In Greenwood, MO, the soil beneath your home is often responsible for foundation-related problems. Some soils are more sensitive or reactive than others, and clay soil, in particular, is susceptible to shrinking and shifting depending on the abundance or lack of precipitation in the area. Soil quality and compaction are critical components in ensuring the structural integrity of a newly constructed home, and some Greenwood homeowners experience foundation failure resulting from the neglect of clay soil beneath their homes.
To avoid the costs and trouble associated with foundation failure, be on the lookout for the most common indicators of structural problems, including:

For homeowners opting to invest in an interior waterproofing system, we redirect water away from the foundation with the installation of a perforated drain pipe connected to our energy-efficient sump pumps.
For extra protection, our exterior waterproofing system eliminates the potential for water to collect around your foundation with the incorporation of a weather-resistant drain pipe.
Pro Foundation Technology uses the method of polyjacking to lift and level your concrete back to its original level. This method of concrete repair uses a polyurethane foam that is injected through a small 5/8″ hole that is drilled through the affected concrete. Once injected, the polyurethane foam expands to over 20 times its liquid volume to fill the voids, strengthen the soil, and seal the cracks. Since polyurethane foam has a quick drying time, the concrete can be used immediately after the repair is completed. Your concrete will be back to its original level with little disruption.
