Types of Foundation Repair
Methods for residential foundation repair in Kansas City, MO depend on the condition of the property, the soil, and other variables, but there are a few common solutions. One is piering, which involves driving long metal shafts underground, anchoring them in solid soil or rock, and attaching them to your foundation to secure the support it needs. You may need different types of piers depending on the location of your home and the type of soil beneath it.
In Kansas City, MO, wall reinforcement is another common repair method. Depending on the problem, we may use our patented Wall Reinforcement System, traditional anchors, or a plate anchor wall system. These approaches all work to straighten bowing basement walls and strengthen your foundation against the hydrostatic pressure that causes cracking and bowing.
