Trust in Stable Foundations with Your Foundation Repair
Your home is one of your biggest investments. It’s where you and your family make memories and feel safe and protected. At Stable Foundations, we know what it takes to repair your foundation to restore your home’s structural stability and provide the ultimate protection for your family.
What Causes Foundation Damage?
There are a lot of different factors that can result in foundation damage. Whether you live more inland or closer toward the shoreline, Virginia soils vary across the state, and our team at Stable Foundations knows how to deal with these soils when it comes to foundation repair.
Hydrostatic pressure is a big problem that affects a lot of homes and is a common reason why homeowners seek foundation repair. As water saturates the ground and has no place else to go, it pushes against your foundation and puts pressure against your walls.
Shrink Swell Soil
Certain types of soil in the ground can shrink or expand from extreme weather conditions. This constant shrinking and expanding causes the soils to shift and become displaced. Since your foundation is no longer supported by the original soils when your house was built, this shrinking and expanding of these soils can cause settlement and require you to seek foundation repair.
Water Leaks Under Foundation
A sewer leak or burst pipe can cause water to leak into the soil underneath your foundation and cause major damage. If you have any cracks in your foundation walls or concrete slabs, that leaking water can easily make its way into your basement and cause even more extensive damage.
Symptoms of Foundation Damage
Foundation damage can appear in many different forms, with some easier to spot than others. As a homeowner, it’s important to know the basic signs of foundation damage and when to call in the experts for foundation repair.
- Sticking Doors and Windows
- Wall Cracks
- Bowing Walls
- Tilting Chimney
- Uneven Floors or Floor Cracks
Foundation Repair Solutions From Stable
Our team at Stable Foundations knows how important it is for your family to feel safe and protected in your home, which is why we offer top-of-the-line foundation repair products.
Helical Pier Foundation System
At Stable Foundations, we use the Helical Pier Foundation System for foundation repair. This system is used for foundation underpinning in undisturbed soils, creating much more stability.
Benefits of our Helical Pier System include:
- Quick installations in limited access areas
- No heavy equipment required
- Lower cost for repair
- Time-proven engineered system with certified installers
- Limited excavation
Our Helical Pier System also comes with a transferable Limited Lifetime Warranty, so you’ll always be protected.
In order to provide complete stability, the helical piles are drilled deep into the ground until stable subsoil strata is reached. This is a very important step as we want to drill deep enough until we reach soils that are strong enough to support the pier.
We monitor the torque that has been applied to determine when the required load capacity has been achieved.
Our team then attaches adjustable brackets to the base of your foundation footers, which connect the piles to your foundation.
The weight of your home is then transferred to the piles. During this process, your home’s foundation is repositioned and to prevent further movement.
Benefits of Foundation Repair
Foundation repair can seem overwhelming to a homeowner, but it’s best to get the problem fixed early before it becomes worse and potentially more expensive.
Benefits of foundation repair include:
- Prevent more expensive issues from occurring
- Increase home value
- Restore structural integrity
- Improve home safety
