Is Your Garage Slipping Away from Your Home?

This can be common with Michigan homes. Often, garages do not have the same type of foundation as the rest of the home. Due to having a more shallow footing and not being below the frost line, a garage can experience frost heave and begin to settle faster and even sink, thus pulling away from a home. When a garage begins to pull away, it can also pull the roofing structure of the home along with it, resulting in even more repairs being necessary and increased costs for homeowners.


Take a look at how we helped homeowners in Grand Rapids restore their property.

Why We Were Called To Help:

  • The garage was visibly slipping away from the home and had a large sinkhole in one area
