Foundation Repair Services in Lincoln

When your home has foundation problems, the signs can be seen from the top of the chimney to the basement floor. And the longer you wait, the worse the symptoms are likely to get. The only thing that will stop it is foundation repair.

Homes and buildings may appear solid, so it may be difficult to imagine them cracking and shifting unless there is an earthquake. In fact, foundation settlement is a common and major cause of structural problems. Fortunately, there are ways to fix a settling foundation without having to replace it.

Whether your Lincoln home or business is facing a settling foundation or a bowing basement or foundation wall, Jerry's Waterproofing has solutions that can give your home's foundation the stability that it needs.

Signs Your Lincoln Home Needs Foundation Repair

If your home's foundation isn't exposed, you may wonder how you can know if your foundation needs repair. The simple answer is, the signs of foundation problems don't stop at the foundation.

Does your home have cracks in the walls, floor or ceiling? Are your walls or chimney leaning? Are your doors or windows misaligned or have your stairs started pulling away from your stoop?

How many of those problems sound familiar? The foundation of your home is crucial to its stability. If it is damaged, your home is subject to many issues, ranging from water damage to mold exposure, and more. That is why it is important to discover the cause of your foundation's problems and have them repaired.

Foundation Repair Solutions for Lincoln

When fixing a foundation, it is important that your contractor uses the right tools for your job rather than employing a one-size-fits-all approach. Thankfully, through our partnership with Earth Contact Products we are experienced installers of a variety of top-quality foundation repair products built using American-made steel.

Many foundation issues fall into two general categories. The first is a settling, shifting foundation that needs to be supported from below. The second is bowing or buckling basement walls that must be supported laterally.

At Jerry's Waterproofing, we have multiple solutions for both.

Foundation Underpinning

When the soil beneath your home has weakened and it is wreaking havoc on your foundation, you must find something stable enough to support your house.

If that soil is far below the surface, then you must find a way to use that load-bearing strata of soil to support your foundation.

With piering, steel piers are sunk beneath the surface of your home until they reach strong, stable soil — or bedrock if need be. They are then attached with brackets to your home's foundation, leveling it and providing the strength needed to prevent future foundation issues.

There are two main types of foundation piers:

Fixing Bowing Walls

If your basement walls begin to buckle and crack, it is a serious issue for the stability of your home as a whole. And just as with foundation problems beneath your home, they require providing the walls with additional support.

That is where plate anchors and helical tiebacks come into play. Plate anchors press the wall back to its original alignment. Tiebacks act as a type of horizontal piering system, with the tiebacks, parts of which resemble large screws drilling out into the soil, with their helical plates helping to counteract the forces causing the walls to bow in the first place.
