WALL BRACING

PANKEY FOUNDATION REPAIR

Too much water can cause soils to be expansive and foundations can push in. Walls will push in laterally due to expansive clay soil swelling, creating hydrostatic pressure against the foundation wall. The best time to fix a foundation problem is as soon as you find it. If left for a time, a foundation problem could get worse.
Steel braces or Vertical Wall Restraints are generally installed to a foundation wall that has moved ¾ of an inch or more. Walls will push in laterally due to expansive clay soil swelling, creating hydrostatic pressure against the foundation wall. Steel beams are installed vertically against the wall and anchored to the floor joists above and to the concrete floor below.

WALL STRAIGHTENING

PANKEY FOUNDATION REPAIR

Generally walls that have moved more than 3 ½ inches should be straightened back to their original level position. To achieve this:
1.
2.
3.
The foundation wall is excavated and the house is temporarily raised slightly off of the foundation.
The braces are installed and the wall is hydraulically leveled back to its original position.
The house is then rested on the wall and cracks on the exterior are sealed and dirt is backfilled.

SIGNS OF

SETTLEMENT

Soil in the Kansas City Area can contain expensive clay. In the rainy seasons the moisture content of the clay soil increases and therefore the soil expands. In the summer months the clay will dry up and the soil will retract (similar to a sponge drying up.) As the moisture content of the soil decreases foundation footings and walls will start to shift and settle.
