    Tom U. of Duluth, MN

    Customer Testimonial

              During February 2015, we had your crew installing tiling and support beams in our basement. We have been looking for an evaluation for this large project, but we do not want to miss the opportunity to let you know about our experience. To us, the size of the project was a bit overwhelming. Your sales people made more than one trip to discuss with us the options for our home. That was much appreciated. Cost and financing had to enter into our decision, and it was helpful to have sales staff who listened and responded to our concerns. Your willingness to schedule the work for a time that would be least disruptive for us was also a nice touch. The first day of the on site work, foremen Rye Efraimson and Andrew Lafontaine walked with us through the basement, explaining and clarifying the schedule for work and the scope of the project. Before work began, we had an idea which days would be idle for concrete drying time and which would be busiest. After the first day of work, Andrew Lafontaine became the active foreman. We cannot say enough nice things about this young man. He explained, he accommodated, he left notes for us concerning scheduling, he saw that the job site was cleaned at the end of each day, and he generally made this major disruption pleasant. Andrew even returned to instruct Tom how to use the wrench to tighten the beams. The crew of young men was busy every minute. There was no offensive language or loud music. They were polite and helpful. At one point, a pocket door that had been jammed off track by a grandchild, was fixed! If the crew left while we were away from home, they made sure that our garage door was closed. All four of them represented your company and themselves well.

  • "Last winter a water main broke..." Read Full Testimonial

    Mike C. of Duluth, MN

    Customer Testimonial

              Last winter a water main broke about a block from our house. Since the break was above us, thousands of gallons of water ran down the hill towards our house. I woke up to about 6-7 inches of water around my connected garage. Several inches were also in the area behind the house. I set up sump pumps to get rid of the water and got no water in the house but the ground was still very saturated. The temperature dropped from 25 above to 15 below in about 30 hours. My son heard a loud bang and the block in the basement had cracked about 18 inches below ground from the expanding pressure of the freezing water. I called several contractors to look at the problem and they all wanted to do extra work. One wanted to dig up the whole back of the house and I said I don't have any water problems, I just didn't want to have structural problems in the future. Foundation Supportworks Solutions offered a solution to reinforce the wall at a reasonable price. Using GeoLock foundation wall anchors with rebar and concrete in block cores the wall was made structurally sound. The job was done in a timely manner and the site was left extremely clean. It was hard to tell work had been done in the area. The employees of Foundation Supportworks Solutions were all friendly and professional. I would highly recommend them.

Bowing Foundation Walls

Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle inward when the force against them exceeds their ability to withstand this pressure.

Failing foundation walls will crack and leak, and if you have a finished basement, they can lead to cracks in the finished walls. Bowing walls may eventually collapse and should be addressed right away.

We repair bowing walls from the outside with our Geo-Lock Foundation Wall Anchor System.

When outside access is not possible, we recommend our PowerBrace™ I-Beam System.

Our solutions will do more than simply stop inward movement -- they can also be used to straighten the walls back to their original position.

Foundation Settlement

Foundation settlement occurs when the soils underneath a foundation are unable to support the weight of the structure that's resting on them.

A settling foundation will mean a great deal of damage to your home -- including cracked foundation walls, cracked drywall, doors and windows out of square, and tilting chimneys. As foundation damage goes unaddressed, it will become more difficult to repair.

Foundation Supportworks'™ line of foundation piers are a great option for repairing sinking structures of all types.

These sturdy, corrosion-resistant piers can stabilize and lift your foundation back to a stable position -- permanently!

Sinking Floors Over Crawl Spaces

Floors over crawl spaces begin to sink in three scenarios: When there are too few supports, when the supports begin to sink into the ground, and when the structural wood holding up your floor begins to rot and grow mold.

When crawl space structures experience settlement, the entire home above can begin to show damage. Drywall will crack, doors will stick and floors will become uneven. If the crawl space is damaged by mold, there may also be moldy, musty odors upstairs.

Rugged steel supports like Foundation Supportworks'™ SmartJack® Crawl Space Support System can quickly restore your structure. If your structure was sinking due to mold and rot, your crawl space should also be dehumidified and encapsulated to prevent further damage.
