This home in East Haven, CT had a series of structural problems. The foundation was slowly sinking, causing cracks on foundation walls and unleveled floors. To make matters worse, expanding soils around the foundation were not only causing the retaining walls outside to cave in, but the basement walls also began to bow.
To solve these problems the foundation repair experts at Connecticut Basement Systems suggested a combination of two different foundation repair technologies.
To raise and stabilize the foundation, they removed the retaining wall, dug around the foundation and push piers were installed underneath the footing. Tiebacks or wall anchors were then installed to straight up the bowing foundation walls. In about three days, Connecticut Basement Systems not only stabilized this home's foundation, but restored its structural integrity, raised it back to its original position, and fixed the retaining wall. They also left the job site clean and tidy, ready for some landscaping in the following spring.
Foundation cracks don't go away on their own if left untreated, they only get worse. And the more you wait to fix them, the more expensive is the solution. Don't wait! Call Connecticut Basement Systems for you Free Foundation Inspection Today!
