FOUNDATION REPAIR IN GIBSONIA, PA
The weather in Gibsonia, PA can be extreme. The summer can be hot and humid, heavy rains in the spring and summer, and cold, snowy winters. These changing weather conditions can damage the foundation of your home. When the soil beneath the foundation gets to wet, it will heave and when it becomes too dry, it will shrink. This shifting of the soil will also cause the foundation to shift and move. When the foundation becomes damaged, there will be damage throughout the entire home. Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services has the tools and expertise to help with foundation and waterproofing repairs in Gibsonia, PA.
It is important to know some of the signs of foundation settlement. Some of these signs are:
- Wall cracks
- Ceiling cracks
- Floor cracks
- Sloping floors
- Bowing or leaning walls
- Leaning chimney
- Doors and windows that stick
- Garage column cracks
If you see any of these signs, contact the professionals at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services for a free inspection. We will inspect your home and recommend the best foundation repair solution to fit your needs.
We can level and stabilize your foundation using underpinning products such as steel push piers and helical piers. Steel push piers are driven into the ground and helical piers are screwed into the ground. They are installed into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Then each pier is individually load tested. After load testing, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers with hydraulic jacks. The structure will be level and stabilized for many years.
Helical tiebacks are used to strengthen and straighten bowing or leaning walls. Helical tiebacks are horizontal rods and are used with plate anchors that have a high load capacity to bring the wall back to its original level.
