Lexington Foundation Repair
Bowing walls, a sinking house and cracked concrete floors could mean that your house or business has foundation issues.
United Structural Systems Ltd., Inc. in Lexington, KY has a trained team ready to evaluate your home or business, and give you a free estimate. We specialize in foundation repair, waterproofing and wall realignment. Every foundation is different and our team is vigorously trained to handle any foundation and can work with you to determine the best way to lift and stabilize your commercial or residential property.
United Structural Systems, Ltd., Inc. provides vertical and lateral application of support material to lift and support your foundation, as well as guard against future damage. Waterproofing could entail encasing the exterior wall or installing a drainage system to remove the water. We offer other services, including slab repair brackets, retrofit brick ties, and benchmarking. No matter what kind of commercial foundation repair needs you have, our expert foundation repair team can help you and your business.
Any vertical settlement to your commercial foundation should be addressed with vertical applications by USS KY. Our vertical foundation repair solutions include auger cast piles, caissons, aggregate piers, helical pull-down micropiles, and more.
Lateral applications are best applied to foundation settlement caused by horizontal movement in the soil your building sits on. We often use different kinds of tie-backs to anchor structures back into place and prevent further movement. Whether you need helical tie-backs, soil nailing, slope stabilization or other lateral solutions, we can assess the damage and figure out the perfect choice.
If you’ve avoided water damage so far it doesn’t mean your commercial building isn’t at risk of it in the future - waterproofing is a great preventative measure. Avoid the damage to goods as well as your building itself by preventing any moisture infiltration with waterproofing from USS KY.
We are proud of the variety and quality of the commercial services we offer. In addition to the services already mentioned, we also do:
- Pressure grouting, also known as mudjacking, where we lift concrete slabs by drilling small holes and pumping in a grout to lift the slab back into place.
- Polyfoam injections for concrete leveling are similar to pressure grouting, only instead of a concrete grout, we pump in high-density polyurethane foam that will expand and lift the concrete into place.
- Helical slab repair brackets, which are a type of steel pier that is dug deep into the soil to stabilize concrete slabs with heavy loads.
- Retrofit brick ties were originally designed to reinforce brick walls of flooded buildings. Installed from the interior walls and anchored in place, they can be used in any interior renovation of masonry walls.
Foundations can weaken or loosen their support over time. Foundation repair is never the same house to house. Our experts can handle your foundation issues with professionalism, knowledge, and experience. Wall realignment may be necessary for properties with bowing walls or where the soil has shifted to press against your wall, making it curve inward, causing cracks in drywall, cement, and brick. We can waterproof a house by encasing the exterior wall of your foundation to prevent water from entering the basement or crawl space, or installing a drainage system to redirect surface and groundwater.
Not all support issues are found in the foundation. Structural support may be necessary for properties with support beams, joists, and columns in crawl spaces that are damaged by time or nature. Repairing your structural system will save you stress in the long run, so let our team of experts help you out and relieve some stress. United Structural Systems can repair or replace these parts as they get older or shift out of place.
We offer permanent solutions to your residential foundation problems. Homes both old and new all deal with foundation problems and letting them get worse over time just increases your damages and the cost of fixing it all. Call us today for a free estimate.
If your sinking, shifting foundation has lead to your walls coming out of alignment - whether that is through bowing walls, retaining walls coming separate from connecting walls, or tilted walls throughout your home - we have the best options for wall realignment.
Don’t let water take away your peace of mind or precious mementos. Feel the security of having a completely waterproofed basement with waterproofing by USS KY. If your basement has flooded already it absolutely will flood again, or you can head off any potential damage by getting waterproofing done prior to any water infiltration.
Don’t let your home’s concrete become a trip hazard for your family, guests, or just an unlucky passerby on your sidewalk. Protect safety and your home’s curb appeal with pressure grouting concrete leveling. Known also as slabjacking or mudjacking, this tried-and-true method of concrete repair will permanently level your residential concrete slab.
While the home’s foundation is the basis of stability, the superstructure is vulnerable and needs to be secured as well. Issues in the superstructure can arise from too much moisture, pests, bad ventilation, or poor initial construction.
