REPAIR / REPLACEMENT
Roll Away Movers specialize in new construction foundation supports and foundation repairs of all types. Don’t let a small foundation problem turn into a structural nightmare — check into foundation repair before it’s too late! You might have an issue like sagging floors, stair-step foundation cracks, or buckling walls, all of which can devastate your home’s value as well as be an eyesore. Whether it's made of cement, block, wood, or stone; Rollaway does it all expertly.
Regardless of why you’re experiencing a foundation problem in your home, Roll Away Movers will let you know exactly what steps in foundation repair need to be taken to stabilize your foundation after we conduct a thorough inspection of your home. We’ll also provide an honest assessment of issues that do not necessarily need to be repaired – restoring your peace of mind. We are here to restore value to your greatest investment. We can change the worst "Michigan" basement or crawlspace into a beautiful, easy to finish living space with daylight or walkout windows. We take care of the lifting, excavating, and will even haul your old foundation away.
A typical home foundation repair takes less than a week to complete. Our foundation repair systems are designed to bring your foundation walls back to their original positions, to stabilize them, and thus permanently repair the problem - we don’t simply provide a BandAid fix. Your repair comes with a written warranty — so that you know the problem was fixed right, the first time.

MOVING A STRUCTURE
Before your structure goes anywhere, there are a number of steps that need to be taken.
Multiple factors come into account: overhead utility line removal, tree trimming/removal, traffic control, and excavation (if your project goes off-road).
Moving your structure is just one step in the process - we guide you through every detail to ensure a smooth move.
STEPS WE FOLLOW
FOR THE MOVE ROUTE
Can be very time consuming and expensive to move. Overhead lines can be as low as 13′ 6″ to 18’ above the road. A single story house height is usually up to the lowest of the wires by the time it is on the steel and wheels it is placed on.
We will plan a route, figure out the loaded height of your structure and call the utility companies that own the wires along the route. We usually are contacting telephone, cable and electric companies.
They then drive the projected route, give us a price or an hourly fee for each of the crews they have to send out. This cost can be extremely high and might be a factor in deciding to scrap the project. It is important to know the full extent of your costs before moving ahead with your project. We are here to help you walk through this process.
Any trees or limbs that are within the projected move route must be cut back or cut down before the moving date.
We hire a professional tree trimmer to clear the route ahead of time and also to be with us on the day of the move in case of any additional limbs or trees that might need to come down.
Depending on how far and complex the move is, traffic control can be as simple as stopping traffic as we cross an intersection or as much as detailed as planning a full detour as we come through.
Often the Local or State Police will escort the structure, depending on local ordinances. We need to contact the traffic planner or local police to learn the specific requirements for your move.
If there will be a detour, we usually need to submit a traffic plan.
Is the term we use that includes leaving the old property, moving the structure - on-road and/or off-road, and moving onto the new property.
Over the years, we have moved structures across fields, pastures, and meadows. Sometimes the ground is too soft, or there is a ditch or stream to cross - we have metal plates and steel beams to put in place for these types of moves. At times, some excavation of the property we are crossing needs to take place.
These are some of the factors we will go over with you when our estimator joins you for a site visit. We also might need to dig a ramp from ground level down to the footers of the new foundation, if it is needed for your project.
