Foundation Raising & Leveling
If your foundation is settling, broken, leaning, or unstable, our foundation system is the answer. At R&R Foundation Specialist, we have worked on countless homes around the Seattle, Bellevue, and Everett areas, ensuring our clients’ homes regain the necessary stability that is threatened when your foundation settles, cracks, or breaks. If you are experiencing cracks in concrete walls, or floors that flex or are not level, your foundation may be in need of proper repair and restoration services.
Most foundation damage occurs when the soil, upon which the foundation was poured, settles. Our system drives steel piers all the way down to solid bedrock, which then push your foundation back up to its original level where it belongs. We’ve invested in the foundation-leveling industry’s most effective equipment, which aids us in providing a solution for just about any condition.
The ability to add strength to a crack repair has significant benefits. Once a crack develops and moisture is able to get to the reinforcing steel, corrosion can begin. As corrosion progresses, it worsens the condition of the concrete around the reinforcing steel. In order to repair these areas, the deteriorated concrete needs to be removed and the rebar corrosion needs to be addressed. If the rebar corrosion process is not completely stopped, the expansion of the steel can cause the patch to fail. One method to reinforce cracks related to corroded rebar is to wrap the repaired areas with a bi-directional carbon fiber. This will provide confining strength over the repair and make up for any section loss due to corrosion.
We use a special carbon fiber application designed specifically for strengthening of concrete and masonry corners. Foundation corners often require repair and reinforcement. If rebar is missing, damaged, or deteriorated, carbon fiber can be added to an existing structure in order to provide the necessary tensile capacities related to a specific load pattern.
- Provides strength across the patch
- Addresses section loss
- Adds strength in the direction of the reinforcing steel
