Whether a house is built over a FULL BASEMENT, over a CRAWL SPACE, or on a CONCRETE SLAB, it requires a foundation system capable of supporting its weight and distributing that weight evenly to the soil below. In addition, a foundation must be able to withstand the lateral (sideways) forces of soil pushing against it without allowing cracks and leaks to form. The foundation also provides a firm anchor for the building above.
At Gilson Home and Building Inspections LLC, we believe in working with the top local contractors who are building the foundations, also the top companies repairing damaged, or foundations that have failed.
