Shield Foundation Repair
Moves a Heritage House
In the fall of 2022, Shield Foundation Repair was contracted to move a historic home at the University of Alberta that was built over one hundred years ago. Making the project technically complex was the fragility of the structure, location, overhead obstructions, and timing to minimize neighbourhood disruption.
More than just fixing a foundation crack.
Our job is to make your most terrifying moment like it never happened.
The moment you realized something was wrong.
You’ve got water coming into your basement. Alarm bells go off in your head. What do you do now? Who do I call? You take matters into your own hands and begin tearing down walls. You can’t find where it’s coming from. You go to Google to look for answers.

Recognize These Moments?
Shield will conduct investigations and sampling, providing proper documentation and remediation solutions for mold and asbestos removal to ensure a healthy environment for you and your family.
When a house is originally built, the excavation is typically 3 to 4 feet wider than the structure. The back-fill is put in loosely and not compacted. Over time, the ground shrinks and the excavation settles. This will happen to every home and needs to be addressed. We at Shield Foundation Repair can adjust the grade to ensure the water flows away from the house.
There are several reasons foundations drop or settle. Typically, the area underneath the footings has compacted over time due to clay shrinking from lack of moisture. Shield Foundation Repair uses three different types of piles to underpin and support your foundation from further settling:
- Push Pile System: Piles are pushed into the ground until enough load bearing capacity is reached. This capacity is calculated by an engineer and verified at the time of install.
- Screw Pile System: Screw piles are drilled into the ground beside your foundation and a bracket is installed on top of the pile with which your foundation is lifted.
- Concrete Friction Pile System: Holes are drilled 20-30 feet below your foundation and a steel cage is inserted. Concrete is poured to create a pile and hydraulic jacks are used to lift your foundation back up to where it should be.
