Foundation Repair in Amherst, VA
When you have problems with the structural integrity of your home, it's not a problem that you should take lightly. Whenever you notice a problem, you need to contact a foundation specialist immediately so that they can pinpoint the cause of the problem and get it fixed for you. Often times, regardless of how well a home is built, it can experience problems due to shifting soil or from concrete shrinkage. This can cause everything from foundation settlement to bowed and leaning basement walls. Also, wall and floor cracks could also form in your basement. Choose to ignore them and they will likely start to leak.

Foundation Crack Repair
Cracks on the walls and floors can appear in a variety of sizes and patterns. They are often developed in stair-step, vertical, or horizontal patterns. Our team will fill the cracks with a special epoxy material. We will clean the surface of the crack, and then fill it up from the soil to the surface. This epoxy injection technique has proven itself to be effective again and again. It will seal the crack and stop water from ever getting into your home. Once dry, the crack and epoxy can be painted over if need be.
