Foundation Repair with Helical and Push Piers

Our teams use helical and push piers from leading manufacturer Earth Contact Products to add support and weight-bearing capability to homes and buildings. Different piers work better under specific conditions, so an inspection needs to be done before installation or repair. Piers are drilled deep into stable soil to improve stability. Foundation Support Specialists uses the highest quality piers made. They last for years and shore up weakened or damaged foundations.

Concrete Leveling

Concrete leveling, sometimes referred to as mudjacking, is a method used to raise sunken concrete slabs in foundations and surrounding slabs. When soil weakens and shifts, the foundation can crack and break. Over time, soil compacts and cracked slabs sink lower. Foundation repair services in San Antonio and Austin, TX from Foundation Support Specialists use concrete leveling to raise concrete slabs back into their original position. Leveling restores the structural integrity of slabs, and work can be done to seal cracks to stop water and other substances from leaking into the concrete. Call us at 210-267-8828 to learn more!

Waterproofing and Drainage Solutions for Foundation Repair

Regulating moisture levels in basements, crawl spaces and around foundations is critical to keeping a foundation in good condition. Our team uses a variety of methods to keep water penetration out, leaving foundations clean and dry. We work with clients to install effective drainage systems that feed water away from foundations and walls. Our teams install vapor barriers to line structures with water-resistant materials that also prevent harmful gases like radon from getting inside.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Foundations often have crawl spaces around them that house insulation, plumbing systems, and other pipes, as well as HVAC vents and appliances. Unprotected crawl spaces open foundations up to water, mold, and pests. Water can damage pipes, rotting wood, and trigger mold growth.
