Foundation Repair

Repairing the foundation requires years of building knowledge...

Edmonton foundation repair

Most foundation problems seem cosmetic. Fixing the effect looks good, fixing the cause is our business. Call us so we can do it right, from the foundation up.

Repairing a foundation from the exterior is paramount... though it may not always be possible or affordable. Most times a foundation failure is due to the landscape and how it affects the way water is contained and distrubuted in the location of the structure.

Patching a concrete wall with injected urethanes is the most cost effective band-aid. This method does nothing to correct the cause which can be any such as: failed grades, tree roots, hydraulic soils, etc.

We have many successful solutions to repair your foundation.
A few of these are:
- Window well drain (simple)
- Carbon fibre foundation repair (simple to complex)
- Supporting or underpinning walls (complex)
- Interior weeping tile or an interior drainage system (simple to complex)

Horizontal foundation cracks are the beginning of future catastrophic foundation failures.

This is not a repair done only by the injection processes. The floors above need to bear on new load points while the foundation is being fortified or replaced. There are several methods, each has their unique benefit.

For example: Lateral pressure or bearing walls, under pinning, piles that are all in conjunction with grading, re-landscaping, damp proofing, water proofing, weeping tile, sump pit and pumps.

These are all part of a larger system that assures your home or business stays safe and dry for years to come.

When it comes to Foundations, Blockade has a solution for you.

Basement development and Renovations

Whole house updates...

Edmonton renovations

Working with Blockade ensures exceptional:

1. Concept and Design
2. Planning and Management
3. Execution and Clean up

Updating finishes, basement developments or full kitchen renovations all start with preparation and planning.

After assessing the area our client has planned to update, we provide a written contract with noted warranties and a full cost discloser. This will include if any, project management fees, discounted contractor material pricing and permit fees. You are not in the dark about what you are being quoted or what you are actually paying. Nothing is hidden, transparency is a policy.

Typically on some smaller jobs such as basement developments, a fixed price is applied and the client pays what is quoted, there may be cost allowances on items such as flooring or fixtures. The work is listed in the lump sum cost to simplify the process and expedite the work. Changes made are agreed too and updated costs are paid over and above the fixed cost.

Our attempt is to provide the client with piece of mind knowing all the processes and trades persons are as professional as possible.

Call Blockade today for all your basement needs.
