In the Midwest the soil tends to have heavy amounts of clay in it. Clay expands and contracts based on the weather conditions; during a drought, it contracts and conversely, rain and moisture brings expansion. This back and forth clay motion during the seasons can add excess pressure to the walls of your home’s foundation causing several issues.
Cracks in walls
Doors that stick
Cracks around Windows
Floors that sag
Drywall falling off the ceiling

Our proven methodology follows a 4-step wall straightening process. In the first step, we excavate the soil away from the wall to remove the pressure. Then we use a combination of 6×6 posts, bottle jacks and angle iron to correct the wall back to its original position. The second step involves installing our piers under the footing to bring it back to its correct position. Step three involves epoxy injecting the cracks and voids that are accessible. The fourth and final step is to install the wall bracing on the interior of the wall. These wall braces go from the footing beneath the wall up to the floor joists above and are structurally tied together.
