When a house is first constructed, the builders dig a hole in dense virgin soil for the foundation. After the foundation is built, the loose soil that was dug out is backfilled around the foundation. This loose soil can easily allow water to pass through and seep into your basement.
Through the years, this soil can also expand and put added pressure on your foundation, causing cracks.
Advanced Basement Systems has a number of solutions for all of your foundation repair issues in ON whether you have bowing walls, settling slab foundation, or tilting chimney, we can help.
They are compatible with most home designs and can be installed with no damage to gardens, steps, porches, walkways, or other landscaping.

Advanced Basement Systems uses the Foundation Supportworks push pier system to transfer the weight of your home through the piers from unstable soil to competent soil or bedrock.
Installation of galvanized steel foundation push piers can be done quickly all year round without the use of heavy equipment.
Installation usually takes about a day, and it can be accomplished with minimal damage to your yard's landscaping.
The push pier system can stabilize settled foundations and can even lift the structure back to its original position, making them a powerful and long-lasting solution for your home.

For lighter structures, porches, patios, and other structures that are sagging and showing fatigue, Advanced Basement Systems installs the Foundation Supportworks line of Helical Pier Systems.
Helical piers are mechanically screwed into the soil to assure permanent stabilization.
They can be used as an alternative to the push pier system in some situations, and are commonly used in new construction.
Helical piers are usually installed with small construction equipment, but can be installed with hand equipment in tight spaces. The shaft has a high resistance to bending and the helical piers offer reduced mess and excavation in and around the home.

Foundation soil shifts and settles when alternating between drying out and shrinking, and swelling from moisture. This can result in sinking columns and sagging crawl space beams, which can cause your crawl space to settle.
Improperly-spaced beams can also become overloaded and start to sag, causing the floor boards to sag as well.
Our SmartJack® Crawl Space Stabilizer has rugged steel support beams specifically designed to stabilize your crawl space and protect your home. They can support a vertical load of more than 60,000 pounds, and are able to level existing beams and floor joints.
