Industrial Foundation Problems and Repair
Keeping industrial property properly maintained will increase annual revenue and reduce liability issues. Industrial foundation problems occur due to the constant vibration and pounding from machinery and the constant traffic. Industrial foundation problems also occur due to the constant changing in the moisture content beneath the foundation. As the soil moisture changes, it will cause the soil to heave or shrink, creating a constant shifting of the soil. As this soil shifting is taking place, the foundation that is sitting on it is also shifting and moving. So combining the heavy-duty machinery and the shifting of the soil, the foundation of the industrial structure may suffer over time.
Not all foundation repair contractors have the ability to repair industrial facilities. My Foundation Repairs uses contractors with experience and knowledge in repairing industrial foundations.

After the load testing is completed the structure is lifted onto the piers and the foundation is stabilized. These piers can be installed year-round without any major disruption. It is important to keep your industrial facility properly maintained. The contractors from My Foundation Repairs have
