HOMES IN PA, NJ, & DE ARE HIGHLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO SINKING
In the Eastern PA / New Jersey / Delaware region, most homes are built on several soil layers. Hazardous foundation settlement happens when one of these layers of soil stops supporting the weight of the home. This type of foundation settlement, or sinking, can have dangerous consequences for the homeowner.
THIS PROBLEM GETS WORSE WHEN IT RAINS
Cracks and gaps, no matter how large or small, provide a perfect channel for water to enter. Water can enter multiple ways, too – from rain, to melting snow and high humidity levels. Once water enters your foundation, it can begin deteriorating the structural integrity of it very quickly. And there’s another problem: those cracks and gaps grow larger as water flows through. So even the smallest crack or gap can lead to major foundation and structural repair problems.
INDICATIONS OF STRUCTURAL DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME:
- Cracks in concrete or drywall
- Cracks or gaps around doors and windows
- Leaks in basement or crawl space
- A chimney that leans or tilts
- Windows and doors that jam or stick

TWO OF OUR MAIN STRUCTURAL & FOUNDATION PROCESSES
If You Have Cracks Running Horizontally on Your Foundation:
- We install super-strong carbon fiber straps to keep your foundation wall from bowing.
- These carbon fiber straps are up to 12 inches wide and are laid about 4 feet apart along your wall.
- These carbon fiber straps also get installed from the top to the bottom of your wall.
- We then coat the straps with an epoxy which creates a bond as strong as steel.
If You Have Cracks Running Horizontally on Your Cinder Block Foundation:
- We install wall pins inside your wall to keep your foundation wall from bowing.
- These wall pins are reinforced with rebar rods and are laid about 4 feet apart along your wall.
- These wall pins are filled solid with concrete and also get installed from the top to the bottom of your wall.
- We then trowel over the open pockets with a fortified cement mixture.
If You Have Cracks Running Vertically on Your Foundation:
- We apply carbon fiber stitching along all the cracks in your foundation wall.
- This carbon fiber stitching is 3 inches wide and extra durable.
- We coat the stitching with an epoxy, which prevents the cracks from expanding or getting larger.
