Foundation Repair

Permanently Stabilize Wall

Your walls are the first place to look for signs of foundation problems. Vertical cracks can show up in drywall, and stair-step cracks run down cinder block basement walls. Neither of these are purely cosmetic—they’re structural too. At FSM, stabilizing walls is the first thing we do to restore your home. Using tools personalized to your home, we anchor your walls into alignment and reinforce them to stand strong.

Permanently Stabilize Floor Framing System

When foundation problems strike, you’re going to feel it in your floors. Sagging, bouncing, uneven floors—all little issues telling you to act fast, and with FSM, you can. Any issue with your floors is a problem we want to address permanently. The worry stops with us, and that’s because we give you industry-leading supports fitted to your foundation to put an end to sagging, uneven floors.

Permanently Stabilize Perimeter Foundation

Settlement is what happens when the soil beneath your home erodes, shifts, and dips, pulling your foundation down with it. When this happens, FSM is ready with foundation support piers. Piers are support beams attached to your foundation and drilled into the ground. They reach down to load-bearing soil and raise your sinking foundation back up. With foundation piers from FSM, we’ll get your home back on solid ground.

Basement Waterproofing

Control Wall Moisture

The worst thing to have in your basement is uncontrolled moisture. Moisture is what mold needs to grow, and that means if you have any organic material in your basement (fabric, wood, carpet, books, and prized mementos), it can get ruined—and fast. But moisture doesn’t just get in through open doorways and windows. It can get in through even the smallest cracks in your walls. That’s why our first step in basement waterproofing is sealing your walls with an industry-leading vapor barrier.

Control Ground Water Seepage

It’s impossible to keep water 100% out of your basement. Doing so could actually increase the pressure it puts on your home from the outside. Instead, you want to control it. You want to gather it all up and send it away from your foundation so that it can’t damage your home. That’s why an interior drainage and sump pump system is so important: they remove water and relieve the pressure put on your foundation, protecting your home from water damage.

Control the Environment

The final piece to the puzzle of basement waterproofing is an energy-efficient dehumidifier. Mold spores in the air can cause you and your family to have allergic reactions like coughing and shortness of breath. Not to mention, mold also eats away at your home! A dehumidifier cleans the air of mold spores and robs it of its food source—moisture. At FSM, our dehumidifiers aren’t just a guaranteed breath of fresh air, they’re easy on energy bills, too.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Control Ground Water Seepage

The ground around and under your house is full of water. Rain and snow saturate the soil, seep into your crawl space, and evaporates, filling the crawl space with moisture and humidity. It’s the perfect environment for mold and wood rot to eat away at the structure of your home. The first thing we do to stop this from happening is to add drainage in your crawl space to cycle out the water trying to get in.

Change the Environment

The next step we take to protect your crawl space from moisture is to seal it with an industrial grade vapor barrier. This will change the environment in your crawl space and keep it controlled. It will keep all the moisture trying to destroy your home from getting in through open crawl space vents, gaps in the foundation wall, and any other opening. All of these need to be encapsulated. With encapsulation from FSM, a healthier, more stable home is finally possible.

Properly Insulate the Home

Imagine you left your front door open all winter long. That’s what it’s like without a properly insulated crawl space. With your crawl space and subfloor exposed to the elements, your floor will get cold, and then you’ll see your energy bills climb as your heating overworks itself. That’s why FSM installs customizable insulation blocks that resists moisture and mold, keep your home warm, and your energy bills low.

Concrete Lifting

Stabilize Concrete

Chances are there’s a lot of concrete around your home. Over time, your concrete will sink and crack under the changing weather and eroding soil. You might not think it’s a big deal, but damaged concrete creates tripping hazards to children and the elderly, damages your car, and eats away at your property value. You need a fast, reliable, and eco-friendly solution. Luckily, we have one. Polyurethane concrete injections from FSM can restore your concrete in minutes.

JASON SCHILT was absolutely very knowledgeable and easy to talk with about our foundation issues. Jason was very thorough and explained in lamens terms the problem, how to replace for a decent expected rate or how to repair for much less. Absolutely professional yet down to earth guy. I just would like for him to do the work to but he is just the inspector lol. Thank u Jason Schilt!

The Rochester branch contacted me after the Livonia branch wasted my time for a month. Their crew came out to complete my job within 24 hours of original contact after learning about the issues from the other branch.Nate and Noah were courteous and professional, and were both very apologetic about the way the other branch had treated me. They completed the job in a timely fashion and throughly cleaned up afterward. It was clear they take pride in their work and in the FSM brand.My concrete slab was sinking in a few places in my house, causing significant separation between my base boards and floor. FSM was able to stabilize my floors and move them back up to their original locations. I am very happy with the results

FSM was outstanding to work with! Ben was super informative, honest with us and we felt confident we made the right decision to schedule with FSM to have our Crawl Space encapsulated. The crew showed up to do the dirty work with so much enthusiasm! A great bunch and they did a fantastic job. You would not even have known they were here aside from the major transformation of the Crawl Space. Not a stitch of mess left behind. We had tons of questions during the estimate with Ben and during the installation and they all were very knowledgeable and happy to help. The change through out our home AMAZING! I wished we would have done it sooner!! THANK YOU FSM!
