Hydrostatic pressure pushes walls inward on our home’s foundations creating bowed and cracked walls. Hydrostatic pressure is created by large amounts of moisture high water tables absorbed by cohesive soils. This is a frequent issue around the Kansas City area.
Your home or business must have positive grading away from the foundation and proper drainage systems can be installed at our foundation footings and/or french drain systems installed to relieve this pressure. We can stabilize or straighten the foundation walls with our steel helical tieback systems from Earth Contact Products. These products are made in the USA along with other foundation piering products for foundation repair.
- Tiebacks are designed to secure and stabilize your wall from further movement.
- Tiebacks are also used to pull the wall back to its original position.
