In this job overview, we will focus on a project done by Fernando’s crew in Bonner Springs, KS on March 23, 2018. This was a foundation repair and waterproofing job. This customer had had previous work done with concrete anchors, but he was still having problems. We stepped in at this point, performed a free estimate, and determined that the customer needed a foundation fix along with waterproofing.

We installed fifty-seven feet of exterior waterproofing, and this was because we wanted to make sure that any water was going to have proper drainage and go away from the home and not stay inside. After this, we put in three carbon fiber straps and four plate anchors. This usually means that there is a leaning or bowing wall that needs straightened out. In this case, the foundation was moving. We installed the anchors on the north wall, as well as the carbon fiber straps. The excavation was on the north wall as well.

Why had the foundation previously failed? It really depends on what was done with the foundation work previously, if the previous contractor had taken into account the source of the damage instead of just fixing the damage, and what materials were used. The source of the damage is usually the most important part because, like a weed, if you don’t get to the source you will never fix the problem. If water damage was causing foundation damage (leaning or bowing walls and moving foundation), the solution is to resolve the waterproofing issue and fix the damage that has been done to the foundation. This is a two step process that is important in all good foundation repair and waterproofing work done on your home or business. Make sure the contractor is looking at the source of the issue and not just “fixing” it for now.
