Types of Foundation Repairs
Underpinning is one of the more popular methods of sinkhole repair. The weight of your home is lifted on special piers known as “Underpins”. These underpins are inserted deep below the earth until they hit solid ground. This underpinning method strengthens an existing structure’s foundation.
Underpinning may be accomplished by extending the foundation in depth or breadth so it either rests on a more supportive soil stratum or distributes its load across a greater area. This underpinning method is generally applied when the existing foundation is at a shallow depth, but works well up to fifty feet deep.
Helical piers are like a giant screws inserted vertically into the ground to a depth where the soil layer is stable enough to support the structure. They literally lift the home back to its original position and prevent any further settlement from happening.
Installation causes minimal disruption to the homeowner. Cracks in the foundation of the home or building will close. Windows and doors should be easier to operate properly again.
Installing helical piers is an efficient, quick way to bring your property back to its full value–a plus in today’s real estate market.
Grout Injection Piers
Grout Injected Piers are a combination of two different methods of sinkhole and foundation repair. Grout Injected Piers are large diameter, perforated, steel pins that are installed beneath your home until competent limestone, or solid bedrock is reached.
Then grout is pumped in to seal off the limestone layer.
This is the most common form of sinkhole repair. A low slump grout is used in areas with sinkhole conditions. It is injected into soils at or above the limestone layer to seal collapsed limestone, fill voids and compact loose soils.
Grouting is the best method to repair homes that have loose soil.
This grouting method is sometimes recommended by engineers to stabilize shallow soils around the perimeter and near the surface of your home following Compaction Grouting or Foundation Underpinning.
The chemical will expand after being injected and firm up all loose soils that may be causing cracks and damage to your home.

10 signs your home needs foundation repair
1. There are cracks in the drywall.
Cracks can form in your drywall for many different reasons. If you live in a high humidity location, the moisture can cause cracks in your walls over time. Water damage from your roof can also cause cracks in the walls. But if your gutter systems are in great shape, your attic insulation is fine, and humidity is not an issue, these cracks could mean your foundation’s uneven.
2. There are cracks in your exterior walls.
Although drywall cracks are a common symptom of different house ailments, cracks in your exterior walls are almost always a foundation issue. Your brick siding can become uneven as the soil shifts under the house and the home adjusts.
3. There are a lot of bugs in your house.
Every homeowner has to deal with their fair share of pests every so often. But if your home seems to have a strangely high number of bugs, it could be a sign that there are cracks in your foundation. Centipedes, pill bugs, earwigs, carpenter ants, and roaches are drawn to moist areas and will usually make their way into your house through foundation cracks.
4. Your floors are uneven or sagging.
As your foundation shifts, so will your floors. You might notice that you could easily send a ball rolling down your living room floor or there are soft spots in your flooring. Inadequate foundation waterproofing can cause water to creep in and warp your floors.
5. Your doors and windows are sticking.
Sticky doors and windows can sometimes be caused by humidity. The wood in the door or windows expands with the moisture, making it harder for them to work properly. But if there isn’t any humidity in your area and your doors and windows are consistently sticking for no apparent reason, it could be that your foundation is shifting. This happens because, as the foundation moves, the door or window frame will also twist out of balance.
6. There are cracks above your windows.
Going off of the point above, when your window and door frames twist out of balance as your foundation shifts, this can cause cracks in the frames.
7. There’s moisture in your crawl space or basement.
Some homes that have foundation issues will have moisture in their crawl spaces or a wet, leaking basement. The moisture gets in through foundational cracks and can cause musty smells, mold growth, uneven floors, and sagging floorboards.
8. You have bowing walls.
Untreated cracks in your walls can sometimes lead to bowing. Bowed walls happen because of the soil movement under the foundation. The soil movement causes hydrostatic pressure and poor water drainage. This causes moisture buildup and pressure to bow your walls so they look like they’re folding in.
9. Your walls are separating from your house.
Wall separation can sometimes be caused by bowing, but not necessarily. As the soil moves and your floors shift, the walls on your house will start to separate from the roof and the rest of the structure.
10. There’s space between the wall and ceiling or floor.
Speaking of wall separation, another way you can tell there are foundational issues is when there’s space between your wall and the ceiling or your wall and the floor. This is usually a warning sign that wall separation is beginning to happen.
