Grand Junction Foundation Repair

Although a wet basement and musty crawl space are common in Grand Junction, the number one foundation problem plaguing most homeowners by far is structural issues. The area’s poor soil conditions and complicated climate are to blame for the problem. 

If you’re noticing cracked bricks, bowed basement walls, a cracked chimney, or floor and wall gaps, you’re certainly not alone, but you need to address these problems soon before they get worse and threaten your home’s structural integrity. Ignoring foundation problems can not only mean increased repair costs, but you also risk as much as 30 percent of your home’s value. 

There are permanent solutions to solve your cracked floor, sticking doors and windows, or drywall cracks. Groundworks Grand Junction has been working with homeowners in the area since 2005; during this time, we have developed customized solutions adapted to succeed even in Grand Junction’s troublesome conditions. 

Contact one of our local experts to learn more about our pier systems or our basement wall systems. The friendly office staff will schedule a time and date that works best for you.

What Causes Foundation Repair Problems?

At this point, you may understand that foundation problems are common in Grand Junction and the climate and soil are to blame—but how? 

Grand Junction’s soil type is bentonite clay. Although most clay soil is problematic for foundation, bentonite clay is especially so. This volatile soil absorbs water easily and expands quickly, requiring more space and adding pressure to foundation walls. Adversely, during times of drought, which are so common in the Grand Junction area, bentonite soil shrinks, losing much of its size and creating voids. These voids mean your foundation is not properly supported, causing it to shift and sink. 

It’s this movement that creates many of the problem signs homeowners recognize at their homes, like cracked brickwork and drywall cracks. Since a home never settles evenly, you’re noticing the effects of a foundation that has already begun to fail. This is why it’s important to address problems as soon as you spot them. Without intervention, the problem won’t resolve itself; however, a trained professional with local experience and expertise can help. 

Our proven solutions are customized to solve even the most complicated foundation problems. Our local experts will do a full inspection of your home and suggest the right repair for a permanent solution.

Learn more below about a few of the solutions your Groundworks Grand Junction inspector may recommend. 

Push Piers

Perhaps the most common foundation repair solution in the area is push piers. Push piers support your home’s foundation from beneath. Commonly known as underpinning, these piers are driven deep into the stable bedrock soil beneath your home to permanently stabilize and potentially lift the foundation back to its original position. When a lift is achieved, it has the potential to close cracks created by the original settlement. 

There are several types of piers, push, helical, and slab piers. Your local Groundworks Grand Junction inspector will recommend the right pier to fit your home’s needs. You can breathe easy knowing most foundation settlement can be repaired using one of the three piers suggested. 

Wall Anchors 3D

Wall Anchors

Bentonite clay near and beneath your home expands and puts pressure on your foundation walls, causing them to bow inward and fail. Groundworks Grand Junctions’ wall anchors work to bypass the troublesome soil near your home and anchor to stable soil a few feet away from the foundation. Tension is able to stabilize and, in some cases, even return the wall back to its original position. 

After installation, your walls are no longer at risk of movement, and the job can usually be completed in a day or two, depending on the size of your foundation. 

IntelliBrace™ Beam System

For walls that are not as severely damaged or when property lines prohibit the use of wall anchors, IntelliBraceTM Beam System offers stabilization entirely from inside your home. The IntelliBraceTM Beam System is best used when symptoms of wall failure are recently discovered and threaten the structural stability of your home. This solution requires no access to the outside wall and attach at the top and the bottom of the wall. Wall straightening can be achieved but is realized over time as the beam is tightened.
