Why Choose American Standard Foundation Repair

Understanding Basement Cracks

Basement cracks often occur due to the local soil’s unique attributes. The prevalent clay soil in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi is known for its expansive characteristics when wet and its contractive nature when dry. These soil movements can lead to basement cracks. Left unchecked, these seemingly small cracks can evolve into significant structural problems threatening your property’s safety and value.

Our Approach To Repairing Basement Cracks

At American Standard Foundation Repair, we have developed an exhaustive, customer-centric approach to tackle basement cracks.

Initial Inspection and Analysis: Our process begins with a comprehensive inspection of your basement, identifying the cause and severity of the cracks present. We don’t just look at the cracks; we investigate to understand the bigger picture – the why and the how.

Treatment Planning: Based on our inspection findings, we develop a repair plan tailored to your property’s unique needs, considering factors like soil type, building structure, and the extent of the damage. This custom approach allows us to address the root cause of the problem, rather than just treating the symptoms.

Execution and Follow-up: Our team meticulously implements the repair plan, using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. Once the repair is complete, we conduct follow-up checks to ensure the cracks are properly addressed and to verify the effectiveness of our interventions. Our job isn’t finished until we’re satisfied that we’ve provided a lasting solution.
