Foundation Repair Richmond VA – Your Trusted Experts
4.8 See all reviews
You need to be able to trust your foundation repair contractor. Out of town contractors don’t know about local conditions and may recommend solutions that don’t completely fix the problem. They may recommend a foundation repair solution that’s perfect for sandy soil, but your home’s built on clay soil. Or they may recommend square shaft piers when round helical piers are a better solution for your home’s foundation problem.

Foundation Repair Richmond VA – The Problems:
House settlement and expansive soils are a big problem the Richmond area. And since we’re close to the coast and mountains, we’re also prone to severe storms and hurricane weather which can add to the settlement and expansive soil problems.
Your home will settle when the soil it sits on can no longer support the weight of your home. House settlement is caused by weather, expansive soil and even poor building preparation. And if your home is settling unevenly you’ll start to notice stair step brick cracks, vertical foundation cracks or even drywall cracks above your doors and windows.
The Richmond Virginia area has a lot of clay soil, which is an expansive soil. This type of soil is greatly affected by moisture changes. Since it’s an expansive soil, it expands more than other soil types when wet, and also experiences dramatic shrinking when it dries. This movement around your foundation can create brick cracks, a damp crawl space, sagging floors or uneven floors.
The Richmond area has dramatic weather changes. The saying “if you don’t like the weather, just wait a few hours” definitely applies to our area. These weather changes do more than raise your electric bill; they can also damage your foundation.
