Denver Foundation Repair

Colorado is known for many things, the breathtaking scenery and mild weather being just a couple. However, homeowners in Denver understand that as much as the weather can be pleasant, it also causes problems for the foundation of their homes. With so many homes struggling with issues like cracked basement walls, a tilting chimney, or bowing walls, it is easy to think they are no big deal. But the opposite is true.  

Basement walls that bow inward, exterior foundation cracks, and nail pops are signs of a severe problem stealing value from your home and putting your safety at risk if left untreated.  

It can be overwhelming as a homeowner when facing these problems. The good news, Groundworks can help. With more than 20 years of experience assisting Denver homeowners with their foundation problems, we’re dedicated to finding a permanent solution with a long-term, transferable warranty and financing options.

What Causes Foundation Repair Problems?

Although it is often overlooked, your foundation is one of the most important elements of your home. It is literally the structure that the rest of your home is built upon. So, it’s no wonder foundation problems cause Denver homeowners such frustration. Regardless of whether you live above a basement, crawl space, or on a concrete slab, foundation issues typically occur because of the type of soil in Denver and the area’s weather conditions.  

Although construction errors make up a small percentage of the foundation damage seen by foundation contractors in Denver, it’s the area’s clay loam soil and significantly less than average rainfall that combine to cause problems.  

Soil with a high percentage of clay can wreak havoc on your home because of its expansive properties. When wet, the minerals absorb water easily and expand; during dry periods, the soil shrinks, leaving large voids. Since Denver’s average rainfall ranges from 15 to 20 inches annually, well below the 38-inch national average, the main problem Denver homeowners face is foundation settlement due to the voids created.  

Your home isn’t properly supported with a void beneath and will sink, often unevenly. This uneven settlement causes many of the problem signs you notice, like uneven floors, window gaps, and drywall cracks. Repairing foundation problems as early as possible will reduce the need for additional repairs caused by the underlying support problem.

Common Causes of Foundation Problems

Proven, Warrantied Foundation Repair Solutions in Denver 

Trust the experts at Groundworks if you notice foundation cracks, sticking doors and windows, or uneven floors. They work tirelessly to restore your home so you can rest assured your home is protected. Our cutting-edge repair methods offer not only foundation stabilization but may be able to restore your foundation to its original position. Learn more about the solutions our local Groundworks inspector may suggest.  

Helical Piers

Helical piers stabilize your home by shifting the weight of the home from unstable, volatile soil to triple-galvanized steel helical piers driven deep into the bedrock beneath your home. Helical piers have an innovative design. Essentially they twist into the ground, providing anchoring strength to prevent future settlement and, in some cases, even lift your foundation back to its original position. 

This permanent solution will not corrode or bend and comes with a long-term warranty. It addresses the root of the problem by bypassing the problematic soil and relying on the stable bedrock beneath.  

Push Piers

Another option to prevent foundation settlement as a result of failing clay soil and dry weather conditions is push piers. These galvanized steel piers are driven through a bracket mounted on your home’s foundation footing to competent soil or bedrock below.  

Once installation is complete, your home is immediately stabilized, and a lift can be attempted. Push piers offer long-term peace of mind, a warranty and restore your home’s curb appeal since they are not visible once the repair is complete.  

Wall Anchors 3D

Wall Anchors 

Since Denver’s clay loam soil is also prone to expanding when saturated, another common problem homeowners face is bowing basement walls due to hydrostatic pressure. Wall anchors provide stabilization and potential movement by anchoring your foundation wall to the hard-packed virgin soil beyond your foundation. 

Triple galvanized steel plates are installed and can be tightened over time to help pull back walls to their original position. Installation can be performed year-round with little landscaping disturbance, and the plates can be covered by basement finishing for a complete out-of-mind, out-of-sight finish.

I called Groundworks to level my driveway and repair the back patio. They came out and gave me a fair quote told me how they would fix the areas. They were on time and completed the job in just a few hours. Happy Homeowner! they did excellent work I was very impressed. After a couple of months to me it just didn't look right. I wanted them to come out and fix it under warranty. I thought it would be a real hassle to get them to fix it to my likening. So, I called them, and they said no problem be out tomorrow to fix the issues. They arrived on time and an hour later they were finished! Happy Customer! You can't go wrong with Ground Works.

My sump pump went out and I did not realize it until late on a Friday night. 1/3 of my basement had standing water in it. I called and left a message Friday night around 10:30, knowing that they were closed on Saturday. However, first thing Saturday morning, they called me and were able to be out before 9 am. They fixed the problem and even cleaned up the standing water. They recommended ways to dry up the carpet faster. Ryan was very professional and not pushy at all. I really appreciate this business and will use them in the future for all my basement needs.

I had 2 crawl spaces in my home encapsulated by Complete Basement Systems. Phil Haggerty was the contact person and did a very thorough inspection of both spaces and found an issue we were not expecting. He did not put any pressure on us to use his business and was very good at answering questions, addressing concerns. He returned calls the same day, if I didn't talk to him when I called. HIs crew- 2 gentlemen both named Jose, were very professional and friendly. They covered the entire path from the basement to the garage with plastic to keep everything neat. They showed up on time, worked the whole day and did a great job. I would recommend using CBS.

Edgar and Isaiah did a fantastic job leveling the columns supporting my front porch and roof. This was after a crew had tried but failed to complete the job several years earlier. They showed up exactly when they said they would, talked to me to make sure they understood exactly what I wanted done, and then got right to work. They let me know when they were ready to start raising the columns so that I could watch the progress and let them know when the porch was at the level I wanted. Even though they were short-handed, they got the job done quickly. I am very happy with the job they did.Brooks Myers

Carlos Castillo came out to do my bench marking after my job was completed. He was courteous, thorough, answered all the questions I had, and was just the nicest guy! I signed up for the 5 year bench mark to be done to make sure that the movement of my house is corrected, and would be thrilled if he was assigned to do that for me for the future. I highly recommend Carlos!

I had this company come give me an estimate for raising my back porch cement slabs that had fallen away from my house for years. A very nice guy named Peyton Peeples has been my contact person. He is very knowledgeable in what needed to be done. Every time I contacted him, he was quick to respond to all my concerns and questions.About a month ago, I had the company come and do the work. They were quick and cleaned up wonderfully after done. The guy that came and did the work was named Tyler Moorehead. He walked me through everything his team was going to do and made sure I understood and agreed with him. After the work was done, he went over everything.My porch looks SO much better!! They lifted it, filled in all the cracks, and caulked the whole thing so it looks neat and tidy. I'm not embarrassed anymore to have people see my back porch. THANK YOU!!!

I am a property manager, and foundation issues on homes are the last thing anyone in my position wants to deal with. Fortunately I worked with Mike Kilduff to get my foundation repair taken care of. Mike was incredibly communicative and made sure to check in with me every step of the way. As the work started on my home, I was also fortunate to add Armando to my project team, as the foreman for the job. He and his crew worked hard and did a great job, they even closed some very big gaps in my brickwork, which is never something that can be guaranteed. I fully intend to use Complete Basement Systems / Groundworks for another property, and will certainly refer them to all of my contacts.

Matt Daily is a wonderful, professional, humerous, warm, easy to communicate with individual. All the positive accolades you can imagine are applicable to Matt. If the Complete Basement Systems install goes as well as Matt's presentation, we will be extremely pleased, and entering an additional review afterward. Had we not entered into a Contract for services, we would still have acquired a new life-long friend in Matt Daily.
