If your home has any of these brick or masonry problems, contact a professional to inspect your home and foundation. The experts at Basement Masters Waterproofing have the experience and knowledge to find the root of the problem.
If your home has brick and masonry problems from foundation settlement, our team will use underpinning products such as steel piers to lift and level your foundation, stabilizing the entire structure. This will take care of any future cracking/shifting.
Underpinning piers are driven deep into the ground through unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Then, each pier is individually load tested. After load testing, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers to lift and stabilize the foundation.
Basement Masters Waterproofing also offers epoxy injections to repair brick and masonry cracks. Epoxy injections weld the cracks back together. This restores the strength of the brick and masonry. It also creates a seal to keep moisture out.
