Stone Foundation Repair
King Piers LLC uses a “Stone Foundation Repair and Renovation” system to repair damaged stone foundations from the interior of the home. Stone foundations were common building material and practice in homes built before the early 1900s. The mortar placed between the stones provides the bond for a strong wall of natural materials that can withstand most elements. Over time, though, moisture, freezing temperatures, and shifting dirt cause the stones to move and crack, allowing water and air to penetrate the foundation. From our initial diagnosis to the completion of the job, King Piers has the solution. We’ve developed a tried and true restoration process that guarantees to bring your structure back to soundness and provide you with the assurance that your home is structurally stable for many more years to come! Our process entails the following:
- We thoroughly clean the stone walls of all loose debris and mortar.
- We apply fresh new mortar from top to bottom and corner to corner filling in any gaps or cracks along the way in the walls.
- Once the new mortar has fully dried, we will paint the walls with one coat of white DryLok paint.
