A nice house and lawn

Our foundation repair company helps with a wide range of foundation issues, from foundation cracks to leaky basements, bowed walls, and more. Foundation issues should always be taken seriously, and when you notice an issue, contact the professionals A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair in Nashville. We offer a variety of foundation repair services, and in today’s blog post, we’re diving into three of them: floor supports, downspout extensions, and bowed walls.

Floor Supports

Unstable floors can be a sign of foundation issues, and they can also lead to other, more extensive future damage. You want to make sure that everyone that walks across the floors in your home is safe, and here at A-1, safety is our top priority. 

A floor that dips or sags needs additional support from the basement, and we offer floor supports and floor jacks to stabilize your floor. We provide fast, professional service and have more than 30 years of experience providing homeowners with safe, effective solutions.  

Downspout Extensions

In order to protect your foundation from damage, you need to have proper drainage solutions in place. Downspout extensions help keep water a safe distance from your home. The last thing any homeowner wants is a leaky basement, and professional downspout extensions may be exactly what you need to ensure the safety of your foundation. Downspout extensions go beyond simple gutter systems and direct your water far away from your home. You deserve to have peace of mind when a Nashville storm rolls in — let us help by installing downspout extensions!

Bowed Walls

Bowed walls are extremely dangerous and are caused by hydrostatic pressure or poor water drainage near your foundation. If you notice horizontal cracks about halfway down your wall, you have a bowed wall and need foundation repair as quickly as possible. 

There’s a difference between a bowed and leaning wall, and they are caused by two different foundation problems. A leaning wall has a crack running horizontally near the top third of a wall and is usually caused by an expansion of soil pressing against the wall. Whatever your problem, we will find the solution!

Our team of foundation repair experts not only treats the problem, we actually straighten and strengthen the wall at the same time to protect you from future issues. If the damage was caused by a drainage issue, we can also provide you with a proper water solution.
