What Services Do We Offer in Salt Lake City?

Salt Lake City Concrete Lifting 

Do you live in Salt Lake City? Are you looking for a reliable and affordable concrete lifting service? Then look no further than Rhino Foundation Systems. We know that over time concrete slabs will settle or sink due to deficient soil compaction or the weather. And although replacing the concrete might seem like a viable option, in the long term, it can be expensive. This is where concrete lifting comes in. 

Environmentally friendly, efficient and hassle-free, the concrete lifting process is an affordable option that’s favored by thousands of home/business owners across the world. As long as your concrete slabs are crack-free and in good condition, this solution is perfect for you.

How Does it Work?

At Rhino Foundation Systems we use a high-strength, expanding polyurethane foam to lift the sunken concrete slabs. Injecting it into a small hole in the surface of the slab, as it begins to expand, the slab will be pushed back into place. Once it’s in a perfect position, the hole will be patched up.

Basement Waterproofing 

In Salt Lake City, we know that basements are prone to water leaks due to the weather. But that’s not the only culprit. Mold, an insect infestation and an unstable foundation are all causes of a damp basement. So in order to protect your basement from these issues, it’s a good idea to invest in a professional service. 

However, if the leak has already occurred, an expert professional from Rhino Foundation Systems can visit your home to uncover the cause of the leak before designing a custom-fit strategy to repair the issue. Designed to create a basement that’s safeguarded for many years to come, you can start to enjoy the space again once the process is complete. 

How Do We Waterproof Basements?

At RFS, we use three key methods in our basement waterproofing projects:

  • Interior Sealants
  • Interior Water Drainage
  • Exterior Basement Waterproofing

Each created to ensure that your home/office building is protected from moisture. Varying from temporary to long term solutions, we will discuss with you the best course of action for your individual building.

Concrete Leveling 

Alongside foundation repair and basement repair, we also offer a concrete leveling service. Drains and gutters are commonly the root cause of this issue – resulting in erosion that affects the concrete settlement. 

An efficient and inexpensive technique, it is often under the umbrella of concrete lifting and mud jacking. The ideal way to fix settlement issues that you are facing with your concrete, it’s a long term solution.

Concrete Repair 

Over the years, concrete can become damaged due to a variety of reasons. From the freezing of trapped water to expansion, bacterial erosion and physical damage, it can result in cracks and holes throughout the slabs. If you are in need of a concrete repair service, RFS is the ideal company to choose. 

Using a variety of methods, we will ensure that your concrete looks as good as new – without you having to fork out on expensive replacement slabs. Filling the holes/slabs with specially designed repair mortar, you will be able to enjoy the pathway as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost for foundation repairs in Salt Lake City, Utah?

The pricing for foundation repairs is mostly dependent on the damage done to the foundation. If the home or building is already in the process of sinking, then you could be looking at costs upwards of $15,000. If the problem was caught early, and the damage is minimal in the form of leaks or small cracks, on average, the cost is around $2,000-$5,000, but that is much more inexpensive than the $15k clients would pay for a sinking home.

What is the importance of Concrete Lifting in Salt Lake City, Utah?

The primary reason concrete on the exterior of a house needs to be lifted is because of the danger it poses to not only to the family of a household, but to any visitors as well. An uneven sidewalk or concrete slab on the walkway leading up to a building can be hazardous, causing many people to trip and fall, and it can even lead to water seeping down under the concrete, and potentially even the foundation. In many cases, this is the start of foundation problems for many household structures.

What are the most common problems with foundations in Salt Lake City, Utah?

Foundations can be disrupted by as little as moderate variations in the weather or the soil it rests on. Salt Lake City experiences dry climates, random rainy days, and a generally moderate amount of snow during the winter. This means that your home can experience flooding if the foundation isn’t secured properly, or it can even begin to sink because the snow or rain has drained into the soil that is naturally dry, causing it to shift around, which is what allows the house to move around.

What are some signs that a foundation may need to be repaired?

Many signs that your home may be damaged or in need of repairs are obscure, though there are many obvious ones that show up fairly early on as well. It is in your best interest to pay close attention to your house for any abnormalities, some of which may consist of:


  • Ability to drain water properly is poor
  • Visible cracks (obvious to hardly noticeable)
  • Windows and doors are warped or are more difficult to shut or open
  • Crinkled wallpaper
  • Major gaps between built in commodities (cupboards, shelves, boards, etc.)


As previously stated, some of these signs are obscure, such as the ability to drain water. There are other ways to check for these more obscure signs. For water drainage, check the dampness of soil in your yard if there has been little rain to understand how the drainage capabilities of your house are holding up.
