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 Denver can help.

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 Denver 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 Denver 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.
