the home or building.
Our piers are driven or advanced deep into the fround, past any troubled soil, so that your slab is supported by a strong, competent material. Both types of slab piers provide an opportunity to lift your concrete slab back to its original position, often-times closing cracks and eliminating trip hazards!
