Sinking Foundations

Sinking Foundation Getting You Down?
Having foundation problems can be one of the most unsettling experiences a homeowner may ever have to endure. That’s why B.A.M! will make your foundation repair experience as pleasant as possible, while restoring your peace of mind and home.
What Is Wrong With My Foundation?

If you are experiencing sticking doors or cracking in sheet rock, brick or foundation, there is a strong possibility that your home is undergoing differential settlement. This is usually a result, in large part, of expansive clay soils. As the clay soil dehydrates, it shrinks away from the foundation. It’s not uncommon for soil to settle several inches due to the supporting soil’s loss of volume. This settlement can cause the structure to undergo undue stress that results in cracks appearing throughout the home’s components.


Let B.A.M! Solve Your Sinking Problem

DynaPierTM Foundation Piering System

We have sinking foundation repair solutions that are designed specifically for the expansive nature of our soils. The patent pending DynaPierTM system combines galvanized steel and high-strength concrete making it one of the strongest foundation piers in the industry. Interlocking segments are hydraulically driven into the ground. Besides its sheer strength, the installation adds to its effectiveness. Instead of being attached to the outside of the footing, our system is installed beneath the footing transferring the weight of the structural load directly on top of the pier. This means the DynaPierTM system can achieve the greatest depth while also being in a position to provide the greatest support.

Because cracks do not appear in rigid materials like concrete, brick or sheetrock without another force acting upon them, it is good to have a professional foundation contractor advise you. Many times, a homeowner can save a significant amount of money by being proactive. At the first signs of cracks, give B.A.M! a call to set up a free consultation with one of our foundation experts.
