As a homeowner, you protect the things that you can see inside and outside your house. Knowing what's underneath is even more important as it holds the structural foundation of your home. The foundation walls, piers, and retaining walls are there to provide a stable base for the rest of the home. If any of these are failing to do their job, the structural integrity of the home is compromised. And, the longer problems are neglected the more costly the repair may become.
What causes foundation problems?
Foundation problems can be caused by the changing conditions of the soil under your home. Expansive soils, such as clay, absorbs moisture causing it to expand, and then shrinks as it dries. This can cause foundations to move, settle and crack. Also, termite damage to floor joist and framing can cause symptoms of a failing foundation. We look for all possible conditions under your home.
Why do I have cracks near the corner of my doors and openings?
A foundation pier under that area of your home could be failing. Unable to support the weight of the home, stress cracks will start to appear at the corners of doors, windows, and wall openings. Getting a proper inspection of your home's foundation, structure, and soil moisture content can provide the answer you need.
How do I know if my home's foundation is failing?
Inside the house, you may be noticing cracks in your walls and ceilings, gaps around doors and windows, sticking doors and windows, or sloped floors. Outside, you could have stair-step cracks in the brick walls, cracks in concrete floors and foundation. These could be signs that your home's foundation is not properly supporting the load of the house. We can inspect your home and foundation to determine the cause and provide a proper solution to fix the issues.
Does the weather have anything to do with my house settling?
Seasonal Weather Changes - dry and wet weather cycles - produce a constantly changing soil bed under your home’s foundation. The expansion and contraction of the soil can weaken the support for your foundation resulting in settling and cracking.
Should I hire a structural engineer before any work is done?
While a structural engineer is not required by code before a repair, Advanced Structural Repair can help obtain the services of a reputable engineering firm.
Can my foundation be repaired without doing more damage to the walls, ceilings, or bathroom tile?
The solution for a sloping floor or cracked wall typically requires lifting the section of the house where the failed foundation is located. Sometimes, damage to existing walls can be done by lifting that section of the house. Tile, especially in older homes, is extremely easy to break. We appreciate a home's character and features and will take extra precaution to minimize additional damage to your home.

Bob in Raleigh, NC
Drew and his team were meticulous in their work and got the job done right on time. He even spotted a critical flaw in our foundation that
the structural engineer missed - saving me the headache and extra dollars down the road. Hopefully, I won't need to hire him again, but
he'll be my choice if I ever need foundation work in the future.
Andrew in Durham, NC
We were scared when we had a pretty serious structural problem. Drew took the time to really explain everything to us in detail. When the job
was finished, everything went exactly like he said it would. We were extremely pleased.
Stacy in Durham, NC
I wanted you to know that Drew and his team just finished two days of work in our basement repairing the concrete issues that we had
discussed. We were very pleased with them, their work, their professionalism and their willingness to ensure our total satisfaction.
They did everything we expected, and left the place in a very clean and organized state. Thank you for recommending them.
Catherine in Raleigh, NC
I was in the middle of selling my home when the home inspector found some structural damage in my crawl space. I contacted Drew on a Saturday to set up a time to come out and give me a quote. Drew was eager to see my troubles and offer a possible solution. He came out and looked at my home the same day and gave me my solution on the spot. The same day I got my quote and we agreed on a date for repair . Drew stayed in contact with me in the weeks leading up to his teams arrival. Upon arrival Drew and his team were friendly and professional. The work was completed on time and clean. The next day Drew and I did a complete walk through of the work they completed. I would recommend Drew and his staff to anyone needing structural repair.
