The Importance of Foundation Support
Property owners must pay more attention to their home’s foundation until problems arise. However, it’s crucial to consider strengthening your foundation proactively. Over time, concerns like floods, wind forces, and soil erosion can compromise your property. Fortunately, most issues can be addressed to prevent catastrophic failures.
A house’s foundation supports everything within it. However, factors like shifting soil due to floods or earthquakes can lead to cracks and structural damage. Expanding moist soil exerts pressure on the concrete slab above, leaving it unsupported as the ground shrinks and dries.
When these changes and breaks occur, they jeopardize the integrity of your entire home. Repairing such damage can be expensive, but most existing structures can be reinforced. Seek advice from a structural engineer or professional foundation support provider for tailored solutions.
Signs You Need Foundation Support
Recognizing the strain on your foundation may be challenging, as most people must consider structural modifications. However, there are clear signs that indicate the need for foundation repairs:
Foundational Fissures: Cracks, both hidden and visible, are telltale signs of a compromised foundation. Invisible cracks are especially concerning as they indicate a more serious issue.
Warped Walls and Ceilings: Walls and ceilings that are no longer flush and flat may indicate a shift in the house’s structure, requiring attention.
Water Damage: Improper water drainage can lead to foundation damage. Concrete foundations can only tolerate so much moisture before cracking, making complete water damage restoration essential.
What We Offer
Our foundation support services include:
Underpinning: Increasing foundation depth or repairing significant cracks. Options include mass pour, screw piles, pile and beam, and piled raft.
Jacketing of Foundations: Strengthening columns, mainly when adding additional load to walls or extensions. A concrete jacket is added to the existing footings.
Mudjacking: Strengthening smaller footprint spaces, like steps and porches, with a cement mixture injected into the concrete through tiny holes.
House Lifting and Leveling: Elevating the house to prevent flood damage, involving hydraulic jacks or screw jacks to lift the structure.
Our approach is tailored to your specific needs, considering factors like the condition of the concrete slab, the balance of your house, and the soil type in your area. When necessary, we also provide foundation waterproofing to safeguard against water penetration.
Warped Walls and Ceilings
Water is frequently the cause of damage to foundations. A damaged foundation can result from improper water drainage away from the building. There is a limit to how much moisture can accumulate in concrete foundations before it starts to crack. Therefore getting complete water damage restoration is necessary

Here is what we will do to support your foundations
The depth of the foundation can be increased with this technique, or a foundation cracks repair is possible if it has sustained considerable damage. This technique can be the best action if the structure has cracks, especially visible and broader than 14 inches. There are numerous underlying options accessible, such as:
- Mass pour
- Screw piles and brackets
- Pile and beam
- Piled raft
Jacketing of Foundations
The jacketing of foundations is an additional technique you may hear. When columns need to be strengthened, this technique is employed and can be used for lally columns as well. This is a typical requirement when adding more load to the wall, as through extensions. Widening or strengthening the existing foundation could be essential to ensure the fence is sturdy enough to support this. To do this, the team creates a concrete jacket that is added to the building’s existing footings.
Mudjacking is a technique for strengthening the foundation of smaller footprint spaces, although it doesn’t use mud. Steps, tiny concrete surfaces, and porches are frequently utilized with it. In small holes the mixture is drilled into the concrete comprising of cement and other ingredients.
House Lifting and Leveling
It could be required to utilize house lifting to prevent flood damage. Although it is never easy, it may involve placing a hydraulic jack under the house and lifting it. This procedure, also known as “building jacketing,” consists of removing the building’s real structure from the base and raising it with screw jacks. It can be helpful when the system needs to be moved, or its foundation needs to be strengthened.
Contractors must always consider factors like the concrete slab’s state and the house’s balance. They must also consider the actual degree of the damage and the type of soil in the area. Almost always, a unique strategy works best. If there is fear of water penetration then utilizing foundation waterproofing may also be necessary.

5 Star Google & Home Advisor Reviews
I received a few quotes to get the walls in my home filled in with blown in insulation. Zavza Seal was affordable and they did an excellent job.
They were very concerned with cleaning up, which I appreciated. I felt the difference in my home immediately. No more freezing cold walls. I recommend them, hands down.
Our experience with Zavza Seal was wonderful and smooth. The crew is well organized. They listen to your plans. They showed out in time. They left everything clean. They did an amazing job! I highly recommend this company.
Efficient, courteous and responsible workers. The job was quoted as being completed in 2 days but more work was required and they returned on the 3rd day and completed the job without additional charges. They reinsulated my crawlspace (not an easy job). I recommend Zavza Seal without reservation.
Couldn’t be more satisfied with the job Zavza Seal did. Brendan and Jake were accommodating, fair and extremely knowledgeable. Their team worked incredibly hard that day under difficult conditions and did a great job. I manage a multi-unit HOA and we will definitely be using them again.
