Foundation Repair in Richmond, VA

Foundation damage like cracks, bowing walls, and settling are very real problems that can greatly impact the safety and structural integrity of the rest of your home. It doesn’t help that the soil around Richmond, VA, has sandy properties and that the area is wet year-round. Unstable soil is typically at the root of most foundation issues. 

While it’s not realistic to change all the soil under and around your Richmond home, there are ways to fix your foundation and ensure its longevity. JES Foundation Repair can help with reliable, permanent foundation repair solutions that will put your home back on solid ground. 

Foundation Problem Signs in Richmond, VA

Your Richmond home could show signs of foundation damage in various forms. Some of the most typical and easy to notice include basement wall cracks, basement floor cracks, bowing basement walls, drywall nail pops, drywall cracks, cracking and leaning chimney, settling, and uneven floors. These issues also can co-occur or be confused with similar basement or crawl space problems, so it’s important to have a professional inspection from JES to determine exactly what the problems and causes are. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Richmond, VA

While foundation problems can have a number of causes, the soil underneath and around your Richmond home is generally the source. Sandy soil typical throughout Richmond tends to be well-drained. If it is too well-drained or the area experiences a drought or lack of precipitation, it will shrink, and the foundation can sink into voids left behind. If the soil is inundated with water from frequent rain, the foundation can settle in the soft soil, or the walls can crack and move inward because of excess hydrostatic pressure. 

Foundation Repair Solutions in Richmond, VA

Every home in Richmond is unique, as are their foundations and the challenges they face. That’s why each home requires customized foundation repair solutions. JES is proud to offer a variety of solutions to put your foundation and home back on solid ground. These include wall reinforcements and repairs like carbon fiber straps, wall anchors, and specialized wall repair beams. To address foundation settlement, we can install different piers depending on your foundation type and damage – helical piers, push piers, and slab piers.

To start, Our Sales representative Blaine Harvey was very professional. Did a complete inspection of the property. Made a few recommendations but really focused and addressed our concern/problem areas. This is greatly appreciated.Roberto and Jose Martinez, the installation crew were very polite and professional as well. Addressed all concerns and answered every question showing their expertise in the field. They were very clean throughout the installation. Under the house was left better than before. We had plastic underneath but needed to be removed in order for them to work. Did not expect them to re-line the ground upon completion but they used heavy duty plastic as a replacement. This is greatly appreciated. It is always the little things that make the difference in projects to homeowners. I would like to also mention Jo in the Richmond area office. Was very helpful in getting the information on the account up to date and taking the payment over the phone. Very well spoken and appreciate the small chit chat. She was a tremendous asset. We will need future work (Cleanspace) and would like to work with JES again.Thank youAndrea

We are in the 19 month of an expected 3 month addition build and kitchen remodel. During the process major errors were made in our foundation for the addition that led to flooding and our new addition crawl space not even being able to pass inspection.Brian at JES came in and helped us understand everything that had gone wrong with the original foundation work by our contractor and then helped us create a plan with him and JES to fix everything and get it right.Brian came by the house regularly, checked on our needs, helped us with financing, and helped us prep for the work.Then Paul and team came in and in 2 days totally transformed but was called “the mud room” (our addition crawl space) to a place that could pass foundation inspections and was clean and usable storage space.I cannot say in words how grateful I am for JES and team. Not only did they do the work with excellence … they cared and excelled in listening to us and working with us to rectify a really challenging situation.Thank you JES !
