More about foundation repair costs.
When a home foundation is damaged, things can look much worse than they actually are. In that light, it may seem like the foundation is beyond repair. Instead, -- the solution is to demolish the old foundation and build a new one in its place.
While we agree that it's wise to take every foundation problem seriously, it's important to bear in mind that most foundation issues have simple, permanent repair solutions.
Replacing your foundation is an expensive, time-consuming process that doesn't really address the original source of your foundation issues -- the soils around your home.
Foundations old and new can experience damage from expansive soils, settlement, frost, and other forces. That's why we at DBS prefer to address these problems on your existing foundation -- with warrantied, permanent solutions.

Pressure from outside your foundation walls —from expansive clay soils and from soil saturated with water—can impose loads that your walls were not designed to withstand.
Once soil pressure exceeds a wall's strength, the wall will begin to bow inwards, tilt at the top, and/or slide inwards at the bottom.
If the problem is ignored long enough, it can even lead to the collapse of the wall. We have simple, effective, warrantied solutions for failing foundation walls that can be installed quickly -- often in a day or less!
Our foundation wall anchors are designed to both stabilize foundation walls and provide additional adjustment capability to return them to their original position. Our repair techniques will stabilize the wall right away. Completely straightening a bowed wall can be done gradually or immediately, depending on the strategy you select.
Bowing, tilting foundation walls should not be left that way! Our wall straightening services can get your walls back to a straight, stable position in no time.
If you live in a region where your streets are made with concrete, the expansion and contraction of the concrete can lead to serious damage to your foundation.
As its expansion joints begin to fail, a concrete driveway can exert tremendous pressure on the garage slab and walls, and on your foundation walls. This can lead to serious cracks in these walls.
Street creep can be effectively repaired with our warrantied street creep repair system, which includes wall anchors and improved expansion joints.
Your house weighs a lot, and the soils underneath may have a limited ability to support that weight. As the soil fails to support the structural weight, part of all of it may begin to sink downwards. As it does, a wide variety of problems can result, including cracked walls and floors, tilting chimneys, jamming doors and windows, and other issues.
Stabilizing a foundation with foundation piers can transfer the weight of your home to competent load-bearing soils or bedrock deep below your home, bypassing inadequate soils that are causing settlement problems.
Floors above crawl spaces often begin to sag for three major reasons: sinking mid-span supports, poorly spaced supports, and rotting structural members. This damage shows up in the living space in the form of uneven or bouncy floors, jamming doors and cracks in the wallboard.
Repairing a damaged crawl space can often be done in less than a day. Heavy duty support posts can restore structural stability to the home, and they may even return the floor to its original straight, level state.
Concrete can sink and settle when the soil underneath is either unable to support the weight of a concrete slab or is washed out from underneath. As concrete slabs sink downwards, they will begin to crack and become damaged, ruining the functionality and aesthetic appeal of driveways, walkways, steps, and other outdoor concrete.
Mud jacking repairs this problem by pumping a "slurry" comprised of water, soil, sand, and Portland cement underneath the concrete. This will lift and stabilize the concrete for a fast, economical repair.
