The end product: SmartJacks were installed to stabilize the floor above, while the encapsulation prevents any further mold or wood damage.
This picture was taken during the encapsulation installation.  The encapsulation material is cut and laid according to the personalized size of the crawl space so that it is fully covered; this dispels all animals, mold, dirt, and water out of the crawl space year round.

Compressed Expansion Joints

The existing expansion joint between the driveway and garage is fully compressed.

Even when the joint appears wide enough at the surface, the concrete may still be in contact underneath. This means that when the street expands with heat, your driveway is being pushed into the rest of your home.

Garage Wall Damage

The foundation walls on either side of the garage door are being pushed inwards by the driveway slab.

This is a sign that when the concrete pavement expanded and lengthened, pushing into the concrete driveway, there was insufficient compression space within the expansion joints. The only place for the driveway slab to go was through your garage walls.

Gaps Behind The Foundation Walls

Gaps have formed behind the foundation walls on either side of the garage door as the garage slab is pushed rearward.

Installing new expansion joints in the driveway and installing wall anchors will restore your foundation walls to structural stability.

Foundation Damage

Basement walls or foundation walls are pushed out by the garage slab.

At this stage, the damage caused by street creep has lead to a potentially serious foundation issue. It's important to address this soon -- before the damage becomes any more significant.

Wall Anchor Systems

Foundation walls are designed to support loads from above, not from the side. When side pressure on your walls exceeds their ability to withstand the force, they will begin to crack, bow, slide in at the bottom, and/or tilt in at the top. Rebuilding damaged walls may seem like the obvious (and expensive) answer, but even new walls will fail if the soil conditions are not changed.

Wall anchors can counteract soil pressure by anchoring walls to stable, undisturbed soil outside your home. Thanks to threaded rods that extend through the wall, wall anchors can even be used to straighten walls in many cases!

I-Beam Systems For Foundation Walls

When it isn't possible to anchor walls in the soils outside the foundation due to properly line restrictions, we recommend repairing your damaged foundation walls with the PowerBrace™ Wall Repair System.

The PowerBrace™ is an adjustable steel I-beam system with two important benefits: stabilizing bowed or tilting walls, and (over time) forcing bowed or tilting wall sections back to their original position. All PowerBrace™ components are manufactured to exacting standards, with an anti-corrosion zinc coating that will keep them looking like new for decades to come!

Foundation Piers & Slab Piers

When soils are unable to bear the load of the structure on top of it, that structure must sink downwards into the ground. This is true with homes, concrete floors, chimneys, and many other structures.

Piers can solve settlement problems by transferring a structure's weight to strong, competent supporting soils at greater depth. Piers can effectively stabilize a settling structure and can even provide jacking points to lift the structure upwards to its original, level position.

Crawl Space Jack Posts

Floors over crawl space foundations sag due to many reasons, including inadequate or shifting supports beneath floor joists and lumber deterioration due to mold and rot.

As a floor sags, this problem is often associated with other issues, including cracking drywall, skewed door and window openings, and a potentially moldy, musty odor in the house. Our SmartJack® system is designed to straighten and strengthen sagging floors over crawl space foundations. We also have other products that can eliminate crawl space moisture problems like rot and corroded metal surfaces.

CarbonArmor® System for Affordable Wall Stabilization

CarbonArmor® straps are a quick, affordable way to stabilize block and poured concrete walls that have cracked and that are showing signs of bowing. Our installers determine the number of straps required, depending upon the pressure being exerted and the length of the affected wall. The super strong carbon fiber straps are then attached to the wall with epoxy.

While this method does not restore a bowed wall to its original plumb state, it will halt further movement and cracks. And because the straps don’t protrude from the wall the way I-beams do, the repair can be easily covered with mortar, paint, or light wall panels.
