If you live in Sac County, Iowa, you need to be aware that your home’s foundation may be vulnerable to foundation problems. This is caused by the expansive soil in Sac County. When the expansive soil beneath your foundation gets wet, it will heave and when dry, it will shrink. As the soil continually shifts and moves, so does your foundation. Foundation problems will cause structural damage throughout the entire home.
It is important to know some of the signs of foundation failure. Some of the signs that you may have a foundation problem are:
If you see any of these signs, it is important to have a professional inspect your home. The experts at WCI Basement Repair will give you a free inspection and offer you the best foundation repair solution for your needs. The foundation of your home is the most important part of the home. It is important to get it repaired before total failure occurs.
WCI Basement Repair uses underpinning products such as helical piers and steel piers to stabilize the structure and get it back to its original level. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Then each pier is individually load tested. After testing, the entire weight of the structure is lifted on the piers using hydraulic jacks. Your home will be back to its original level and structurally sound again. Don’t let your foundation problems be ignored. Contact the experts at WCI.

WCI Basement Repair can come and inspect your basement and offer you the best waterproofing solution to fit your need. We can protect your home from unwanted water by installing an interior drainage system or exterior drainage system.
Our interior drainage system consists of installing a perforated drainage pipe along the interior footings of the basement. This pipe is then attached to the sump pump system that pumps the water away from the basement.
The exterior drainage system consists of a perforated pipe that is installed along the exterior footing of your home. This perforated pipe removes pooling water away from your foundation.
