If your house is sinking, settling, buckling, doors aren’t opening properly, we have the engineering staff, we have the personnel and we have the trained professionals. They’ll come into your home and make everything right.
When one of our clients reaches out to us for a stress crack on the side of their house and they’ve had us out for tuck-pointing before, the masonry repair is a symptom of the actual problem. The problem is the house is usually shifting or buckling. So, you can hire us over and over again to fix the same issue or we can fix it the right way and actually take care of the problem, which is the foundation.
We have the ability to not only repair your wall, basement, foundation, but we also have the ability to rebuild it. In a lot of cases, the wall is to severely buckled or bowed, and there’s no other way that we can repair it. So instead of selling you something that’s going to be a small, short term solution, we’ll lift the house and remove the entire wall and rebuild the wall.
When it comes to the foundation of your home, it’s extremely scary and intimidating. Let the Pros at Brickworks come by, introduce themselves and meet you and take you through the process. Letting you completely understand and make the decision for yourself on what repair or rebuild needs to take place.
Foundation Repair Warning Signs
At Brickworks we recommend that all new homeowners should waterproof their basement.
Water damage is extremely common and, if left unchecked, can cause major problems for
you and your household. Unsurprisingly, an insufficient drainage system is often to blame
for substantial foundation repairs. In addition, the soil underneath your home or an
improperly laid foundation on a slope may also be to blame. With that in mind, here are a
few things to watch out for in regard to foundation repair:
- Cracks in the walls or floors (typically in the basement)
- Doors and windows sticking or not opening
- Door frame/window frame pulling separation from the brick
- Water in basement or crawl space
- Bowing floors
- Bowing Walls
- Sloping walls or floors
- Drywall cracking
- Nails pop out of the drywall
- Expansion joint separation
- Walls pulling away from the house
- Exterior Cracks
- Interior sheetrock cracks
