Struggling with shifting or cracking foundation walls?
Does your basement show signs of cracking? Do you get water in the basement when it rains? Does your foundation look like it’s caving in?
If you answered yes to any of those questions it might be time to brace your basement. By “bracing” we mean to stabilize your basement with steel braces so that the weight of your home can be properly supported. The process includes jack hammering out concrete, installing steel beams along the walls of your basement, bolting them down to the floor joists and sealing them in floor with concrete.
Not only will bracing your basement this fix the immediate problem of foundation movement, often due to the changing water levels in Regina’s soil, but Basement Bracing will also prevent any further damage to your home’s foundation.
The Regina “Gumbo” that’s no good for your house’s foundation
It’s no secret that the Regina land that we live on likes to shift and move on us. The “gumbo” as folks call it is NOT a good foundation to put a home on. More and more people will be using piles to put their foundation on or bracing will be an option in the future.
We’ve seen them all from the basement foundation that has barely moved to the protruding wall where we can’t brace until the wall is pushed back into its original location.
