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, came to inspect our home on 7/24, and arrived on time to inspect our home inside, outside, and our crawl space. We cannot have asked to receive a better inspector than Jason. He did not rush through the inspection but took his time to provide us with very thorough details with images to show what we were dealing with under the crawl space. Jason also helped us with financing, and went through pricing options as well as gave his honest professional opinion of what needs to be repaired/replaced.We had reached out to a different company prior to contacting FSM and when the individual arrived to our home he was only here at most 10 minutes and within this short few minutes without ever even going into our crawl space to see what the problem was he stated our structure and foundation both were bad, said he would need to dig up pavements along the house to knock the crawl space wall out then he would go in from there to repair anything he found. He said he also would need to replace the pavement going along our home after he was finished. He quoted us 20,000 to start this job and it took me numerous calls to get the estimate which arrived 3 weeks later. We did not hesitate to call FSM for a second opinion as we were not comfortable with the first guy from the independently owned company who quoted us 20,000. We are so thankful that FSM gave us Jason Schilt as our inspector because he genuinely cares about his job and the well being of his customers. We hope others are as blessed as we were to have Jason come to their home, he’s a very honest person and great guy to do business with! Thank you so much for everything Jason! We appreciate you and your honesty, you’re the best!Rob and Tammy C.

I called FSM to repair a driveway and porch that were unlevel. Jeff Holbrook, the salesman came out and was great to work with. To sum it up, Jeff was honest, did not over sell and explained to me what I needed to do to reach a withstanding repair and cost.Nate Pierce and Noah Wick came out to do the repair work.I have to say I do not write reviews too often, but I felt I needed to this time. Nate and Noah were great guys. Called before showing up on time and explained everything about how and what they were going to do and did it. After they left my driveway was level and sealed which just looks great. I wish all repairs were done this professionally. If you've had anybody come to your house to fix something, you know what I'm talking about.Thank you, Nate, Noah and Jeff.

Excellent job! Great team! Kyle explained in detail what needed to be done without trying to sell me more than what I needed. The crew that came in to do the job were courteous, respectful of my home. They came in, got to work and knew what needed to be done. If I had questions, they answered them. They were in pretty tight quarters (all 3) and they made the best of it. Thank you so much for a job well done!! I would give them a 15!!! If you need foundation, basement waterproofing, etc., FMR is the place to call.

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!
