Foundation Repair and recovery - Granby
Freeze/thaw cycles, poor drainage and waterlogged grey clay can all damage a concrete foundation and cause sections, or even the entire wall, to buckle and shift. Restoring the foundation to its original position is crucial to avoid further damage and eliminate the risk of collapse.
To correct this type of problem, we use hydraulic or manual cylinders to support and stabilize the house while we bring the affected wall back into position. Block walls are reinforced with steel rods and injected with concrete, whereas cracks in concrete walls are filled with epoxy. The perimeter of the foundation must then be thoroughly drained to prevent other corners or walls from shifting.
To repair stone foundations, we fill in the gaps between stones and apply two coats of sprayed waterproofing membrane as well as a drainage membrane. The perimeter of the foundation must then be thoroughly drained to prevent other corners or walls from shifting.
