Foundation Repair In Kearney, NE

Most foundation problems are caused by poor drainage and expansive soil (i.e. soil that significantly increases in volume as it absorbs moisture and then shrinks by that same amount when it dries out). This swelling-shrinking cycle, which is usually seasonal, puts tremendous pressure on a foundation and can lead to structural damage. At Epp Foundation Repair, we repair foundation problems via underpinning and various basement repair solutions.

Our foundation repair solutions include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Foundation leveling via push piers or helical piers
  • Basement wall repair
  • Pier and beam foundation repair including crawl space encapsulation
  • Basement waterproofing
  • and more

If you have a foundation problem, Epp Foundation Repair can handle it!

What Is Foundation Underpinning?

pier and beam foundation repair

There are different types of soil and not all of them are able to properly support something heavy like a foundation. When the soil under a foundation is weak, the foundation will slowly sink into the soil and become unlevel. This is called differential settlement. Signs include uneven floors, and windows and doors that don’t open and close properly.

Foundation underpinning transfers the structure’s weight to soil that can adequately support it. Heavy duty steel piers are drilled deep down into the soil under the foundation until they reach the load-bearing strata. Once the piers are in place hydraulic jacks can then lift the foundation back up.

Basement Egress Windows

An egress window serves as an emergency exit from your basement. If there’s a fire and you can’t get up to the ground floor via the stairs, you can use the basement egress window to safely exit the building. The International Residential Code states that if a basement is also a living space, there needs to be at least one easy-to-open egress window.
