Professional Foundation Settlement Repair - Foundation Piering

Settling and sinking are common problems in all homes and is usually caused by a lack of support for the foundation of your home. Foundation settlement is a common structural problem and can typically be solved quickly and permanently. It is caused usually by poor soil compaction around the home, which creates voids beneath your property that your home will eventually sink into. In rare cases it can also be caused by bad construction materials or techniques used during the time when the home was being built.

Foundation settlement can cause a number of issues in addition to structural damage. Because parts of your home are effectively falling into the ground when it is experiencing settlement issues wall cracks can occur which can cause basement waterproofing issues and will need to be repaired at the same time as the settlement is repaired.

How To Spot Foundation Settlement Issues

There are a number of ways in which you can identify foundation settlement in your home. Our experts are trained to spot these issues quickly and can accurately provide you with a repair estimate after a foundation inspection. Take a look below to see if you notice any of these signs of foundation settlement in or around your home.

How We Repair Sinking and Settling Foundations

Our team uses a patented helical pier system to lift the foundation of the home back to its proper level and to provide structural support for the home. These piers are driven into the soil underneath the home until they hit bedrock. Once this happens the home is lifted back to its normal position and supported by the piers and bedrock. This solution is perfect for both newer and older homes that are experiencing foundation settlement.

How Foundation Piers Work

Foundation piers are made from strong, solid, dependable materials that will stand up to the heavy loads and strains of supporting a house. Their main function is to address poor soil conditions around your home by transferring the weight of your home off of the failing foundation and onto the piers. When installed these piers will raise your home back to the proper level and provide structural support that will not fail. These can be installed either before construction begins or after a foundation settlement issue is found on your home.

Foundation Lifting With Foundation Piers

It is common that homes that experience foundation settlement will also see visible signs of that sinking. In addition to stabilizing your home foundation piers can also lift it back if it has sunken into the ground. This works because the foundation piers are driven until they reach soil that is compact enough to support the home. Once they reach this soil the home is lifted back to its original position.
