Repair Beyond the Foundation: Lateral Applications

Shifts in the ground can cause lateral or horizontal movements in the soils below your building, which can impact the structural integrity of your walls. The lateral movement of the soils puts pressure on the ground surrounding your building as well as the walls of your structure, which could lead to serious damage to your building if not fixed right away.

The soils and the ground surrounding your structure play a large role in the overall support of your building. The cause of shifting soils is typically due to extreme weather conditions or moisture in the ground, which causes the soils to expand and contract. This constant expansion and contraction weakens the soils and compromises the support of your building. Our experienced Charleston and Lexington foundation repair and soil stabilization service staff has worked on several unique situations and provides quick implementation.

Symptoms to look out for include:

  • Bowing or leaning walls
  • Walls rotating side to side
  • Hill slides outside the structure

What’s the Process?

Lateral Applications fix any foundation or wall damage caused by horizontal movement from the soils in the ground. A helical or rock anchor tie-back is typically used to adjust the structure back into place and prevent future movement. If the slopes outside your building need to be stabilized, soil anchors would be used to stabilize them and prevent any further sliding.

Depending on your building’s condition, the Charleston and Lexington, West Virginia foundation repair and soil stabilization crew at United Structural Systems Ltd., Inc. is able to come and analyze the situation and recommend the best possible solution to permanently fix the issue.

  • I don’t have a single complaint to make about this company or my experience with them. From the time I called to the time the job was completed probably totaled 2 weeks. Every aspect of the experience was professional and much more than I could&rsquo

  • We decided to hire them after we'd had another company out for the same quote. The first company gave us a lot of hot air and was very demeaning. Then Bobby and the USS guys came out! I can't say enough about how incredibly professional they were, how well

  • Bobby was fantastic. Needed a structural specialist to review cracks above garage when trying to sell our house. Bobby was very honest, professional and didn't try to sell us on repairs that weren't needed.
    - Leslie S.
  • Bobby arrived as scheduled and conducted a thorough inspection of my basement. He did not try to oversell his products or services. In fact, he alerted me to more cost-effective and simpler solutions that did not require USS services at all.
