Lateral Applications: Repair Beyond the Foundation

Horizontal or lateral movement in the soils beneath your house is often caused by shifts in the ground. This movement can impact your wall’s structural integrity due to the lateral pressure placed on the ground around the structure. Serious damage can occur if this situation is not fixed as soon as possible.

The overall support of your structure is impacted by the surrounding soils and ground. Extreme weather or ground moisture is a primary cause of soil expansion and contraction, causing shifting. This contraction and expansion weakens the soil over time, affecting the stability and support of your structure. When you need expert advice on this occurrence, our Lexington foundation repair and soil stabilization experts can provide a timely, custom solution to your unique situation. If you’re experiencing any of the following, the team at USS can help:

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

What’s The Process

Damage to your foundation or walls caused by horizontal or lateral movement of the soil can be fixed by a lateral application process. A rock or helical anchor tie-back can be used to prevent future movement and also adjust the structure back in place. For slope stabilization, soil anchors can be used to stabilize and prevent sliding in the future.
