Foundation Repair Services

A strong foundation is paramount to the stability of your home or business. When weakened it not only puts the structure at risk but also poses a threat to those who are in it. Some signs that indicate your establishment may need foundational repair include bowing basement walls, visible wall cracks, sinking foundations, and settling concrete slabs. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to take immediate action to prevent long-term damage to the building.

Our team of experts has the skills and expertise to fix these problems and ensure the safety of your home or business. We not only repair the damages but have a trustworthy system in place to prevent future damage so you can have confidence in your foundation for years to come. Some of the repair tactics we use for bowing walls are installing wall anchors or carbon fiber over walls to prevent the spread of cracks. For a sinking foundation, we can use a foundation piering system to raise the home to its original position.

Mold remediation

Bowed Walls

If you have basement walls that are bowing inward, this can be a very serious problem. Over time they can bow so much that they no long provide structural support for your home and can cause a catastrophic foundation failure. We can repair the walls by installing wall anchors which can pull the wall back to its original position and prevent it from bowing any more.

Mold remediation

Wall Cracks

Whether you have long horizontal wall cracks or tall vertical cracks in your basement walls, they are definitely a problem. Sometimes these cracks will be leaking, other times they are just indicators of a problem. We will repair these cracks with ultra-strong carbon fiber strips that are bonded to the concrete and attached to the footer and header to prevent future expansion.

Mold remediation


A sinking foundation is always a problem. It can cause a combination of large cracks and visible damage as well as pressure on the structure which will be noticeable when doors and windows stick when opening or closing. These are repaired using foundation piers that are attached to the footer and driven down to sturdy bedrock to permanently lift your building back into place.

Case Study: City of Harper, Kansas Historic Water Standpipe Foundation Stabilization Project

The 125-foot tall and 135,000-gallon standpipe was constructed in 1887 and has been in continuous operation since 1907. The original foundation base is limestone. In the early 1900’s the limestone base was encased in concrete.

Since 2013 the city had been monitoring the rate of deterioration of the foundation in its current state. While no major shifts have occurred, there were signs of the exterior concrete deteriorating.

Lamunyon Dry Out and Foundation Repair was called in to provide a solution. Lamunyon recommended wrapping the concrete base in two layers of 24-inch-wide carbon fiber straps, a horizontal layer followed by a vertical layer, stabilizing the historic structure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Foundation repair involves repairing structural issues with a building’s foundation, which supports its entire structure. These measures include crack repairs, and stabilizing and/or lifting the structure if necessary.

A foundation repair usually consists of the following aspects:

  1. Assessment: Identifying the cause and extent of damage and taking the appropriate action based on the findings.
  2. Repair work: A repair job may involve filling in cracks, stabilizing sinking or shifting foundations, or installing support systems like piers or braces.
  3. Drainage solutions: In cases where excess moisture is the cause of the problem, installing a drain tile system with sump pump on the interior or exterior can help prevent further damage.
  4. Structural reinforcement: Prevent future settlement or shifting by adding additional support.

In foundation repair projects, methods depend on the foundation type, the damage extent, and the cause.

Several factors can affect the length of time a foundation repair project takes, including:

  1. Extent of damage: There may be a delay in the repair work if the damage to the property is extensive
  2. Type of repair work: Different types of repair work take different amounts of time. 
  3. Weather conditions: Weather conditions can affect the repair work schedule, particularly if it requires outdoor work.
  4. Accessibility: Accessing and repairing a foundation may take longer if it is in a difficult-to-reach location.

Many factors influence how long it takes for a foundation to be repaired. The best way to get an accurate foundation repair estimate is to consult a foundation repair specialist.

In general, there is no one-size-fits-all solution since the best repair method depends on elements like foundation type, damage extent, damage caused, and budget.

For example, piering is often the best solution when the foundation settles, in order to prevent further damage.  If bad drainage is causing the problem, you may need to install a proper drainage system. 

When it comes to foundation repair, you should consult with an expert. The expert will assess the damage, consider all relevant factors, and make a recommendation based on your needs.

In most cases, foundation repair involves the following steps:

  1. Assessment: The foundation specialist will assess the damages and determine the cause after thoroughly examining the foundation.
  2. Repair work: Repairs may involve filling cracks, stabilizing settling foundations by installing support systems, such as piers and braces, depending on the issues.
  3. Drainage solutions: In cases where moisture is causing the problem, using a professionally installed drain system will prevent further damage.
  4. Structural reinforcement: Providing additional support for the foundation to prevent future settlement.

After a foundation is repaired, it must be monitored and maintained if necessary.

Repairing foundations incorrectly can cause additional damage. The excavation around the foundation and removal of soil can cause instability. A support system that is not properly installed, such as piers or braces, can also cause additional damage.

Furthermore, some repair techniques, such as chemical grouting, could damage surrounding structures if not performed properly.

Choose an experienced and reputable foundation repair specialist with a proven track record of successful repairs with an extended warranty on their performed service.

Normal wear and tear and settling damage to the foundation are not covered by homeowners’ insurance. Insurance policies may cover damage caused by events such as sinkholes or severe weather.

Understand what type of damage your insurance policy covers by reviewing your policy. Insurers will be able to assist you if the damage is covered. An inspection and estimate may be required if the insurance company approves a claim.

A properly permitted city and engineer-certified plan are essential to foundation repairs. City authorities can step in anytime and stop your project without a permit. Failure to obtain a license can also result in a fine. For foundation repair, non-compliance can result in fines, derailing your project unnecessarily.

First of all, check to see how long they have been in business. You are looking for longevity in business, not a new start-up or simply a sideline or add on to their main business.

Is this company part of a network of foundation repair companies that provide support? Do they believe in regular education for all their employees and demonstrate that belief in practice?

Read their reviews and speak with your neighbors. Who have they used? Who would they recommend? Who would they not recommend and why not?

What kind of warranties do the company offer? Do they offer life-time warranties? Do they stand behind their warranty? Ask for real-life examples of warranties they have backed up or honored.
