Hemet is a city in Riverside County with over 89,000 residents. It is known for the Ramona Pageant, the longest-running outdoor play in North America. The soil is great for farming, which is why there is a significant farming community but it is not the best for a foundation.
Residents of Hemet are familiar with how the soil can shift or put pressure on the foundation walls. This results in sinking and the possibility of the foundation wall buckling and cracking.
If you experience any problems with your foundation, you can call on Dalinghaus Construction for the solution. Large or small, we can handle the issue so it is fixed for good.
Common signs of foundation problems in Hemet, CA
If you can recognize the signs of foundation problems, you are in a good position to have the issue fixed. These signs may be different from one home to another, but they are likely to include one or more of the following.
Do you ever feel as if you are stumbling and falling when you walk across the room? It may be due to sloping floors. Even if you aren’t seeing the issue with your eyes, you may feel it with your sense of balance.
Many people tend to repair cracks when they appear but if the crack is associated with foundation problems, it is going to reappear as the crack expands and grows.
There is a lot of pressure placedon the frame of the home when the foundation shifts. This can result in gaps appearing where surfaces come together.
Smaller frames in the home are also under pressure when the foundation sinks and shifts. As it affects the window and door frames, they may begin sticking when you open or close them.
The foundation under the chimney is one of the first to experience problems. It is not typically as well supported as the rest of the foundation and the chimney can be very heavy.
Problems with retaining walls are as likely to occur as problems with the foundation. If the soil is waterlogged, it could place a considerable amount of pressure on the wall, leading to problems.
Cracks may begin to appear near the doors and windows, where significant pressure is being put on the frames. The foundation may also have cracks, such as stair step cracks.

The foundation repair process begins with an inspection. We offer those foundation inspections for free. Once we know the scope of the project, we can get started. It often includes underpinning to stabilize and/or raise the foundation along with repairs, such as foundation crack repair.

Foundation Repair Services in Hemet, CA

The following are some of the most common foundation repair services we offer in Hemet, CA.
When most people think about foundation repair, they think of underpinning. It is the process of pushing pins into the ground until they reach stable soil or bedrock. The pins can then be attached to the foundation.
Cracks are more than an unsightly problem, they can allow water to seep in and they weaken the walls. We can repair foundation cracks with carbon fiber staples and deep epoxy injections.
We often level the foundation with underpinning but we can also use polyurethane foam injections or we can replace the pads and piers if needed.
Many people in Hemet are familiar with crawlspaces. They are a common type of foundation, and they may need to be repaired from time to time. This can include seismic retrofitting, stem wall repair, and installing crawlspace jacks.
It doesn’t happen often, but there are times when it is better to replace a foundation rather than repair it. This may involve jacking the house up and installing the new foundation underneath it.
The depth of the foundation must be enough that it can support the structure. This can be anything from a basement to push piers that are driven deep into the ground.
