Foundation Settlement Repair

Your home or business’s foundation needs to stand on soil that is compacted properly in order to avoid settling in the ground. When this happens, it causes stress and strain on the foundation which can lead to cracks and extensive damage.

Ignoring these signs puts the safety of those in the building at risk, and can cause more costly damages in the future. Our team is well trained in the use of foundation repair techniques and materials and are ready 24/7 to respond to your emergency repair needs.

Some telltale signs that you may need foundation settlement repair are:

  • Tilting chimneys
  • Cracks around doors and windows
  • Jammed doors and windows
  • Cracks in a concrete slab floor
    Cracks in drywall

Foundation Piering

To repair the settlement problem, we install a series of push piers under the sinking foundation. These piers are attached to the slab of your building and driven down to sturdy bedrock. This allows the piers to lift and stabilize the building by transferring the weight onto the piers and off of the loose soil, preventing any future settlement problems.

The pier installation process consists of the following steps:

  1. We begin the process by excavating around the footing area.
  2. We remove a section of footing where the pier support will go.
  3. We position the bracket for the piers.
  4. We insert the piers through the bracket until we reach stable soil or bedrock.
  5. We set up the lift cylinders so we can evenly lift the house all at once.
  6. We lift the house, checking alignment and leveling continuously.
  7. We tighten all the brackets and the building is now level.

The piering process is both safe and effective. Our team is trained regularly to ensure they are properly loading the building onto the piers, this will help ensure everything is done to correctly repair your sinking foundation.

If you have any type of sinking or settling foundation issues or you see cracks forming on your foundation, do not hesitate to contact us and have the professionals at Lamunyon evaluate your project and provide you with the best solution.

Bowed wall in TECUMSEH, KS

I was very impressed with the two people who repaired the wall. They did it in just a few hours. They left no mess outside or inside. They actually left the area cleaner than it was when they started.

Foundation Repair in LIBERTY, MO

Jonathan's team did an amazing job. I keep hearing that American's are lazy and don't know the meaning of hard work. That's crap. These guys busted their rear ends working until after 7 pm on a Friday night to make sure the job got finished. They were very polite and professional and I can finally sleep at night knowing my basement wall will not be caving in. It was bad but now looks more than stable.
