Repairing Foundation Failure in Older Brick Home in Durham, NC

At Brackett Foundation Repair, we know how you feel, and we want to let you know how common it is, and that most foundation failures we see in North Carolina can be repaired.

Here are photos of an older brick home in Durham. Take a look at what we found, and what we did to fix it.

The helical pile gets fully inserted under the earth, and everything is restored, better than before
