Importance of a Foundation Inspection

Anytime you notice cracks — indoor or outdoor, on the floor, walls, or ceiling — or walls that are bowing or leaning, you need a foundation inspection. Your foundation is a key part of your home, and the first step in repairing the cracks or bowing is knowing the extent of the problem. That’s what our foundation inspections offer — a diagnostic checkup for your foundation. Think of it as an in-depth exploration of what lies beneath the surface of your home to find the source of any issues. Our licensed experts use a variety of tools and techniques to thoroughly examine the soil and geological conditions surrounding your foundation. The information we gather helps us create better repair strategies that will solve the problem, guides us through any unseen challenges, and ensures foundation repairs that are not only precise but also designed for lasting stability.

Foundation Systems Hawaii is proud to offer free foundation inspection services to Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

What to Expect with a Foundation Inspection

  • Consultation: Everything begins when you give us a call. While on the phone, we’ll ask questions to understand the scope of your needs, your location, and other information that will help our experts. We’ll also schedule a visit for us to inspect the property in person.
  • Site Visit: Our technicians will assess the soil conditions and identify potential challenges. We also thoroughly examine all indoor and outdoor walls, floors, and ceilings for structural issues caused by problems with your foundation.
  • Soil Testing: Using state-of-the-art tools, we conduct a series of tests on the soil around your property to determine composition, density, moisture content, and bearing capacity.
  • Analysis: Our geotechnical engineers analyze the collected data and assess the soil’s suitability for your project. We provide you with a detailed report of our findings.
  • Recommendations: Along with the report on our findings, we will discuss your options and our recommendations. In the best-case scenario, we find nothing wrong with your foundation and leave you with the added peace of mind. If there is a problem, we’ll discuss your repair options and make our recommendations.
  • Ongoing Support: Our commitment doesn’t end with your free inspection. We never push you to choose our services, but we provide a variety of expert repair options if you decide to schedule repairs with us.

Types of Repairs & Next Steps

Depending on the extent of your foundation’s issues, we may recommend any of our services:

  • Crack Repair: For minor to moderate cracks, we have many methods to repair cracks in your foundation, including epoxy injections, carbon fiber reinforcement, and waterproofing.
  • Foundation Drainage: We design and install foundation drainage systems to divert water away from your foundation, preventing water-related damage. Our solutions are tailored to your property’s specific needs.
  • Underpinning: In more extreme cases, our experts use underpinning to strengthen and stabilize a vulnerable foundation with steel piers or other supports.
  • Void Filling: Erosion, settling, and other natural processes can create gaps or voids under your foundation, causing shifts and cracks. We offer complete void filling services to restore your foundation’s stability.

Benefits of Our Foundation Inspections

  • Risk Mitigation: We help you identify potential soil-related issues early so you can avoid a larger problem in the future that comes with higher costs and frustrating delays.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing whether the crack you called about is a serious problem or a quick fix is an important distinction, and our expert team is happy to give you that peace of mind through the lens of our years of experience.
  • Optimized Foundation Design: Our expertise helps design, build, and repair foundations that are efficient, cost-effective, and durable.
