Reasons To Repair

Repairing Your Foundation is Worth the Expense

If your home has foundation issues, it can lead to problems that are dangerous and expensive. You need to work with an expert to ensure the problem is fixed in a timely and cost-effective manner. B-Level can walk you through the problems with your foundation and the benefits of repairing the damages.

Problems will get worse

When you repair damages, you resolve safety concerns, keep problems from getting worse, minimize potential future expenses, and avoid hurting the resale value of the property.

Safety Concerns

If the soil below your foundation is shifting, you’re facing a serious problem. If there’s an emergency, it can be difficult to easily and effectively exit your home. It can also allow water to seep in underneath the floor, leading to mold or mildew growth.

Resale Value

It’s hard to sell a home with a foundation problem. When potential buyers see cracks in the walls, heaving floors, mold, and doors and windows that won’t shut properly, they’re not interested in taking on these problems! The value that’s lost and the safety risks posed are convincing reasons why homeowners shouldn’t leave foundation problems unattended.

Carbon Fiber

    B-level uses carbon fiber as a popular alternative to steel beams for reinforcing structural walls in homes or businesses. Carbon fiber is the strongest solution on the market because it ties to the foundation base and the house framing.

    We fasten the material to the base of the wall using a galvanized bracket and secure it to the foundation floor with a carbon fiber pin. Because carbon fiber is secured to the foundation wall, it allows even distribution of outside pressure.

    With carbon fiber, it’s a clean and fast installation! There’s no digging into the yard and the final finish is smooth, flat and can easily be painted over for a seamless look. Here’s a closer look at the Advantages of Carbon Fiber:

  • Cost-effective
  • Nonobstructive, lays flat to the wall
  • The inclusion of Kevlar provides additional strength
  • The grid is fully encapsulated in epoxy, anchoring it in place
  • Able to conform to bowed walls
  • Can be painted for a smooth, clean look
  • Quick installation
  • Plumbing, electric, and other ceiling obstructions can oftentimes be avoided
  • Manufacturer’s Lifetime Warranty

Steel Beams

Another way to add strength to failing foundations is steel beams. B-Level uses a primer-finished, W4x13 steel beam. Our team fills gaps behind the beams with hydraulic cement, open cracks in the walls are tuck-pointed, beams are cemented into the floor, and the steel is fastened to the home.

    Steel Beam Advantages

  • Cost-effective
  • Engineer approved
  • Most commonly accepted form of wall reinforcement
  • Proven history
  • Prevents shearing, tilting and bowing
  • 25 Year Warranty
  • B-Level does not believe in high-pressure sales tactics and will work with licensed engineers in your area to get the job done right.

Pre-construction Piers

Pre-construction piers or piles are easy and cost-effective to install. They can increase the value of a new home or building by preventing settlement or heaving before it even starts! By monitoring hydraulic pressure, these piles are load-tested as they’re put into place. The capacity of each pile is accurately measured using installation torque and can be installed in any weather.

Driven Steel Piers

A driven pier, push pier or driven pile, is a steel shaft that provides foundation support for several types of structures. RamJack steel piers are used to transfer loads near the ground’s surface to deeper, load-bearing levels below. The piers are made of high-strength carbon steel tubing and are hydraulically driven into place using special equipment. These piles are most often used to underpin distressed, or settling foundations, on homes and commercial buildings. The steel is specially coated to avoid corrosion.

Helical Piers

    Helical piers or helical piles are like giant, steel screws used to secure structures to the ground. You might’ve also heard them referred to as helix piers, screw piles, or torque anchors. The piles are driven into the ground much like a drill drives a screw into a piece of wood. Helical piles are used in several residential and commercial construction applications, including:

  • Foundation Repair
  • Tilt walls
  • Retaining walls
  • Basement walls
  • Both lightweight structures as well as industrial use
  • Porches
  • Pier and beam homes
  • Solar Panels
  • Wind Turbines
  • Bridges

Used instead of concrete pilings, helicals need minimal machinery to place and can be done in tighter spaces. Unlike concrete, helical piers can be installed in any weather and can be loaded right away, instead of waiting on concrete to cure.

Why Foundations Fail

There are a number of factors that put stress on your foundation. Unfortunately, most of them are out of your control.

I had B-Level raise our front porch stoop and sidewalk. They were able to schedule me within two days, and showed up first thing in the morning. The work only took a couple of hours with minimal disruption of our day. They took care not to damage any of the landscaping or plants on either side of the sidewalk, and when they left there was no sign that they had been there (other than the holes that were drilled to pump the slurry below the concrete walk and stoop) and the stoop and walk had been raised almost to their original height, and were level! They came back several days later and applied concrete caulk to seal a couple of seams and the work was done quickly and professionally. I would recommend them, and will use them in the future if needed.read more

They did exactly what we wanted done at a reasonable price. They communicated well, showed up on time both times they came, and cleaned up nicely afterwards. This is a very professional company and I recommend them highly.read more

It is amazing what a company like B-Level can do. I never imagined my concrete side walk could be resurrected. My only thought was to brake it up and start all over. B-Level brought a cost effective solution that did not brake the bank and looks very good. Just so you know, those who need a lift call B-Level!read more

Service performed was excellent and at a fair price. Gave me recommendations on how to save some $ by performing some minor service myself.

I found B-Level online, and then asked a realtor friend about his experience with them, and he assured me that they did excellent work. They were courteous and helpful on my initial phone call, and they followed up with me both by phone and email. I sent them photos of my sidewalk, front door step, driveway and garage floor. They sent me back a diagram showing where they could work along with a very reasonable estimate. They arrived on time (15 minutes early) and they were careful to further assess and understand the situation. They were very professional... I could immediately recognize that they were a very experienced work crew. They leveled the sidewalk and lifted my sinking front step. Well done. Then they lifted both sides of the driveway to eliminate a “bump up” where the drive met the garage floor. It's now a smooth transition. In the attached garage they nearly performed a miracle, lifting one side of the garage floor that had cracked and settled nearly two inches over a 20 year period. They also filled some hollow sounding voids under the floor to help prevent more settling. Previously, I thought I was facing a very expensive total tear-out and replacement of the garage floor, but B-Level fixed it quickly at a fraction of the replacement cost. They cleaned up throughly, including washing out the garage floor and nicely filling the drill holes with precision. A professional job from start to finish. I highly recommended their services, they did an awesome job.read more
