Our foundation replacement process is simple. We generally follow these steps:

1. The home is jacked up and supported with temporary supports.

2. Heavy equipment is brought in to excavate soil around and under the existing foundation. We also remove steps, gardens, patios, porches, and walkways allowing us access to the foundation when necessary

3. The walls are removed and new ones are constructed.

4. Footer is inspected to confirm structural stability or replaced if necessary.

5. The structure is lowered into place after the new foundation walls are built.

6. Footer drains are replaced and new wall waterproofed.

7. Back-fill and grading conclude the process

8. Contact J.D. Johnson Waterproofing Inc. today for expert foundation wall replacement, rebuilding, restoration and repair.
