Our Services for You
Signs of foundation damage physically appear inside and outside your home. Bowing walls, settlement and sinking, stuck doors and windows, wall cracks, and uneven floors are all signs that your foundation is damaged.
It’s important to contact local pros for an inspection and repairs as soon as you notice these issues. Otherwise, the damage worsens and threatens your home and family’s safety.
Our team at Indiana Foundation Service uses industry-leading solutions to repair your foundation. These include pier systems (push piers, helical piers, and slab piers), wall anchors, wall braces, carbon fiber straps, and crawl space supports. Each provides permanent foundation support and protection.
Water is a powerful force that can significantly damage your basement, whether it comes from a leaking water heater, cracked and leaking walls, or other sources.
Moisture in your basement spawns other problems such as musty odors, mold, flooding, ruined possessions, and other damage, none of which is safe or healthy for your home or your family.
IFS has solutions designed to keep water out for good. Our interior drainage system catches leaking water and directs it to a sump pump, which quickly removes it. We also offer other moisture management solutions like a wall vapor barrier and an energy-efficient dehumidifier.
Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation
Because of their design and open vents, crawl spaces are prone to dampness, leaking water, mold, wood rot, and other issues. Not only do they impact your crawl space, but they are detrimental to your foundation, the rest of your home, and your loved ones.
It’s easy for these problems to go unnoticed, but with prompt attention and repair, your home will have the long-term protection it deserves. IFS has industry-leading solutions that fully seal and condition your crawl space including vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, sump pumps, crawl space drains, and thermal insulation.
Concrete is used all over your property, from your driveway and sidewalk to exterior steps and interior slab floor. While it is strong, it, too, can suffer damage at the hands of underlying soil.
The concrete slabs will crack and become uneven without proper support, which leads to unsightly tripping hazards around your home.
IFS has an innovative solution that lifts concrete back into place: PolyRenewal™. This polyurethane solution supports your concrete and the soil below. It is lightweight, waterproof, and cures in just 15 minutes.
Find Your Service Area
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.
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.
Many people automatically associate pink fluffy rolls with insulation. This fiberglass material is the most commonly used type of insulation throughout homes, but it does not belong everywhere, namely in the crawl space.
Crawl spaces are typically damp, and water can easily infiltrate fiberglass, lead to mold growth, harbor pests, and render the insulation ineffective.
To stand up to crawl space challenges, the best choice is thermal insulation boards made of expanded polystyrene. Our ExTremeBloc™ crawl space insulation does just that. It’s also waterproof and pest-resistant.
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.
