Using a laser level to diagnose structural foundation problems.

Using a laser level to diagnose structural foundation problems.

There are a number of contributing factors that lead to a foundation problem.  They include poor and inadequate drainage, plumbing leaks, extremely dry soil and poor soil conditions. 

U.S. Waterproofing is the recognized leader in the basement waterproofing and foundation repair industry. Over the past 55 years, we’ve helped over 300,000 customers achieve their goal of a dry basement and a stable and secure foundation.

Structural repair issues are often very complicated and require specialized knowledge to both analyze and develop repair plans. U.S. Waterproofing has trained and certified a small team of specialists to advise our customers of their options. We use a highly skilled team of installers as well, separate from our waterproofing division, ensuring the highest quality workmanship.

A structural advisor will be sent to your home to assess your problem. They will come equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment to determine the amount of foundation movement that has occurred. If the foundation wall has shifted or bowed inward, we’ll recommend Carbon Fiber Wall Reinforcement a Wall Bracing System to restrain and stabilize the wall to prevent further inward movement. If it is determined the foundation has dropped, we’ll recommend a Foundation Underpinning System to prevent further vertical settlement. This analysis is free and without obligation on your part.

If left unattended, structural problems will continue to get worse, leading to more costly corrective repairs and diminished resale value of your home. Your home is likely your largest and most valuable investment. Don’t let the problem linger another day. Call our office at 888-733-7243 to schedule a free consultation and estimate.
