PROFESSIONAL FOUNDATION REINFORCEMENT SERVICES IN BOULDER
Foundation reinforcement is the process of strengthening and stabilizing the foundation of a building to prevent structural failure. At Van Matre Construction in Boulder, we are familiar with the warning signs of foundation issues and the various options available for foundation reinforcement.
The Warning Signs
It may be difficult to know for sure whether you need foundation reinforcement for your Boulder-area home, but there are some red flags to watch out for. Warning signs of foundation problems include:
- Cracks in walls or floors
- Doors and windows that stick or won’t close properly
- Gaps between the walls and ceiling or floor
- Bowing or leaning walls
- Sagging or uneven floors
- Water infiltration or moisture in the basement or crawl space
Boulder Foundation Reinforcement Services
Our team of foundation reinforcement professionals has experience with a wide range of products and reinforcement methods, including carbon fiber wall reinforcements, available in Boulder.
Carbon fiber wall reinforcement straps: These straps are made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) and are used to reinforce existing walls and foundations. They can be used to repair cracks and other damage, and they are lightweight and strong.
Tree root barriers: These barriers are placed around the perimeter of a foundation to prevent tree roots from growing underneath and causing damage.
Helical piers: These piers are screwed into the ground to provide additional support for the foundation. They are a good option for foundations that are built on unstable soil.
Push piers: These piers are driven into the ground to provide additional support for the foundation. They are a good option for foundations that are sinking or settling.
Wall anchors: These anchors are used to stabilize bowing or leaning walls. They are anchored into the ground and attached to the wall to provide additional support.
At Van Matre Construction, we assess the specific needs of each client and recommend the appropriate foundation reinforcement option for their Boulder home. The use of a combination of methods may also be recommended. Carbon fiber reinforcement straps and tree root barriers may be used together to address both wall and tree root problems. Push piers and helical piers may be used together for maximum foundation support. Additionally, Van Matre recommends regular inspections to ensure the foundation is stable and prevent any future issues from arising.
