Is your home’s foundation in distress? Foundation problems can cause significant structural damage within your home if not repaired. While we all love a little DIY challenge, foundation repair is complex. You can’t fix it on your own. The average homeowner lacks the right tools and expertise of deep-seated issues. And that’s ok.
This type of repair is better left to professional foundation technicians with the right mix of skills and experience. Our team at Indiana Foundation Service knows the best solution to your unique foundation problem and can help you restore and prolong its life.
Once we inspect your foundation, we may apply any of these products to your foundation repair in Indianapolis, IN.
Wall anchors are fantastic for fixing and stabilizing bowing, cracking, and leaning foundation walls. These heavy-duty earth anchors are firmly implanted in stable soil away from the foundation wall then connected to durable steel wall plates, which brace the foundation walls by redirecting pressure against your walls to the soil outside your home.
Once in place, the anchors prevent inward movement and wall damage. But the major benefit is they can move your foundation walls to their original positions.
IntelliBrace™ Beam System
This system strengthens your foundation by stabilizing bowing or tilting walls. Because they are adjustable, they can also help restore your walls to their original positions. The good thing about the IntelliBrace™ system is it works well in places where installing wall anchors would be a problem.
Carbon Fiber Wall System
If you want to rehabilitate your cracking walls that are not severely damaged or moving, consider Carbon Fiber Wall Repair. This is a state-of-the-art wall repair system that curtails the inward movement of walls. It usually combines the carbon fiber straps with structural epoxy to create strength and subtle appearance. This product is recommended for less severe bowing walls, especially if you don’t want to use I-beams.
IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jacks
When your floors start sagging or become bouncy, contractors turn to the IntelliJack™ system to arrest the situation. This system is designed to stabilize and potentially level beam and floor joists that cause your floors to sag. Areas with sagging floors above the crawl space can be secured and even lifted to their original levels within no time.
Our push piers are installed into bedrock, the most stable soil level. From there, they can support your settling foundation. Other than stabilizing your home, push piers also can help lift your home back to its original level.
Helical piers work best for interior slab repairs and external foundation repair. These piers work best in light-loaded areas within the home like the porches or structures with vinyl siding. They can be used for both new constructions and as a repair method.
Slab piers are mostly used for homes with a sunken concrete slab foundation. These piers are installed into a deep stable soil to stabilize and even level your home. They also help to lift the concrete slab and interior walls. Slab piers also take less time to install and cause less disturbance to the landscape than traditional concrete piers.
Sinking concrete slabs are bad news for your home. Not only do they cause uneven floors, but unsightly ones as well. Mudjacking has always been the conventional solution to this problem. A better alternative to this invasive procedure is the PolyRenewal™ system. Here, the contractor drills small holes into the slab, then injects polyurethane foam, which expands to fill the void before hardening. This solution lifts your slab up to its original level. If you’re looking for an affordable and hassle-free way to raise your settling concrete slab, concrete lifting beats them all.
A foundation repair is not something to put off as it could result in serious damage. If you suspect there’s a concern with your foundation, schedule a free foundation repair inspection with the professionals at Indiana Foundation Service to determine which solution works best for you.
