Foundation Services for Homeowners in Hickory
If you're like many of our valued customers, your home is your most significant investment and most precious asset. The integrity, safety, and value of your home are deeply rooted in its structural elements, starting with the foundation.
At Carolina Foundation Solutions, we keep your family safe by skillfully repairing and reinforcing those crucial structural elements of residential properties. Local to the Carolinas, we're the experts you can trust for the highest-quality services and lasting solutions. Our fully certified experts only use the industry's best products, equipment, and materials to ensure quality and, ultimately, your safety and peace of mind.
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 or have experienced settlement.
- Basement wall reinforcement: Hickory's most effective method of reinforcing bowing basement walls is installing carbon fiber reinforcement straps or helical tieback anchors.
- Retaining wall reinforcement: Depending on the retaining wall, installing helical tieback anchors can effectively stabilize bowing retaining walls.
Signs Your Home May Need Foundation Repair
Your home may need foundation repair if you notice any of these signs:
- Doors and windows that are sticking shut; they don't open and close like they used to
- Cracks in the interior walls on the drywall, as well as cracks on the outside of your home
- Gaps between crown molding and the ceiling
- Gaps between caulking and windows or doors
- Sunken floors or a sinking foundation

Commercial Foundation Contractors in the Hickory Area
In addition to residential services, CFS also provides a wide range of commercial services for several types of properties throughout the Hickory, NC, area. Our commercial services cover all sorts of repair, installation, and reinforcement work, including:
- Boardwalk, walkway, and bridge foundation reinforcements: When these structures are in places with poor soil, strong foundations are a necessity. CHANCE helical anchors and piles are our most used solutions.
- Concrete slab repairs and replacements: Our methods for repairing concrete slabs include pressure grouting, polyurethane foam injection, and epoxy stitch welds to repair cracks in concrete slabs. The latter is usually in conjunction with polyurethane foam injections, which lift a settled section, followed by epoxy stitch weld to repair the crack.
- Deep foundation system installations: Through 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.
- Telecommunication, tower, pipeline, and solar foundation installations: We specialize in installing helical anchors and piles in these deep foundation applications.
- Seawall and marine construction, shoring, and repairs: If you need lateral stability for new or existing bulkheads and seawalls, Carolina 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 installations: 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 reinforcements: Our high-end carbon reinforcement materials can strengthen bowing walls, shifting corners, and cracking concrete columns. We also implement CHANCE helical tieback anchors as a reliable and effective solution for anchoring walls.
