  • Foundation Replacement


  • Poorly compacted soil base, causing the foundation to sink or shear
  • Large and excessive range of cracks that build over time
  • Unusual, substandard, or unsound building materials employed in the original construction (e.g., cheap, low-quality concrete)
  • Not allowing the foundation to “cure” for the right period of time, leaving it in a porous and unstable state
  • Voids or hollow spots that develop within the foundation
  • Extended exposure to water, humidity, or frost
  • An interrupted concrete pour which makes an unintentional “joint” within the concrete and
  •  Using materials such as brick, stone, or un-strengthened masonry.


In other areas of our website we discuss the services that Weinstein Construction can offer homeowners when they need basement waterproofing, leaky basement repair, basement wall sealing, or foundation cracks repair. However, sometimes a home’s foundation simply must be replaced to give it a fresh start and all the support it needs. Homeowners are often surprised to learn that the costs to lift a house and replace its foundation can be very reasonable!

Foundation Replacement Large

Weinstein Construction typically offers a full foundation replacement service when a foundation is on its last legs and when repairing the foundation is no longer an option (for example, when it cannot be done in a timely or cost-effective manner). Most homeowners who seek to replace a home’s foundation have simply determined, with the help of a structural engineer, that the foundation has suffered so much damage that it simply cannot be repaired.

During a foundation replacement, the old foundation is broken down and taken out. Once that step is complete, fresh concrete is poured and a new foundation is constructed. Once the concrete is poured, it will need some time to dry and “cure” before it is ready to be used.

Not every contractor is skilled at removing an old foundation and pouring a new one. Oftentimes a contractor foundation repair specialist doesn’t even have the expertise and tools necessary to replace a foundation. A home’s foundation supports the entire structure and as such, must be constructed carefully, methodically, and using correct, top-quality materials. This is not an easy process such basement wall cracks repair or waterproofing a basement wall, as here, if the job is not done properly, the entire building can suffer major damage. If you’re now asking, “are there foundation specialists near me” then the answer is yes! The professionals at Weinstein Construction are deeply experienced in removing and replacing a foundation, and our promise to you is that once your home’s new foundation is in place, it will have the support it needs to protect you and your family!

    In situations where a home’s foundation has sustained severe damage and can’t be adequately or cost-effectively repaired, replacing the entire foundation is the only way to maintain the strength and sturdiness of your home. Causes of such a catastrophic scenario range from seismic activity to landslides or flooding that may cause a sudden erosion of the soil under the foundation.

    Occasionally, incompetent engineering, shoddy original building practices, or the use of substandard materials provides the “fatal flaw” that damages a home’s foundation.

In other words, in some cases, a foundation simply cannot be replaced.

    Jack Dunbar Weinstein Construction Review 2

    Weinstein Construction redid my foundation and retaining wall and I’m very happy with the work!

    Mr. Allen
    Donald Borg Weinstein Construction Review

    We had our basement retrofitted. Very courteous to us, very attentive. I was very impressed with the people who came to do the job. They were polite, well dressed, and really seemed to know what they were doing. We feel a lot safer now than we would have otherwise.

    Donald Borg

    We had used Weinstein to earthquake retrofit our house. First, my intention was to do it myself, but we got a very nice sales rep over and he went through the whole procedure and by putting a thought into I concluded that it was not worth it for me to spend 14 days under the house. They came out, a top professional crew, they did it in a day, and we really loved what they did.

    Yorkin Schwar

    We are pleased with the results. The people were on time, they were neat, clean, and even the “big boss” was very nice and accommodating, so we’re happy with the services.

    Tom and Judy Fogle

    I was very happy. Very clean job. Very satisfied, and I recommend it to everybody.

    Eddie Levin

    We had our house retrofitted. Immediately we noticed the stability of it, even when we walked the house. Now it’s so much better and it’s stabilized, we’re very confident. It went very well and we’re very pleased.
