Foundation Repair in Park Ridge, Illinois

If you live in Park Ridge, IL, your home is built on soil that is expansive which means that when it gets wet, it will heave and swell and when it is dry, it will shrink. This movement of the soil beneath your foundation causes your foundation to move as well. Your foundation may be showing signs of failure due to this constant shifting and movement.

It is a good idea to periodically look around your home and see if there are any signs of foundation failure.

Some of these signs include:

At the first sign of foundation failure, contact the experts at United Structural Systems of Illinois. We have the underpinning products to get your foundation back to its original level and keep your home structurally sound. Our underpinning products include helical piers and steel push piers. These piers are driven through the unstable soil until they reach load bearing stratum. Each pier is load tested and then the entire structure is hydraulically lifted onto these piers and your foundation is lifted back to its original level and stabilized.
