Below are some examples of work that we have done. You can see that before we repaired it, the basement walls were crumbling and falling, almost making the stairs inaccessible. Something needed to be done, and it was inevitable that the basement walls needed to be replaced. After our work was done, these homeowners had a sturdy foundation wall that would provide their home with stability and safety for many years to come!

Crumbling Foundation Walls

In this next series of pictures you will see the before and after shots of a crumbling foundation that we repaired. With failing foundation walls, it is important to ensure that the support is being properly distributed. If the wall continues to fall, the foundation will continue to lose support. Worse problems can form from crumbling foundation walls over time, so it is important to get them fixed immediately.

For repairing crumbling foundation walls, we first assess the damage that has taken place in order to create a plan of action. Then, we install temporary supports throughout the basement while we repair the damaged wall. Once the supports are stabilized, we begin to tear down the unsafe wall and build a new foundation wall to replace it. Once the new wall is settled and dry, your basement will be a safe and livable area.
