Our Services for You
A damaged foundation, mainly caused by unstable soil, can be seen in a variety of ways around your property. Look for bowing walls, wall cracks, floor gaps, a tilting chimney, and nail pops throughout your home.
Once you notice these issues, reaching out for professional inspection and repair is crucial. Otherwise, the problems will fester and threaten the safety of your home and family.
To put your home back on solid ground and provide permanent protection, Indiana Foundation Service offers pier systems, wall braces, wall anchors, and crawl space supports.
Concrete structures around your property sustain damage in a similar manner. When underlying soil cannot support concrete slabs, the slabs crack and sink.
Uneven or sinking driveway, sidewalk, or pool deck slabs look unsightly, steal value from your home, and can cause tripping problems.
IFS lifts sunken slabs using PolyRenewal™. This industry-leading formula is waterproof, stabilizing the soil beneath without the threat of future washout. The polyurethane injections are eco-friendly, lightweight, and cure in just 15 minutes.
Basements are versatile, but their below-ground location makes them susceptible to moisture and other damage. Water leaks, flooding, mold, cracks, and efflorescence are all too common in Bloomington.
Don’t let problems go untreated that will turn your home into a health and safety hazard for your family.
IFS offers fully customizable solutions like interior perimeter drains, sump pumps, wall vapor barriers, and dehumidifiers. These products work together to intercept leaking water, remove it, and control humidity to keep your home dry for good.
Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation
Crawl spaces aren’t as common in Bloomington as basements, but they are just as prone to damage. If you notice elevated humidity, mold, sagging floors, and musty odors in your home, you may have crawl space damage on your hands.
Crawl spaces can be dangerous areas, so it’s not a good idea to venture inside to investigate or repair them on your own. Leave the heavy lifting to experienced pros with the right tools, training, and protective gear.
Our team at IFS will tailor repair solutions to meet your crawl space’s unique needs. These include a vapor barrier, thermal insulation, drainage, an energy-efficient dehumidifier, and more.

A damp, musty basement that suffers from occasional leaks is seen as the norm. While these issues are common, they are not normal or healthy for your home and family.
With the presence of water and humidity come other issues like mold growth, damaged belongings, structural instability, and more. These threaten the well-being of your loved ones and your entire house.
That’s why waterproofing your basement is essential. There are many repair methods, but the most effective include an interior drainage system, sump pump, wall vapor barrier, and dehumidifier. Working in tandem, these solutions keep water from infiltrating your home and prevent humidity from wreaking havoc.
If you’re an avid DIYer, lifting a settled concrete slab might seem like an exciting project. However, concrete lifting should be left to professionals, most importantly for safety, since concrete slabs are extremely heavy and require either special tools or multiple people to lift.
Concrete settles because the soil under it has become unstable. Professionals have the right tools and skills to repair slabs without disrupting the soil or the compromised slab.
Additionally, DIY methods are often temporary and fail to address the root cause. On the other hand, professional repairs like polyurethane injections support the underlying soil and effectively lift concrete slabs. They are also less invasive, longer lasting, quick curing, and can be used to restore various concrete areas around your property.
Water and humidity can wreak havoc on your crawl space and home, resulting in problems like mold, sagging floors, and pest infestations.
One way of protecting your crawl space is through crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation. The first step is to drain any existing water in the crawl space.
Then, an interior drainage system is placed around the interior crawl space perimeter to intercept any leaks or groundwater. This system helps prevent water from infiltrating further, and directs water to a sump pump for swift removal.
The crawl space is then encapsulated with a vapor barrier, insulated with thermal insulation panels, and further protected with a dehumidifier.
When your home sustains foundation damage, which is typically caused by unstable underlying soil, it often shows up throughout your home in many ways. These issues can co-occur with and lead to other types of home damage, such as in your basement or crawl space.
If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to have your home professionally inspected and repaired right away.
