The soil around foundations is like a sponge; expanding when wet and contracting when dry. In Minnesota, many basements are built with block walls, and many of them tend to crack horizontally due to this constant movement of the soil.
Complete Basement Systems offers the PowerBrace I-Beam System to securely stabilize block walls and in some cases even counter the effects of the soil movement, restoring the walls to their original position.
Foundation settlement problems, also quite prevalent in MN, can be fixed with foundation underpinning. The company offers both helical and push piers which, when driven into the ground to a load bearing strata and anchored to the foundation, will stabilize the structure and in most cases lift it back up.
Foundation problems always get worse overtime. Don't let a small foundation crack turn into a structural failure nightmare. Call us or visit our website for a free inspection and estimate.
