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.

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. Schedule your free, no-obligation inspection to learn how Groundworks Grand Junction can help.

Proven, Warrantied Foundation Repair Solutions in Grand Junction
Our team of inspectors and technicians understand the frustration Grand Junction homeowners feel when they discover a foundation problem. Rest assured, calling an expert and choosing to solve the problem sooner rather than later is not only smart for the safety of your home but also cost-effective.
Learn more below about a few of the solutions your Groundworks Grand Junction inspector may recommend.
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.
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.
Crawl Space Supports
If you’re having problems with sagging floors above your crawl space, you may need better crawl space supports. How do you maximize your crawl space support system with SettleStop IntelliJack™?
Basement Wall Reinforcement
Carbon fiber basement wall reinforcement can be a useful tool for stabilizing your foundation walls. Why might experts recommend this solution for your home?
Helical piers are a great repair tool for sinking foundations. How can helical piers benefit your home?
Wall Repair System
Cracking and bowing foundation walls can be repaired if you catch the problem in time. If you’re wondering how an expert can fix these walls, the SettleStop IntelliBrace™ wall repair system could work for you.
Push piers are a specific underpinning solution that may be beneficial for your settling foundation. How can these durable piers protect your home?
Wall anchors can help strengthen your foundation so it doesn’t fail. What can you get out of wall anchors in your home overall?
When it comes to problems with your slab foundation, slab piers are one of the best repairs experts can recommend. Here’s what you know about using slab piers.
