At the first signs of foundation failure, contact United Structural Systems of Illinois. The longer you put off foundation repair, the more damage that will occur to your home.

Our solution for your foundation repair is to install helical piers or steel push piers. These piers are driven into the earth past the expansive soils until they reach stable soil. Each pier is load tested after installation, then the entire structure is hydraulically lifted onto the piers, stabilizing your foundation.

Bowing walls are cause by the hydrostatic pressure that is pushing against your basement walls from the wet soil surrounding them. USS uses helical tiebacks for bowing and leaning wall repair. These tiebacks are installed from inside the basement wall through small holes that are drilled, then with outside excavation, the wall is pulled back into place immediately.

Another service that we provide is mudjacking to level concrete in Alington Heights, IL. Mudjacking is the injection of a pressurized clay/cement slurry underneath the affected concrete. Once this is injected through small hole, your concrete is lifted back to its original level.
