Depending on the individual site, the conditions for your foundation can vary quite a bit in the Palo Alto area. Each site needs to be treated differently to make sure that the foundations are anchored correctly, and with time each site can change characteristics which leads to the ground shifting and moving, causing the foundation to move and applying different forces to the foundation and structure built on it. Different products can be used to repair these issues, restoring the foundation to its original position and securing it in place to prevent any future shifting and stresses being applied.

Identifying an issue with your foundation is the first important step, there are a lot of symptoms that can give you important information about your foundation, such as cracks that start to form in the foundation and throughout your house, or nail heads starting to become visible through the drywall. When this happens, it's best to have a professional come and check to see if this is a cause for concern. It doesn't take a lot of movement in your foundation to start causing serious problems in your home so time is of the essence when dealing with foundation issues.
The first thing our team will do is to come to the site to inspect the foundation thoroughly to see if they can diagnose the problem, this will give them the best idea of how to manage the problem to get it repaired.
