This homeowner had experienced wall shifting and cracking in their basement walls, as seen in the photos below. They hired a structural engineer to assess the property and make recommendations on the appropriate repair. Once the engineer had determined the appropriate corrections for this home’s unique situation the home owner hired Hughes Construction Company. In accordance with the designs provided by the designing engineer of Buyers Protection Group, Hughes Construction installed the following repairs:
- Injected 245 lineal feet of foundation cracks
- Installed 46 steel angles
- Installed 4 steel pilasters
The combination of these applications will stabilize the home’s foundation and protect against further movement of the walls.
