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.

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 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 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.

Cracking and bowing in the foundation walls of a house in Windsor, London, Sarnia, [minor cities 2], Wallaceburg, Hanover, Kincardine, Point Edward, Tecumseh of Ontario and the surrounding areas is a common problem.
It most often occurs as the lateral pressure from the soil around the foundation exceeds the home's load-bearing capacity. A properly installed foundation wall anchoring system can restore and reinforce the structural integrity of a building.
It will provide a good alternative to removing and rebuilding foundation walls or using other wall bracing systems, and can be installed with minimal landscaping disruption..
The PowerBrace™ Wall Repair System is the ideal way to stabilize failing foundation walls. If you have walls that are bowing, buckling, or tilting inwards, installing a PowerBrace™ system can stop any further damage and potentially straighten the wall.
The PowerBrace™ consists of steel I-beams that are secured to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. This system is easily adjustable, allowing for tightening of the brace to attempt to raise the wall back to its original position. This system doesn't involve any exterior excavation and installs quickly with minimal disruption to your basement space.
The CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System is a state-of-the-art solution for bowing and cracking foundation walls. Using the same technology the Army Corps of Engineers developed to reinforce bomb shelters, skyscrapers, and bridges, we use CarbonArmor® to stabilize your basement walls.
The CarbonArmor® System includes flexible carbon fiber fabric straps that are up to 10 times stronger in tension than steel. Using high strength epoxy resin, the carbon fiber straps are bonded to the interior face of the wall. The straps will stabilize the wall. This system requires no exterior excavation, installs quickly, and won't impact future basement finishing..
GeoLock® Wall Anchors are designed to repair walls that are sliding inwards, tilting at the top, bowing, and buckling. These wall anchors are made of galvanized steel for a long-lasting solution that will prevent any further inward movement of your walls.
Wall anchors work by extending from your wall to the stable, hard packed soil beyond your home. They anchor into these stronger soils and brace the foundation wall, preventing further movement. Wall anchors are installed with minimal disruption to your lawn, and they won't damage the interior of your basement or take up usable space. In fact, GeoLock® Wall Anchors can easily be concealed by our Hide-A-Way® covers for a clean finished appearance.

GeoLock® Channel Anchors are a versatile and effective method of stabilizing walls that are pushing in at the top or bottom, bowing, or tipping. With corrosion-resistant galvanized steel and floor mounts for extra strength, our channel anchors provide an incredible durable solution that will halt all inward movement of your walls.
To install channel anchors, we begin by boring holes in the yard for earth anchors and drilling corresponding holes in the foundation. Galvanized steel earth anchors are installed and steel rods are joined to them through the wall. The channel anchor is then mounted on the other end of the rod inside your foundation wall, secured to the floor, and tightened into place. This will permanently stabilize your wall and could return it to its original condition. After this, we restore your landscaping and basement to the state we found them in.
