Foundation Repair

Detecting Structural Damage in Cincinnati Homes

When concrete is curing, it tends to shrink a little. As a result, tiny hairline cracks tend to appear on basement walls. These are usually harmless and don’t indicate that your home needs structural crack repair service.

There are, however, some types of foundation wall cracks that indicate more serious structural issues. These types of cracks usually happen because the wet soil around your foundation pushes against your basement walls, or because erosion has weakened the soil underneath your foundation.

These types of structural cracks, once detected, need to be inspected and fixed as soon as possible. The longer you wait the bigger the problem will become, and the more expensive and difficult it will be to solve. Don’t let your home fail do to structural cracks and foundation settlement.

Foundation Settlement Repair – Foundation Underpinning

Foundations sink due to soil movement or erosion. The ground under your house is no longer able to support the weight of the structure. Foundation piers or foundation underpinning is an effective and affordable way to stabilize sinking foundations. Steel piles are driven into the ground, past the problem soil, until they reach a strata that is able to sustain the structure. Steel braces are then attached to the piles and to the foundation footing to secure the entire building, keeping it from sinking any further and, in some cases, even restoring the foundation to its original position.

Know when a foundation crack is posing a structural threat to your home

Healthy Basement Concepts recommends you have any foundation wall crack inspected and monitored by a professional as soon as possible. Below are some easily detectable signs to help determine if a foundation crack is posing structural problems
Which Direction?

To know if you need assistance, take notice of the direction of the crack. If you have a horizontal structural crack in a poured concrete wall or stairstep cracks on block walls, accompanied or not by bowing or leaning walls, get it professionally inspected as soon as possible. If you see vertical cracks that are wider than hairline cracks or are V-shaped, call a professional foundation repair company right away. They indicate a far more serious problem and you may require structural crack repairs.

What’s The Size?

If it’s a hairline crack, it is probably just the result of the curing of the concrete. Wider cracks or cracks that are allowing water to seep into the basement, should be inspected and monitored by a professional, even if they don’t pose any structural concerns. Healthy Basement Concepts offers effective and affordable solutions to repair both structural and simple leaky cracks.

Jason called the same day that I requested info. They were able to come over a few days later for an inspection and estimate. Jason explained what was causing the issues with our basement and then showed us the best options to fix the problem. There was no pressure to hire them and he didn't try to upsell us anything we didn't need. Jason and his team were able to come the following week and fix our basement. It took them a little less than 2 days to complete the job. Jason kept us updated during the whole process. We couldn't be happier with the results and would highly recommend Jason and Healthy Basement Concepts.

Stop. Read this review. After having six companies come bid a project with me, and being told by each company that I needed to do something else to fix the issue, there were only two companies that came out to quote me that didn't hesitate to roll up their sleeves and start trying to identify the root cause. Some of the quotes were upwards of $50k (I'm looking at you, EverDry), and others just quoted me for what I said I "thought" I needed. The moral of the story is, what I thought I needed, Jason found out was only part of the case and showed me why through a series of pictures he took. (Oh, and if you're curious, he was less than 1/3 of the huge quote. I told him it was still too expensive, and he told me exactly what I needed done immediately, and what could wait.) I mean, cmon, HBC sent me a thank you card THE NEXT DAY after completing the work. They thanked ME for the opportunity to solve my problem. There are companies that might quote less, but for my money, Jason Fry is a man of his word, and I trust his word completely.

Had water coming in basement in one area and they came out and looked at the area where the water was coming in and showed me where it was and told me it was something they did not fix but told me where to buy the water stopper and I could do it myself. I was impressed by his honestly and professional advice. If anyone is looking for water leak companies I would highly recommend giving them a call.

I don't typically write reviews, but these guys really deserve it. Responsive, prompt, knowledgeable, detailed... they did a great job for a fair price and we couldn't be more pleased. The addition of a supplemental beam has improved the feel of the floor and has insured no issues with the new kitchen island.

We woke up Labor Day Monday to wet carpet in our basement after a very rainy weekend. Even on the holiday, Jason answered the phone and helped us figure out next steps. He came and looked at the situation the following Friday and gave us quotes and a test to perform to figure out exactly where the water was coming from. We ended up having a crack in the basement wall. In that time we also had a death in the family so we had to put everything on the back burner. Jason was very understanding and helped us pick right back up when we were ready to move forward over a month later. His crew came to our house in Fairfield and were incredibly professional. They kept the area they were working in very clean and put down tarps to keep the rest of our house clean too. I would highly recommend Healthy Basement Concepts!

I decided to encapsulate two crawlspaces at my home because the rooms above them were very cold in the winter. Additional annoyances were that both crawlspaces were dark, dirty areas that weren't usable for storage, and I worried about them harboring pests. It was more expensive they I'd imagined, but you really get what you pay for! Both spaces are now clean and bright, which has reduced clutter in my basement because we can store all of our seasonal items in the crawlspaces. The temperature issue was addressed effectively as well; both rooms above the crawlspaces are now pleasant in the winter. What I wasn't prepared for was how much of a difference it made in the summer. My sunroom went from being pretty hot every afternoon to feeling just a few degrees warmer than the main house. I didn't realize how much impact that sealing the exterior vents in the crawlspace below it would have during the summer months. Jason's team was hardworking, professional, and a joy to work with. I'd highly recommend them for this type of project.

Jason made clear about what needed to be done to clean and repair my crawl space properly. Did the job in a timely manner and the area was cleaner and healthier when the job was finished. Great workmanship reasonably priced. I am very happy with their work. Highly recommend Healthy Basement Concepts!
