Residential Foundation Contractors in Charlotte

For most people, their home is their biggest investment and their most important asset. While homes are much more than the structural elements that compose them, these elements — from the concrete foundation and the chimney to the retaining walls and more — are critical to the integrity, safety, and value of any home.

At Carolina Foundation Solutions, we’re skilled at repairing and reinforcing these essential components of residential properties. Whether you need an expert to assess the condition of a foundation slab or it’s time for extensive repairs to basement and retaining walls, we’re the experts you can trust for the highest-quality services and lasting solutions. We will never sacrifice quality or cut corners, and our fully certified experts only use the industry’s best products, equipment, and materials.

Our residential services include:

  • Concrete slab repair: At CFS, our goal is to provide the best-fit foundation repair options to restore our clients’ slabs in the most efficient, reliable, and cost-effective manner possible.
  • Foundation repair: Although the cause for the movement within the soils (and consequently the foundation) can vary, the most common and most effective solution deemed necessary typically consists of installing underpinning helical piers.
  • Chimney repair: The installation of underpinning helical piers is a proven method of repairing chimneys that are leaning and/or have experienced settlement.
  • Basement wall repair and reinforcement: The most common and most effective methods of repairing bowing basement walls in Charlotte are installing carbon fiber reinforcement straps and/or installing helical tieback anchors (wall anchors).
  • Retaining wall repair and reinforcement: Depending on the type of retaining wall, installing carbon fiber reinforcement straps can be a very effective repair for bowing retaining walls. With this method, carbon fiber reinforcement straps are applied directly to the face of the wall to provide reinforcement and stabilize the wall.

How Do You Know if Your Home May Need Foundation Repair

Here are signs your home may need foundation repair:

  1. Doors and windows are sticking shut; they don’t open and shut like they used to
  2. Cracks in the interior walls on the drywall, as well as cracks on the outside of your home
  3. Gaps between crown molding and the ceiling
  4. Gaps between caulking and windows or doors
  5. Sunken floors or a sinking foundation
  6. Patios that have pulled away from your home
  7. Wallpaper creases and wrinkles
  8. Nail pops (small, cracked circles where the nail pulls away from the drywall or sheetrock)
  9. Sloping of floors
  10. Bowed basement walls

What Causes Cracks in Concrete Slabs?

Residential concrete slabs are durable and long-lasting. As concrete ages, however, it dries and shrinks. This can cause foundations to crack.

Minor cracks in a concrete slab may not cause significant damage. Whether they warrant immediate attention will depend on:

  • The magnitude or width of cracks
  • The presence of vertical displacement along the cracks

Along with aging, slab settling or sinking is another reason foundation slabs crack. This occurs when the soil beneath a concrete foundation moves, which can occur with:

  • Drought conditions
  • Heavy rainfall
  • Drainage issues
  • Slab leaks (from the water or sewer lines below or within a slab)
  • Consolidation of backfilled soils that were poorly compacted
  • Decomposition or decay of soil materials
  • Soil erosion
  • And more

Commercial Foundation Contractors in Charlotte

In addition to residential services, CFS also provides a wide range of commercial services for several types of properties throughout the Charlotte, NC, area. Our commercial services cover all sorts of repair, installation, and reinforcement work, including:

  • Boardwalk, walkway, and bridge foundation reinforcement: When these structures are located in places with poor soil, strong foundations are a necessity. CHANCE helical anchors and piles are our most commonly used solutions.
  • Concrete slab repair and replacement: Our methods for repairing concrete slabs include pressure grouting, polyurethane foam injection, carbon fiber reinforcement, and more.
  • Deep foundation system installation: Through the use of CHANCE helical piles, we can stabilize your structure with the same performance as traditional deep foundations without the high mobilization costs.
  • Earth retention services: Carolina Foundation Solutions can temporarily or permanently retain, support, reinforce, and secure soil masses surrounding your project. Our solutions can be installed quickly, even where access is limited.

  • Seawall and marine construction, shoring, and repair: If you need lateral stability for new or existing bulkheads and seawalls, Caroline Foundation Solutions can get the job done. Helical tieback anchors have proven highly effective in this application. Plus, they can be tensioned and tested immediately with no cure time required.
  • Underpinning system installation: Lack of stability within the supporting soil can lead to foundation settlement. Our underpinning services shore up and protect your foundation from further damage.
  • Wall reinforcement and repair: Our high-end carbon reinforcement materials can strengthen and repair bowing walls, shifting corners, and cracking concrete columns. We also implement CHANCE helical tieback anchors as a reliable and effective solution for anchoring walls.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very professional and knowledgeable. Work on our foundation was completed in a timely manner and as painlessly as possible. Also, the transferable life of structure warranty provided with the repairs was very helpful when it came time for us to sell our home. I would absolutely do business with them again and I recommend them to any of my friends who find themselves in need of foundation repairs.
