Colorado homeowners are occasionally faced with foundation failure resulting from the clay soils prevalent throughout the state. Because clay is an expansive soil, it shrinks or swells with respect to area precipitation levels.

If any of the symptoms mentioned above have materialized in your home, reach out to our team of professional experts at Rapid Foundation Repair as soon as possible. Our skilled repairs will ensure the continued safety and stability of your Colorado home.
Your home's repair process will differ depending on the type,
size, and location of the foundation cracks. Minor, age-related
cracks may benefit from our crack injection services, in which
we insert high-density epoxy or polyurethane foam into the
affected wall. Once in place, the foam expands to 20 times its
liquid volume, filling and permanently sealing any cracks.
For more extensive repairs, we rely on highly durable helical wall tiebacks and anchors to relieve the foundation of any pressure that is causing it to crack. Helical wall tieback installation is fast and affordable, maintaining the stability and functionality of your home for many years to come.
