Why is Foundation Repair Important?

We know that foundation repair can be daunting and costly. However, delaying it will only worsen your problems and inflate the costs. That’s why it is crucial to take action now to prevent potential impacts on your home and family. Here’s why:

Safety Hazards

While issues like uneven floors may seem insignificant, left unchecked, they can lead to catastrophic consequences. Even sticking windows and doors may prove dangerous in emergency situations. That’s why we prioritize preventative measures to protect you and your family from the many risks that can cause safety hazards. Trust us to keep your home secure and comfortable for years to come because we believe everyone deserves a safe and worry-free environment.

Lowered Functionality

Foundation issues disrupt the regular day-to-day use of your home. Doors and windows become stuck or crooked, household items roll off counters, and the dishes in your cabinets clatter every time you walk past. Mundane tasks become a constant reminder of underlying foundation problems and turn into a nuisance. This frustration is not fun for anyone, and we believe you deserve better than living in a dysfunctional home.

Costly Damage & Repairs

The longer you wait to fix foundation problems, the costlier the repairs will be. Ignoring these issues or delaying their repair can lead to even more damage, like unsightly cracks in your walls and floors, as well as countertops. By addressing foundation problems early, you can save money and ensure a safe and secure living environment. Don’t wait until it’s too late!

Decreased Property Value

Maximizing the value of your property when preparing to sell can be a major concern. Any damage can quickly diminish a home’s value, while foundation issues may slowly worsen over time. Cracks in walls and floors are telltale signs of foundation problems, and potential buyers and home inspectors won’t miss them. Simply covering them up won’t address the root cause. The problem will only keep resurfacing. When it comes to your biggest investment, your home, a quick fix isn’t worth the risk. For reliable solutions that deliver the best results, trust Foundation Repair of Western Colorado.

What Causes Foundation Damage?

The root cause of foundation damage lies in your property’s soil and how it interacts with excessive or lacking moisture.

When wet, the soil expands, and when dry, it contracts. This constant motion can be intense, especially during periods of rain or drought. The latter is the biggest culprit in our area.

In Western Colorado, the most common problem is that the region’s Bentonite clay soil doesn’t usually have a high-moisture content, so when rain comes in the Spring, the soil expands rapidly. Major plumbing leaks, faulty foundation drainage, and invasive tree roots can also wreak havoc on your foundation.

SettleStop Pier Systems

If your home has issues such as diagonal wall cracks, floors that aren’t level, and doors and windows that are difficult to operate, the soil beneath your home may be to blame. But don’t worry, we have a solution!

Our SettleStop pier systems provide a permanent fix that prevents future settling and can lift your home back to its original position. With a lifetime, transferable warranty, you can have peace of mind knowing your home is safe.

We specialize in both helical pier and push piers installation. These piers differ slightly in their design and installation but provide the same reliable results.

Here’s how each pier system works:

Helical Piers

One way to permanently stabilize a home that is settling, particularly a lighter structure, is with our SettleStop Helical Pier System. Our state-of-the-art technology uses steel piers with circular helical plates resembling screws to secure your property in stable soil beneath your home.

We begin by excavating the soil to expose the foundation footing, and then use hydraulic equipment to advance the piers into the ground. Our experienced experts monitor the process closely, ensuring that the proper depth and capacity are achieved. A steel bracket is attached to the footing, and the weight of your home is then transferred through the piers and down to more stable underlying soil.

We also use laser levels to set benchmarks at the pier installation points and frequently check the exterior rivets to maintain the ongoing security of the system.

Push Piers

Our other piering system, SettleStop Push Piers, uses steel rods that are pushed into the earth, making them unique and exceptionally robust.

We remove the soil around the footing and attach the footing bracket to ensure each pier section is securely pushed until it reaches bedrock or load-bearing strata. With our push pier system, your foundation will have the stability it needs for years to come.

Our professional team will also install rivets on your exterior walls above the piers as benchmarks, providing you with durable support that you can rely on.

SettleStop Wall Repairs

Foundation issues can cause water to seep through your basement walls and lead to moisture-related problems like mold and efflorescence. But Foundation Repair of Western Colorado offers wall repairs that are efficient, effective, and won’t disrupt your daily life.

We know how important it is to have a clean and tidy space, which is why most of the work is completed in your basement, resulting in minimal disruption and quick installation. Plus, once we’re done, you won’t even know we were there!

Our wall repair options include:

Wall Anchors

Say goodbye to severe wall damage with SettleStop Wall Anchors. Our specialized system provides the lateral support your walls need when they have cracked and moved more than two inches inward.

