We were contacted by the realtor for the customer, who was selling the home. The realtor, having done a great deal of work with us, knew to call Healthy Basement Systems right away regarding this estate home.
The walls of the foundation were bowing, and the client needed the house to look good so it would sell quickly. We stabilized all the basement walls with our heavy steel PowerBrace product, which will support the foundation for the life of the home. The walls were painted white, so they would look better, and the home sold quickly. Success!
This homeowner had their dryer vent going into the crawlspace which caused the joists to rot from longterm exposure to moisture. We replaced the rotted joists and installed SmartJacks to reinforce the above floors.
This before picture shows an unstable support of beam holding up the house in the center. We needed to replace the support beam with a new 2 by 6 beam and a post.
This homeowner was in need of a replacement support post. One of our SmartJacks will be the perfect substitute to properly support the floor above.
A SmartJack was installed in place of a wood pole that had been shimmied underneath a floor beam. The wood pole was not holding up the floors properly so the homeowner called Healthy to get help. The SmartJack will do a much better job at supporting their above floors.
This customer had bowing walls that needed support and to actually be pulled in and straightened. Even though we had to cut the driveway to get the anchors in, it was still a nice and neat job!
This shed was acting as a retaining wall and had severely bowed. Bowing happens when walls experience pressure so great that they are unable to hold up against it. The homeowner was looking to save the shed for storage and at the same time keep the retaining wall intact. We repaired these walls with the PowerBrace Foundation Wall Repair System from Foundation Supportworks.
This customer was having issues with a bowing foundation. The owner of Healthy Basemernt Systems, Bill Simone, personally assisted this customer with his foundation issues.
With these GEO-Locks in place, the customer will never have to worry about his foundation again! All our products are guaranteed for the life of the home, with a written guarantee that transfers from owner to new owner. The customer's home is now safe from potential damage often caused by a settling or cracking foundation.
This homeowner was looking to sell their home but needed to make some improvements first. We remediated mold and improved the support in their crawl space.
Here is a cracked support beam that was making the floors sag and creek above it. The homeowners wanted to walk above their crawl space in peace! We installed SmartJack support posts to fix their sagging floors.
Now that you know you have the right company with the right solutions the next question is how long will it take. The good news is that a typical home foundation repair usually takes less than a week to finish. But don't misjudge speed with sloppy work. Our systems come with a written warranty giving you peace of mind that your home was repaired properly.
Our goal is also not just to prevent further damage to the foundation but to actually restore it. After all issues like stair-step foundation cracks, buckling walls, and sagging floors destroy your home's value. Our goal is to return your home to its original position and structure. We restore the value of your home, not just abate further loss. We offer permanent solutions to your structural issues.
The first step of our repair process is running a thorough inspection of your home. For free, we will have one of our inspectors come to your home to properly diagnose the problem before you plan on any work. Your home is your greatest investment and we are here to help you protect it. Get started with a free, no-obligation inspection & estimate.
Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle inward when the force against them exceeds their ability to withstand this pressure.
Failing foundation walls will crack and leak, and if you have a finished basement, they can lead to cracks in the finished walls. Bowing walls may eventually collapse and should be addressed right away.
We repair bowing walls from the outside with our Geo-Lock Foundation Wall Anchor System.
When outside access is not possible, we recommend our PowerBrace™ I-Beam System.
Our solutions will do more than simply stop inward movement -- they can also be used to straighten the walls back to their original position.

Foundation settlement occurs when the soils underneath a foundation are unable to support the weight of the structure that's resting on them.
A settling foundation will mean a great deal of damage to your home -- including cracked foundation walls, cracked drywall, doors and windows out of square, and tilting chimneys. As foundation damage goes unaddressed, it will become more difficult to repair.
Supportworks' line of foundation piers are a great option for repairing sinking structures of all types.
These sturdy, corrosion-resistant piers can stabilize and lift your foundation back to a stable position -- permanently!

Floors over crawl spaces begin to sink in three scenarios: When there are too few supports, when the supports begin to sink into the ground, and when the structural wood holding up your floor begins to rot and grow mold.
When crawl space structures experience settlement, the entire home above can begin to show damage. Drywall will crack, doors will stick and floors will become uneven. If the crawl space is damaged by mold, there may also be moldy, musty odors upstairs.
Rugged steel supports like Supportworks' SmartJack® Crawl Space Support System can quickly restore your structure. If your structure was sinking due to mold and rot, your crawl space should also be dehumidified and encapsulated to prevent further damage.
