Foundation Repair in Lafayette, IN
Every single thing in your home depends on the foundation, either directly or indirectly. If your foundation becomes damaged, it obviously has an inverse effect on the walls, floors, and ceilings of your home. But when these structures break down, it causes furniture to tilt and makes it harder to move around your home.
Indiana Foundation Service specializes in foundation repair, and we’ve been helping homeowners in Lafayette, IN, and across Indiana since 1993. We understand that protecting your home is among your biggest priorities, so read on to learn more about our foundation repair services.

Foundation Problem Signs in Lafayette
If it’s even possible to say anything positive about foundation repair, it is that foundation problem signs are easy to spot. That’s because these signs of damage physically appear inside and outside your Lafayette home. Bowing walls, settlement and sinking, stuck doors and windows, wall cracks, and uneven floors are all signs that your foundation is damaged. You’ll notice most of these as soon as you walk in your front door. While no one wants to deal with foundation problems, their visibility is to your benefit, because it means you can act quickly and contact IFS to stop the damage from getting worse.
Foundation walls move inward primarily due to expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure on the walls from outside.
While there are many issues that can lead to sticking windows and doors, the two most common foundation-related causes are settlement and crawl space supports that have settled, shifted, or deteriorated.
If you have a crawl space and the floors above are out of level, you may have a structural problem in your crawl space.
Causes of Foundation Damage in Lafayette
Foundation damage is most often caused by weak soil and inclement weather. In fact, foundation damage is a huge possibility for Lafayette homeowners due to the region’s poorly draining clay soil and high amounts of rain and snow throughout the year (38 inches and 19 inches, respectively). When precipitation permeates clay soil in your yard, the ground expands beneath your foundation. This leads to foundation heave – when a concrete slab cracks as it is pushed upward. Tree roots can also cause problems for your foundation. When they grow, they may push against your foundation’s footing and put stress on all the walls of your home.
Expansive soils can have a seriously negative effect on your foundation, floors, and home overall. Check out what’s causing this soil issue on your property.
Soils are composed of different ingredients like sand, silt, loam and clay. These ingredients determine how soils behave under wet and dry conditions and when they need to support weight.
Foundation upheaval can lift an entire structure, but more often it forces parts of a foundation or slab upwards, while other sections remain stationary. Either way, the damage that results will require the expertise of a foundation repair specialist.
Foundation Repair Solutions in Lafayette
Repairing your foundation means protecting it from weak soil and wet weather. This is accomplished using different world-class foundation solutions from IFS. Pier systems – push piers, helical piers, and slab piers – support your foundation using deep, strong soils far below the surface. These deep soils are not affected by water or weather. We also use wall anchors, channel anchors, and crawl space supports for basements or crawl spaces in Lafayette. Our solutions come with long-term warranties for additional protection and are manufactured right here in the USA.
The IntelliJack™ system provides solid crawl space support posts for sagging and undersized beams, restoring stability and straightness to sagging floor joists in a crawl space.
Innovative product development undertaken by aerospace engineers and the U.S. Dept. of Defense is now being applied to the age-old problem of cracked and bowing foundation walls.
The Wall Anchor System permanently stabilizes your basement walls, offering the best opportunity to straighten the walls without the cost and disruption of foundation replacement.