To ensure stability, anchor plates are placed inside the walls while earth anchors are buried outside the foundation. Using a specialized wrench, our experts tighten steel rods that join the plates and move them closer together. This prevents any further cracking or inward movement and offers the potential for your walls to return to their original positions.

Learn more about Wall Anchors >>

I-Beams

If you have cracked and bowed walls but don’t have the space for wall anchors, our SettleStop IntelliBrace™ I-beams are the ideal solution.

These beams are installed vertically on your basement walls and offer exceptional structural support by bracing to the floor and floor joists. This helps shift the weight from the walls and prevent further movements. Plus, by tightening the top bolt on the floor joists, the beams exert pressure against your walls to keep them firmly in place for permanent stabilization.

Learn more about IntelliBrace™ >>

Carbon Fiber Reinforcement

Don’t wait until your basement walls are falling apart to get them fixed! If you notice any cracking or inward movement less than two inches, it may be time for repair. Our solution is the SettleStop Carbon Fiber Reinforcement system, which is designed to fit snugly and strengthen basement walls.

The process is quick and simple. We use an epoxy adhesive to install high-strength carbon fiber straps inside your basement walls. Once installed, the straps are 10 times stronger than steel. As a result, the walls can withstand hydrostatic pressure and are permanently stabilized in their current positions. Plus, the installation is minimally invasive, leaving your basement space intact.

SettleStop IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Support Posts

You no longer have to put up with creaking and sagging floors that affect your home’s safety and aesthetics. SettleStop IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Support Posts are the answer. These adjustable posts are designed to provide extra strength to weakened floor joists for a stable floor structure.

Our posts are attached securely beneath the joists and to the support beams above, ensuring that your floor will be strong and durable. Each jack has an allowable load capacity of more than 24,000 lbs., ensuring they are certified to meet the highest industry standards. Let us help you make your floors safe and appealing again!

Factors Affecting Foundation Repair Cost

Calculating the cost of your home repair project is essential, especially when it comes to foundation repairs. A variety of factors can influence the expense, including:

  • Type of Foundation: The way your home was built, particularly what kind of foundation it has, affects repair costs. Whether your house has a crawl space, slab, or basement foundation makes a big difference.
  • Extent of Damage: The degree to which your home is damaged also plays a role in determining the project price. Cracks that aren’t as wide may not be as expensive to fix as major foundation shifts or structural harm.
  • Soil Conditions: Your foundation’s soil composition has a direct impact on your overall cost. Clay-heavy soil, which is typical in Western Colorado, can create major issues due to its expansion and contraction with moisture changes.
  • Location: Your foundation repair project costs can vary based on other factors such as where your home is located, living costs, and building codes.

Uncovering the true cost of foundation repairs all boils down to what your home needs, and we can help with that.

We used Groundworks to put in an interior drain and sump pump when our foundation started leaking into our garage. Mike our sales manager was prompt, thorough, and professional. Our installation crew of Isaac, Kevin, and Blake were fabulous. They arrived on time, communicated well to set expectations, and were extremely professional and courteous. They did great work in less time than estimated, left the site very clean, and even took care of a few small tasks that should have been our responsibility as the homeowner. Appointment set up and communication with the main office was equally impressive. Would recommend!

Foundation Repair of Western Colorado performed a crawl space encapsulation for me in July of 2023. I met with Mike Z and once we talked through the issues and resolutions it was clear he knew what to do and how to provide the best solution. The 3 man crew; Blake W, Scott W and Michael M that came here to perform the encapsulation were absolutely great to work with. I was explained of the work to be done, how it was going to be done and they did exactly that. They protected my home from foot traffic and clean up as well at the end. The work done was neat, clean and completed in a timely manner. My hats off to them and would highly recommend this company for your project.

They quickly realized the nature of the service we need during the initial call and helped avoiding a much more expensive remedy. They had their specialist (Nicholas Langdon) do a site visit and accurately determine the nature of the remedy, and scheduled the repairs. The crew showed up on time, we’re very professional and very helpful during the 2 days of repairs, walked us through all the work at every step, and Nick worked closely with our plumber for all the pre & post plumbing related work. The crew completed the job on time and fully cleaned the premises of all debris and left the place very clean. All told, and excellent service, and excellent relationship management by Nick and the crew, and an excellent professionalism throughout from the planning to execution to completion.I will use this service again, and would recommend them to anyone needing foundation repair & waterproofing work. Well done.

Jeff, Isaac and Alire were a great crew. They worked hard and got my crawlspace encapsulation done in three days. I believe that the tech they used will solve my moisture problem. Although it has not been fully tested we can already feel a difference. Only drawback I can see is that the drainage pump is wimpy. This summer I will change it out for something more substantial like a sump pump.

