Common Causes of Foundation Problems in Missouri

St. Joseph, MO experiences many different types of weather conditions including hot, dry summers and snowy, cold winters. These changing weather conditions can wreak havoc on the foundations of homes and businesses. St. Joseph, MO also has expansive soil which means that when it gets wet it will expand and when it is dry, it will shrink. This constant shifting of the soil also causes foundations to shift and move. If the ground beneath your foundation shrinks and creates voids, your foundation will sink into the voids causing foundation failure.

Foundation Repair

We use underpinning products such as helical piers and steel push piers to get the foundation back to its original level and make the foundation structurally strong again. These piers are installed deep into the soil through the unstable layers until they reach a more solid soil layer. Then the entire structure is lifted, hydraulically, onto the piers to lift and stabilize it. All of the foundation repair products we use are manufactured by ECP (Earth Contact Products), the leader in the manufacturing of foundation products in the industry. You can be reassured that with our experienced team at Pro Foundation Technology and with the best products, your foundation will be structurally sound for many years to come.

The ECP sump pumps we use are the most energy-efficient, highest performing and longest lasting sump pumps on the market today.

Exterior waterproofing is the best waterproofing because it will eliminate water from getting close to the foundation. If your St. Joseph, MO home has a crawlspace rather than a basement, we can repair a wet crawlspace with crawlspace encapsulation which uses the best vapor barrier available, manufactured by ECP, to keep moisture out of the crawlspace.
