How much will foundation repairs cost?
Because each home’s needs are different, an experienced project manager will visit your home to determine the scope of work needed. The project manager will then be able to tell you how much work, if work is needed, will be required on your home. They will provide you with a repair plan, with associated costs, based on their observations.

Who will do the repair work on my home?
Where are you located?
United Structural Systems, Inc. is centrally located in Pleasant View, Tennessee. Pleasant View is approximately 20 miles north of Nashville and 20 miles south of Clarksville.
Why is my foundation settling?
Extreme moisture and drought conditions are the main causes of foundation failure. Soil swells during wet months and shrinks during dry months. This swelling and shrinking can create voids, or pockets of air in the soil. This allows settlement to occur. Other possible causes could be poor drainage, plumbing leaks, and non-compacted soils.
Why does USS recommend steel foundation underpinning?
We understand the geology of our region and we know the steel pile system for underpinning is extremely successful for stabilization. Learn more about our foundation repair process.
Will cracks completely close?
We strive for maximum closure, and the project foremen will stabilize the foundation to prevent further settlement. Cosmetic repair (remortaring/caulking) may be necessary and we will let you know if that is required.
Will this repair be permanent?
Will I have to relocate during repairs?
For foundation repair, you will not need to relocate or move anything inside your home. For basement waterproofing, some items may need to be moved out of the area of repair. Your project manager will inform you of any potential issues. Keep in mind there might be noise as repairs may require the use of light and/or heavy machinery.
