Foundation Replacement

Customer

Residential Customer

 

Location

Glencoe, IL.

 

Symptom

Deteriorated and Bowed Foundation

 

Problem

 

If the deteriorated and bowed foundation was left as it was, the structural elements supported by the foundation (i.e., the rest of the house), would become stressed to the point of failure.

These types of damages are typically not covered under many homeowners'' insurance policies.

  

Structural

Shored up house and removed the existing foundation one section at a time. Once each section was shored and the section of foundation was removed, a new foundation footing was poured and a new steel reinforced foundation was installed complete with waterproofing.
