Foundation Walls

Strengthen Your Foundation Walls

Strengthen your foundation walls.

A1’s foundation repair is more comprehensive than other methods of repair, focusing on resolving the problem rather than fixing a symptom.

Our process involves the following steps:

1. The wall is braced on the inside to prevent any further damage.

2. The exterior wall is excavated down to the footing. This relieves the pressure, allowing us to straighten the wall and correct the area of impact.

3. The wall is hydraulically moved back into place.

4. After the wall is straightened, holes are drilled into each cell of the wall and #3 rebar is inserted into every other cell of the wall. This reinforces and ties the wall together. After the rebar has been inserted, the wall is pumped full of cement. The result is a straight, solid wall with steel encased in concrete.

5. The braces are left in place for 4-7 days while the wall cures.