FAQs

We use only warrantied foundation repair products that have proven to be effective for repairing issues like cracks, sinking, bowing walls, and more. We ensure the best solution for your home’s specific needs. 

Manufactured right here in the United States, each foundation product is carefully designed and tested by a team of structural and geotechnical engineers. All our systems also come with a written warranty so that you know your problem was fixed right. 

Our strong wall reinforcement and piering solutions are made with galvanized steel to prevent rust, corrosion, and damage, and stand up to the toughest forces to give you peace of mind. 

Here is what we’ll use to protect your home and help restore its safety and value: 

  • Wall Repair and Reinforcing Systems – The severity of wall damage can vary, so we offer a few different options for wall repair and reinforcement. 
  • Wall Anchors – Durable earth anchors are securely embedded in stable soil away from the foundation wall, and they are connected to sturdy steel interior wall anchor plates with long galvanized steel rods. This system will permanently stabilize the wall and offer the best opportunity to straighten it over time. This unique system also offers the ability to tighten the anchors when exterior soil shrinks during dry periods. 
  • IntelliBrace™ Beams – Similar to Wall Anchors, IntelliBrace™ beams permanently stabilize foundation walls and can help straighten them over time. This system is ideal to use when there is little or no access available outside of the home for exterior wall repair. 
  • Carbon Fiber Supports – Strong Carbon Fiber supports firmly adhere to the walls to stabilize them and hold them in their current positions, preventing any further cracks or inward movement. They have a low profile and a smooth finish, allowing them to easily be painted or concealed by basement finishing materials. 
  • Foundation Pier Systems – Heavy-duty piering systems are needed to properly address foundation settlement. These piers are installed deep into the ground and down to more stable soil to permanently stabilize the home and help lift it back to its original position. 
  • Push Piers – Push Piers are hydraulically driven through a bracket attached to the foundation footing and down to bedrock or a stable soil layer. This is the most used type of pier for most foundation settlement applications. 
  • Helical Piers – Helical Piers function like Push Piers and are installed almost the same way. But Helical Piers are manually advanced or screwed into the ground. These piers typically are used in specialty foundation settlement applications and for very light structures like porches. 
  • Slab Piers – Slab Piers are installed like Push Piers and Helical Piers, but these piers and are used to stabilize your concrete slab foundation. 
  • Crawl Space Supports – We use IntelliJacks™ to stabilize and help lift sagging crawl space or basement floors and floor joists back to level. Our crawl space support system has an allowable load capacity of more than 24,000 pounds per support jack, and is tested and certified to the highest industry standards.

Additionally, we can use the PolyRenewal™ system to lift and level cracking, settling concrete slab floors in your home and garage. 

You don’t have to live with stressful foundation problems. Take back your home and enhance its safety for the happiness and wellbeing of your family. If you have any questions along the way, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance! We are eager to help you repair and protect your home by creating a safer and healthier living environment!

If you are concerned with working with a contractor, rest assured you will be in good hands with Foundation Repair of Western Colorado. When you choose to work with us, you are our No. 1 priority, and you become part of our family. 

The first thing we’ll do is work with you to schedule a time for one of our certified field inspectors to visit your home for a free inspection and estimate. It’s important for the inspector to physically be in your home to look at exactly what is going on. He will complete a thorough assessment of your home and its foundation, including looking for signs of cracks and other symptoms and measuring for movement and settlement. That way, he can recommend customized solutions that will specifically address your home’s repair needs. 

As the inspector lets you know exactly what steps need to be taken to permanently stabilize your foundation, he will prepare a written estimate detailing the work, products needed, and costs. He will take your budget into consideration as well as discuss financing options with you. Take your time to sit with this estimate and think it over, and don’t be afraid to reach back out to your inspector with any follow-up questions and concerns. 

Once you decide to go ahead with the work and have signed a contract with your inspector, we’ll then schedule this work with one of our highly trained crews. The crew will take great care in installing proven solutions to restore value to your greatest investment. The job is not complete until you are completely satisfied with the work. So, if something comes up during the process or if the work isn’t living up to expectations, don’t be afraid to speak up. We also offer service and maintenance opportunities to ensure the systems we installed continue to operate at a high level to protect your home. 

Undoubtedly, the cost of repair is one of, if not the, biggest concerns we hear from homeowners. And that’s natural. Money matters, and so does your home. You want to make sure it is being protected by the best, cost-effective solutions.  

