Structural Repairs

A SOLID Foundation

Structural Repair Solutions

When it comes to repairing structural deficiencies, understanding the type of foundation and soils you are dealing with will ensure the work is done correctly. 31 years of experience has helped EC foundations assess and understand the different soil varieties in the Ottawa region.

All of our structural repairs are overseen by an independent Structural Engineering firm. Once the job is complete, all clients receive copies of the engineering reports and permits for their records. This ensures that there is full transparency between the client and company and that the work was completed in accordance with engineering specifications.

Upon investigation, EC Foundations may recommend an exploratory hole. This allows us to properly assess the problem, as not all deficiencies can be seen from the surface.

Exploratory Hole

During an exploratory hole, we excavate an area near the deficiency to expose the foundation wall down to the base of the footing. The Structural and Geotechnical Engineers will then conduct a professional evaluation. Once their report is completed, EC Foundations will meet with you to discuss the findings and best method of repair. These reports give us the information we need to properly determine not only the scope of work, but more importantly an accurate cost estimate. This helps to eliminate additional costs and unexpected surprises throughout the project.
