Why Foundation Repair?

The foundation is, arguably, the most important aspect of your entire house. The foundation provides support for your load-bearing walls and flooring, allowing your house to remain standing and for you to live comfortably in your house. Now, imagine not having footings under your foundation – your house could possibly sink into the ground or slowly settle causing cosmetic repairs over and over. The imagery isn’t great, and we would never want that to happen to you, which is why we provide quality foundation repair for you and your family at an affordable price.
Because the foundation is such a structurally important aspect of your home, it is important that you recognize the signs of when you will need foundation repairs. The first, and most obvious, sign is there are cracks in the outside of the foundation around your house. You can really easy check for cracks by taking a walk around your house and looking for cracks in the foundation. If you see cracks, then your foundation probably needs repairs. When you are walking around the house, also look for cracks in the brick stone siding of your house. Stair step cracking is a typical sign that something may be going on at the exterior walls of your house.

Some mold may hide in unseen nooks and crannies underneath the building if you have a crawl space or behind drywall due to a pipe leak or moisture seepage.

Another sign is if there are cracks or gaps in your flooring or interior walls. Cracks in your flooring generally mean that the foundation underneath of your house is either settling or possibly sinking, as some parts of the foundation become lower than others. Cracks can also begin appearing in your walls or doors, for the same reasons. The cracks will typically begin as hairline fractures, which will then expand as the foundation continues to weaken. You may also notice windows and doors not closing properly, floors sloping or deflection or sagging in archways.
It is important to keep an eye out for these signs that your foundation is in distress. If addressed early, foundation can be repaired more easily. Walk around the inside and outside of your house every year or so and check for signs of foundation settlement by looking for the signs above.

The 5-Step Fenwick Process

Here at TermiGuard & Fenwick, we want you to have the smoothest foundation repair project possible, so we have developed a 5-Step Process that outlines exactly what happens in order for you to have structurally sound, good quality foundation.

1. The Initial Consultation

The first step is to call us for your free initial consultation. We’ll talk about the signs that you’ve seen around your home and get a feel for the situation before scheduling a site visit.

2. The Site Visit

The second step is the actual site visit, where we will examine your existing foundation and look for the root of the problem. We never want to simply address the symptoms of the problem, like the cracks in the flooring or walls. We want to make sure that the problem is solved thoroughly, eliminating issues before they crop up later on. Our inspection is a general evaluation of the foundation repairs needed in your home. We always recommend a qualified and experienced structural engineer for the actual design and final assessment. We ensure that the structural engineer is fully licensed to make a full and detailed assessment with full specifications and drawings. That way, if you ever decide to sell your house, you have the necessary documentation ready to go. Additionally, you will need permits for the repair, which these documentations will address. Furthermore, we understand that you will most probably be getting estimates from multiple contractors, so we want you to be able to compare apples to apples, given the common scope of work everyone can estimate from.

3. The Plan

The third step is to discuss what your options are to repair your foundation, ensuring that our recommendations fit your home and your budget. We always offer options, but aim to educate our clients before they make any decisions. Those options come with thorough explanations of the possible outcomes and costs associated with each plan. We want you to make the best decision for you and your family.

4. Execution

The most exciting step is next, where we execute the plan! Using the discussed plan, we implement the changes, always leaving your house neat when we leave. Our workmen are detail-oriented and professional, treating your home as their own. Your project manager will be available throughout the process and your personal customer service rep assigned will coordinate the details of service by keeping you informed. You’ll have an open line of communication and you can ask about anything that’s happening.

5. Follow-up

The last step is the follow-up. We want you to be happy with our work, and we want to make sure our work stands up to the elements. This is the most important part of your home, so it needs to be monitored carefully after repair.
Our 5-Step Process not only aims to make the process easier for you, but it also serves to communicate where we are in the repair process. You are always welcome to ask us questions and express your concerns, should you have any, and we are always more than happy to address them. We want you to feel comfortable with the entire process, especially for something as important as foundation repair or replacement for your house.

What is Foundation Reinforcement?

Reinforcement is when we install reinforcing rods into the walls of your foundation and fill the rods and holes with solid grout or a specific concrete material. The purpose of reinforcement is to reinforce the existing walls of your foundation. After we install the reinforcing rods, we will always do a thorough inspection to ensure that the foundation will be strong enough to do the job. If needed, we will build back any cosmetic finishes on the walls.

If we use carbon fiber straps instead of reinforcing rods, we will ensure they get tied into the footing, the wall, and the plate at the top of the wall. The major benefit of using carbon fiber straps is that they are significantly less invasive to the existing walls. But it’s not always possible to use the straps as every method has design limitations.

If the walls of the foundation are severely compromised and bowed too much for either of the aforementioned options, we will recommend installing reinforcing steel and tying into the footing, into the bottom, and into the floor-joists at the top of the wall. If this third option is not viable either, we will recommend replacement.

The purpose of reinforcement is to reinforce the existing walls of your foundation.

What is Foundation Replacement?

As you can probably tell from the name, replacement means, well, removing and replacing your foundation walls. To do so, we temporarily support the structure to get it stable and safe. We then excavate the exterior of the foundation, remove the foundation wall or walls in question and dispose of it. At this point, while your structure is being supported by a temporary support. We will reinforce the existing or install a new footing if applicable. New block will be installed on the new or existing footing which we will coat with the necessary water or damp proofing materials. The excavation will be backfilled, the temporary supports will be removed and finally grading and restoration of building materials will occur. As always, we will conduct a series of inspections throughout the entire process to ensure that our quality remains high.

What are Crack Injections?

Crack repair injections are typically needed to either cosmetically repair or structurally repair a cracked wall. When we use crack injections, we inject cracks in the foundation with a 2-part epoxy or polyurethane foam by drilling and installing injection ports.
If the crack in the foundation is structural, we may have to underpin the footing at that area or install epoxy bow ties to lock both sides of the crack together. Often when water penetration occurs at the crack, we will, in addition to injecting and bow ties, we will install a fiber strap down to the top of footing.
