Foundation Repair Services in Erie, PA

foundation repair

A well-designed and maintained foundation adds lots of advantages to a house. It holds it above the ground and also keeps cold air and moisture out. During the construction of a foundation, the contractors often consider the location and the quality of the soil to make sure they can provide a durable foundation. 

However, sometimes things happen, and foundations begin having problems. These will need repair. Here are some of the prevalent foundation problems and the ways to repair them. 

Foundation Cracks

One of the signs of big foundation problems is foundation cracks. There are three types of foundation cracks that are consistent in western New York and areas around the region. 

Vertical Cracks  

Vertical cracks take a slightly diagonal shape. Their main reason for occurrence is tension in the concrete of the house. Rainwater pressure on the foundation can also cause vertical cracks.

Diagonal Cracks

Diagonal cracks take a sharper angle from the ground and are pretty dangerous. They arise due to differential concrete settlements in the foundation. These cracks are prevalent in hilly places. Repairing diagonal foundation cracks is quite costly.

Horizontal Cracks

These indicate a severe problem in the house structure. It could mean that your house’s foundation cannot support the large structure above it.

Foundation Sinking and Settling

Another common foundation problem is sinking and settling. You may realize that one side of your house seems to be a little higher than the other. If this occurs, your home requires lifting to balance. 

Foundation Upheaval

This is when the foundation appears to be rising upwards. You may start experiencing hardship when opening or closing doors. It could be a sign that the floor is moving up in those areas. 

CAUSES OF FOUNDATION REPAIR

These are some of the most common causes of foundation issues.


Soil: The type of soil is one of the most popular reasons for foundation problems. Some types of soil tend to absorb water and expand, then shrink after losing water. The ground causes tension to the foundation.


Poor Drainage: The drainage of an area can also cause foundation troubles. Improper water drainage can cause soil erosion, leaving gaps around the foundation.


Sinkhole Formations: Sinkholes are another issue causing foundation problems.


Poor Construction: If the contractors don’t do an adequate job building the house from the foundation, your home will, after some time, face foundation issues.

Types of Foundation Crack Repairs

After noticing the signs in your house, you need to start immediate repairs. What types of repairs are available today? Here are the most popular types used in New York.

Slab Jacking

Slab jacking involves pumping grout beneath the slab to lift the foundation to the proper elevation. It’s the most popular way of solving more minor foundation problems.

Underpinning 

Underpinning involves driving steel posts through the soil and using jacks to raise the affected slabs. You place mechanical jacks to help elevate the open beam. Underpinning needs serious care since any wrong moves could lead to further damage to the area. 

Stabilizing Foundation Soil

This is a process where you harden the weak soil around the foundation. It involves injecting a stabilizer into the soil at the proper depth. 

Water Management

Water management is a way to control a drainage problem. You need to ensure there is proper drainage around the foundation. 

Foundation Wall Repair

Foundation wall repairs involve fixing any cracks on the foundation walls. Before fixing the cracks, it’s essential to stabilize the house.
