Many homeowners in Nebraska have seen foundation cracks on their walls inside or outside of the home. They can be caused from the natural curing and shrinking process involved with concrete, or their appearance could be an indication that there is a more serious structural problem happening in the
If our experts have determined that the cracks in your home are caused from foundation settlement, we can install foundation piers to prevent the problem from getting worse. Piers are installed in stable, load-bearing strata deep within the earth. The weight of the home is transferred off of the fragile foundation and onto the piers. Ultimately, this will help with pushing the home back up to the level where it needs to be. The piers also stabilize the foundation and prevent additional cracks from forming.
If the cracks exist because of too much hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home – you may notice bowed walls, too – then we can install wall anchors to fix the problem. Our anchors are able to strengthen and stabilize a wall so that it doesn’t lean anymore, and it will also prevent the hydrostatic pressure from doing any additional damage. The
anchors are set up deep within the earth, and a wall plate is installed on the damaged wall inside of the home. The two are joined together with a steel rod that can be tightened over time to help with counteracting the lateral pressure being applied to the wall from the soil surrounding the home.
