When a home foundation is damaged, things can look much worse than they actually are. In that light, it may seem like the foundation is beyond repair. Instead, -- the solution is to demolish the old foundation and build a new one in its place.
While we agree that it's wise to take every foundation problem seriously, it's important to bear in mind that most foundation issues have simple, permanent repair solutions.
Replacing your foundation is an expensive, time-consuming process that doesn't really address the original source of your foundation issues -- the soils around your home.
Foundations old and new can experience damage from expansive soils, settlement, frost, and other forces. That's why we at Quality 1st Basements prefer to address these problems on your existing foundation -- with warrantied, permanent solutions.

Expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure can push against foundation walls and cause inward movement. Foundation walls can bow inward, tilt at the top and/or slide at the bottom, causing cracks and even collapse of the wall.
Foundation walls can be stabilized using wall anchors, steel beams, or fiber-reinforced polymer. We offer a variety of proven systems to stabilize cracked and bowed basement walls.Schedule a free
Bowing and/or tilting basement walls are caused by pressure from the surrounding soil pushing against the foundation. Cracks in the masonry are usually an early sign of a problem.
Foundation wall anchors can not only stabilize bowed basement walls and prevent them from bowing and/or tilting any further, but our wall anchors can also be tightened when the soil around your house shrinks during dry periods. This allows for improvement and straightening of your bowing basement walls.Schedule a free
Street creep is a problem caused by thermal expansion and contraction of exterior concrete pavement surrounding a home. Home builders install expansion and control joints in the driveway to protect the home from expansion forces caused by temperature fluctuations. When this expansion takes place, the concrete street elongates and can push against the concrete driveway, which then pushes against the garage slab or foundation slab. This pressure can cause foundation walls to crack.
Repairing a foundation that has been damaged by street creep can usually be repaired by first installing new expansion joints. Foundation walls can be stabilized using wall anchors.Schedule a free
Foundation settlement happens when the soil under your foundation fails to support its weight. Specific causes of a settling foundation include frost heave, expansive clay soil and soil that is saturated by heavy rain or a major water leak. When a foundation sinks, symptoms can include basement wall cracks, windows and/or doors that are difficult to open and close, and cracks in exterior brick.
The typical repair for foundation settlement is to use foundation piers to transfer the weight of the home to competent soil or bedrock.Schedule a free
Floors above crawl spaces often begin to sag for three major reasons: sinking mid-span supports, poorly spaced supports, and rotting structural members. This damage shows up in the living space in the form of uneven or bouncy floors, jamming doors and cracks in the wallboard.
Repairing a damaged crawl space can often be done in less than a day. Heavy duty support posts can restore structural stability to the home, and they may even return the floor to its original straight, level state.Schedule a free
Sagging or unlevel floors above a crawl space create many issues inside the home, such cracked tiles, noisy floor joists and bouncy floors. Sagging, uneven floors can be caused by a variety of problems, including sinking support piers or columns, failing floor joists, sagging or rotted support beams and/or sill plate failure. Sagging crawl spaces can also be a result of improper spacing of the support columns.
The typical repair for a sagging crawl space includes installing additional crawl space supports to stabilize the structure and help re-level the floor. Mold and rot should also be addressed and prevented. The crawl space can be kept dry with a dehumidifier and crawl space liner.Schedule a free
Concrete slabs, including foundations and outdoor slabs, can be susceptible to settlement due to a wide variety of factors. Poorly compacted soil, soil erosion and improper drainage can all lead to concrete settlement and cause cracks in the concrete slab.
Mudjacking is the process of lifting a sunken concrete slab by pumping grout through holes in the concrete, which pushes the slab up from below. The concrete leveling process is also commonly referred to as "slabjacking" and "pressure grouting."Schedule a free
