INDIANAPOLIS FOUNDATION REPAIR COMPANY

Do you have a home or business in Indianapolis, IN? Managing any type of structure means you may someday need to call on an Indianapolis foundation repair company. There are a few reasons for this, the first of which is that foundation issues are nothing to trifle with. Your home or commercial building rests on a specifically calibrated surface, and any damage or deterioration can spell major trouble, evidenced by cracks, moisture/leaks, and even unevenness.

 The age of the structure and weight distribution impact the foundation of a building. Add to that midwest climate and weather conditions (that change soil and moisture), and you’re looking at the need for ongoing observation.

The Indianapolis foundation repair experts at Acculevel can diagnose and solve problems in basements, crawlspaces, and foundations. Read on to learn more about what our foundation repair company does for homeowners and business owners in this region, or reach out to get a free foundation repair estimate today.

FOUNDATION PROBLEMS AND HOW TO FIX THEM

Here are some of the common foundation problems we find in basements like yours and the things we can do to repair the damage.

WATER INTRUSION

Heavy rainfall and melting snow in the spring can lead to unwanted water in your home in the form of leaks and flooding. When the soil that’s supporting your foundation gets wet, it swells and pushes against underground walls, which can lead to a number of problems that affect your foundation, walls, and floors.  Many foundation problems start with water, but Acculevel’s Indianapolis foundation contractors have a variety of solutions designed to keep water out of your home. We can relieve hydrostatic pressure buildup with the optimal waterproofing system for your home.  All of our waterproofing systems drain into a sump pump system that’s safeguarded against power outages and mechanical failures with dependable backup options. You can include an Advanced Text Alarm with any of the foundation repair options to connect with your smart home technology.

MOLD AND MILDEW

On top of directly damaging your home’s foundation or structure, humidity in the soil can lead to an environment primed for wood rot, mold and mildew growth, and other pest and allergen problems. These problems can affect both your home’s foundation and the air quality inside your home. An Indianapolis foundation repair professional can treat the mold and prevent it from coming back with a water-based fungicidal coating. We can seal and treat unconditioned basements and crawl spaces with a strong and puncture-resistant encapsulation material as part of the home waterproofing and mold inhibition process.

Damaged Walls

Walls that are bowed, leaning, rotating, or cracked are a sign of a foundation problem. Your walls hold your home together, but they can’t handle a lot of lateral pressure from wet or shifting soil. Problems with your walls can cause other structural issues in your basement and home. Damaged walls might benefit from one of several Indianapolis foundation repair options: helical piers, carbon fiber straps, I-beams, support jacks, tie backs, or wall anchors, depending on how the soil is acting on them.

Sagging Floors

If water has gotten into your foundation, basement, or crawlspace, it can cause your floor joists to warp, rot, sag, or deteriorate. This leads to weak spots that cause an uneven or sagging floor, which you might notice if your furniture is leaning toward the center of the room or your floors seem excessively bouncy.  Problems with your floors can be managed with support jacks, metal beams, and joist support and repair, depending on the size and location of your foundation’s weak spots.

Leaning Chimneys

Expanding soil can cause your home to shift, which is one of the causes of a leaning chimney and something that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible.  A foundation repair expert in Indianapolis can provide support in the form of water intrusion solutions, as well as the installation of helical piers. Acculevel can ensure that the system can be tightened and adjusted after installation to ensure that it works for your home.

UNEVEN CONCRETE SLABS

If the slabs around your home are shifting or cracking, they’re probably settling, which is a sign that the soil underneath them can’t support their weight. Like a lot of problems that Indianapolis foundation contractors see, this can be caused by soil composition or from excess moisture.  Improving the soil conditions underneath your concrete can help restore them to their original position. Slabjacking is Acculevel’s minimally invasive solution for sunken concrete slabs. Here’s how it works:

  • Drill discreet holes into the concrete. 
  • Inject a safe and stabilizing foam material to fill in the voids. 
  • Lift the concrete back up.
  • Patch the holes. 

It’s fast, precise, effective, and very clean, especially compared to processes like mudjacking or alternatives that tear up the area around the concrete.
