In Kansas City, MO, summers are getting hotter and drier. Winter months are getting more snow than in the past. Because the soil in Kansas City consists of clay and expansive soil, the foundation of your home may experience foundation failure or settlement. This expansive soil expands when it gets wet. It shrinks during hot, dry weather. This constant movement of the soil can also cause your foundation to move. The shrinking of the soil beneath your foundation does not happen uniformly beneath the foundation, so the foundation moves and settles at different rates. It is important to have a professional come and inspect your home if you suspect foundation failure and water problems. Look around your Kansas City home and look for some of the signs that you need our services. Some of these signs common to Missouri include sloping floors, wall cracks, bowing walls, ceiling cracks, and sticking doors/windows.
If you notice signs of foundation problems, we have the solutions to get your foundation back to its original level and structurally sound. We use underpinning methods to get your home stabilized and provide crawlspace repair. We use only the best products made for underpinning, manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP). These products include helical piers and steel push piers. Both of these types of piers are driven deep into the soil until they reach load-bearing soil then the structure is lifted onto the piers, stabilizing the structure.
We also offer new construction piers that stop foundation failure and settlement before it can even begin. Providing foundations with additional support before the concrete is poured gives the structure additional reinforcement.
