If you have foundation problems – your house isn’t keeping it a big secret.
There are many tell-tale signs of foundation issues ranging from simple cracking to complete separation. If you notice any of the below issues, call us today to make sure the problem isn’t more serious than expected.
Ever notice cracks within your brickwork or blocked foundation that follow up in a stair-step pattern? Those shouldn’t be considered as added “character” or “exterior decorating”. Those also aren’t a quick tuck-pointing fix. Those can often be signs that your foundation is sinking.
We’ll give you, the homeowner, a free quote for your foundation repair.
We’ll get back to you with a cost-effective solution.
Whenever an opening is formed, it becomes the weakest point of the wall and is often the first place where foundation problems become visible. Cracks extending out from the corners of doors and windows, separation from framing or finish, and doors and windows that stick are things to keep a watchful eye out for. If your windows are closed and still letting air in, caulk won’t fix the breeze in the long run.
Anywhere you see cracks around the interior of your home should be a clue that you may have a foundation issue. Cracks within your drywall, ceilings, concrete walls, or concrete floors should be a hint to call in a foundation expert for an estimate. Another common sign within the interior of your home is buckling drywall tape and cracks along drywall seams.
Chimneys are usually built on a shallow foundation that is not connected to that of your home, giving them a greater risk for settlement. If this is the case, chimneys can show signs of foundation failure before your home.

Chris Couden and Corey G. Completed a slab jacking project for our HOA on 9/13. I just wanted you to know that they did a great job. They were very professional and Chis did a great job of explaining everything they were doing. Cleanup was extraordinary. We would not hesitate to use your services in the future.
We always get competitive bids when reviewing a potential construction project for our home. Helitech was both competitively priced and it was completed on time. Our sales person Jon Courtney demonstrated a firm understanding of what was causing our issue and helped guide us through the process of installing a professional waterproofing system for our home. Ask for Jon!
