A house and its surroundings are only as sound as the foundation that supports each element. 

This part of the home’s foundation is experiencing settlement (collapse). Eventually the brick veneer begins to separate from door and window frames. Finally framing and roof problems occur, as well as plumbing problems. Foundation problems don’t get better without professional repair and house leveling. It is better to take action sooner rather than later.

Signs of a settling foundation may be hard to detect at first. Cracks may appear in the foundation structure or façade. Doors and windows may stick or develop gaps in the frame. Once-level steps may buckle, separate or tilt. Eventually, floors inside the home begin to sag or drywall develops diagonal fissures.

Although Cantsink solutions protect a home from soil erosion damage wet weather may impose on foundations, Cantsink does not provide waterproofing. Helical piles support the foundation from well below ground where runoff cannot undermine their stability or durability.

As summer approaches and outdoor living beckons, homeowners often discover that winter weather has disrupted surfaces and supports. Cantsink helical piers also provide lasting support for patios, decks, retaining walls and other landscape features to ensure they remain attractive and effective for years on end.

Swimming pools, especially, suffer from unstable soil conditions. The weight of cement for the pool and decking around it can be particularly vulnerable to certain soil conditions. Cracks in cement surfaces cause pools to leak and can affect water quality in the pool.

Lasting protection from damage

Cantsink foundation support repairs pool and decking cracks that appear and prevents further shifting. The easy, discreet, below-ground installation of Cantsink’s helical piles means that repairs cause minimal disruption to the landscape even as they supply lasting protection against further damage. Only the homeowner will know they are there.
