The foundation structure is the body "skeleton" of your home; where, much is at stake for how well the foundation was built (it is the base of your entire house). Over time changes in soil moisture, weakened clay, concrete issues and poor compaction of soils are some of the causes that damage a home foundation. Imagine how your home would hold up if the "skeleton" had a cracked wall or cracks within it's floor slabs? Chances are those cracks will eventually turn into something more devastating such as potential floods or corrosion.
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority had settlement issues on two rail lines at a road crossing in Ambler, Pennsylvania for several years. Previous attempts to lift settled rail slabs with mudjacking were not precise and were prone to washouts over time. They decided to contact Quality 1st to learn more about PolyLEVEL. The PolyLEVEL System is a two-part urethane that, when combined, expands into a waterproof, rigid foam that is used to fill voids, stabilize slabs, and lift concrete. The PolyLEVEL installation began by drilling penny-sized injection holes into the concrete slab. Next, using specialized equipment, approximately 500 hundred pounds of PolyLEVEL was injected below the slab through 96 injection areas. The slab was raised to its original elevation and cars as well as pedestrians were able to walk and drive on the concrete just minutes after installation.
Quality 1st had the opportunity to lift sunken and settled concrete at the train tracks in Ambler, Pennsylvania using the PolyLEVEL Polyurethane Injection System.

Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle inward when the force against them exceeds their ability to withstand this pressure.
Failing foundation walls will crack and leak, and if you have a finished basement, they can lead to cracks in the finished walls. Bowing walls may eventually collapse and should be addressed right away.
We repair bowing walls from the outside with our Geo-Lock Foundation Wall Anchor System.
When outside access is not possible, we recommend our PowerBrace™ I-Beam System.
Our solutions will do more than simply stop inward movement -- they can also be used to straighten the walls back to their original position.

Foundation settlement occurs when the soils underneath a foundation are unable to support the weight of the structure that's resting on them.
A settling foundation will mean a great deal of damage to your home -- including cracked foundation walls, cracked drywall, doors and windows out of square, and tilting chimneys. As foundation damage goes unaddressed, it will become more difficult to repair.
Foundation Supportworks' line of foundation piers are a great option for repairing sinking structures of all types.
These sturdy, corrosion-resistant piers can stabilize and lift your foundation back to a stable position -- permanently!

Floors over crawl spaces begin to sink in three scenarios: When there are too few supports, when the supports begin to sink into the ground, and when the structural wood holding up your floor begins to rot and grow mold.
When crawl space structures experience settlement, the entire home above can begin to show damage. Drywall will crack, doors will stick and floors will become uneven. If the crawl space is damaged by mold, there may also be moldy, musty odors upstairs.
Rugged steel supports like Foundation Supportworks' SmartJack® Crawl Space Support System can quickly restore your structure. If your structure was sinking due to mold and rot, your crawl space should also be dehumidified and encapsulated to prevent further damage.