There is a lot to consider with these types of repairs including what kind of repair is needed, the area needing to be repaired, the extent of damage, labor, materials, etc. All these things differ from company to company, so be sure to have a thorough discussion with your contractor about pricing and payment. 

Also, no two foundation problems are alike. Every house has its own unique problems and requires its own special solutions to fix them. So, what worked for friends and neighbors to fix their homes may not necessarily be what your house needs.  

To give you an idea, average home improvement spending is around $7,500, and many homeowners pay between $4,000 and $10,000 for foundation repairs. Some average foundation repair product prices are $1,000-$3,000+ per foundation pier, $500-$1,300+ for leveling/slab jacking, and $2,000-$6,000 for sealing/subfloor drainage. 

Check with your insurance carrier regarding concerns with repair needs and insurance coverage, as all policies are different. Some policies may cover losses from fires, but many exclude coverage for issues such as foundation cracks or settling. But coverage may kick in if the foundation has been damaged from other problems like broken plumbing, for example. (Source: SF Gate

Now that you’ve learned more about foundation problems and why they need to be fixed, don’t you feel motivated to tackle these issues head-on? Wouldn’t it feel great to finally fix your foundation for good? 

A lot of people consider whether they should repair the problems at hand or go all in and replace the whole foundation. In this faceoff of foundation repair vs. foundation replacement, repairing is the clear winner. Foundation replacement is quite invasive and time-consuming, and it won’t truly get to the root of the problems. But various repair methods will permanently solve the issues, so you won’t have to worry about them again. 

Before you start planning, first think about who is going to be doing these repairs. True, fixing your foundation can get expensive and you’re probably thinking you could save a few dollars here and there by doing it yourself. However, as handy as you may be, foundation repair is a serious undertaking that is best suited for experienced repair professionals.  

No doubt you’ve heard about people who had less than stellar experiences with contractors who didn’t fix the problems, made the issues worse, or failed to complete the job at all. But don’t let these tales completely influence your decision to hire a contractor.  

We know it can feel intimidating trying to find the right contractor and trust them with your home. But the best thing you can do is be prepared and arm yourself with knowledge and research. Take the time to thoroughly do your homework and inquire about foundation repair companies. Learn as much as you can about a company and make sure your contractor of choice has the experience you need to get the job done. Ask for reviews and references and check third-party resources like the Better Business Bureau. Request contractor must-haves like licenses, certificates, insurance, warranties, and other pertinent documentation. 

You’ve seen some typical foundation problem warning signs and learned about how they happen. But you still might be wondering what’s in it for you with undertaking repair projects. The answer is a lot!  There are so many ways you can benefit from fixing your foundation issues.  Here are just a couple of advantages: 

  • Enhanced Structural Integrity and Safety — First and foremost, the safety of your house and everyone living in it should be a top priority. Don’t you want a safe and stable place to live and for your family to grow and create memories? If you have a feeling something could be wrong, don’t put off fixing your foundation issues. The longer you wait to repair them, the more costly and extensive they could become. Plus, you’d be putting your family’s wellbeing at risk. But if you catch the warning signs early enough and fix them with the right solutions, you may not need to have to take on as much of a project as you thought. Even if you’ve got other projects and upgrades you’d like to tackle, remember the sayings about having a strong foundation. Start from the ground up to ensure your home will stay standing for a long time.
     
  • Improved Real Estate Value — Your house is going to be on the real estate market at some point – whether you intend to live in your house for several years or you plan to sell it soon. In any case, you need to make sure it’s ready and that its market value is intact. The best way to do that is to fix any newly noticed or lingering foundation problems before selling. You could sell as-is, but you’ll still have to fill out the Seller’s Property Disclosure form. With this form, you’ll have to disclose any known past or current problems like cracks, heaving, settling, and exterior issues. Plus, foundation issues can reduce your home’s resale value by 10 to 30 percent, and homebuyers could have problems getting a mortgage. Most homebuyers expect a home to be free of problems, and a safe and stable house is much more attractive to potential owners as opposed to one with cracks and uneven floors. 

When it comes to something as important as your foundation, it is best to leave any repairs you might need to the experts at Foundation Repair of Western Colorado. 

Why DIY Repairs Are Not Recommended 

The foundation is perhaps the most vital structure to your home’s overall health. It is not something that just anyone should attempt to repair on their own. You may accidentally damage it even further, leading to more costly repairs further in the future. It is best to call the foundation experts to assess where the true cause of damage lies. 

Similarly, any DIY repair methods sold at your local home improvement stores will not be strong enough to fully protect your foundation nor the soils supporting it and your home. At best, they can offer temporary relief to your issues while you schedule an appointment with our experts.
