Are you noticing that your crawlspaces are sagging, your floors are cracking, or your windows are sticking?
You may have a foundation problem. If you identify the problem early on, your foundation may only require a small repair. Capital Foundation & Waterproofing Ltd is a foundation contractor in Ottawa that has the expertise and training to permanently repair your foundation. We provide structural repairs, including:
Sewer work (hooking up your sewer system)
Foundation settlement happens when the soil around your foundation shrinks, or when the soil was not well-compacted before your structure was built. When soil is dry, it pulls away from the foundation, leaving a lack of support for the foundation walls. If the soil was poorly compacted, the weight of the structure will compact it further, causing the whole foundation to sink downward. Either of these cases can cause settlement, which can be detrimental to any masonry or brick in your home or business. Not only can we assess the root of the problem, identify why your masonry is damaged, and repair the foundation problem, we can also repair any masonry that has been damaged.
