This video shows the power clay soil has on your basement foundation walls. This home in St.Catherines was surrounded with clay soil that over the years of freeze thaw cycles pushed the foundation in to the point of being unstructually sound and needing repair. A previous home owner hid the problem by finishing the basement. The majority of the foundation walls were able to be pushed back and reinforced with carbon fiber strapping. Unfortunately some of the foundation was beyond repair and needed replacement. We excavated the exterior foundation and removed the clay soil. The walls were pushed back in place, repairs were made to the walls and waterproofing was installed to the exterior. Gravel was used to fill in the exterior to relieve pressure and allow better drainage around the home.
