In some cases, your dirt may need to be excavated on the exterior side of the foundation to examine the condition of your foundation from the outside. We look for all the essentials needed to completely asses what remedies would work; such as when the home was built, what material was used, and what are the biggest problems. We can then offer a variety of solutions such as water sealant, back plaster, drain tile, ect… For a Brick foundation those are typically only a few feet below grade sitting on what is called a shelf wall.
