My Foundation Repairs contractors offer foundation repair using products that are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in the manufacturing of foundation repair products in the industry. Foundation settlement occurs due to several reasons. Some of these are:
If you suspect that you are in need of foundation repair, let the professionals at My Foundation Repairs give you a free inspection and offer you the best solutions and products for your repair needs. The ECP products provide the highest quality products in the most economical manner. We use underpinning products to get your foundation back to its original level and stabilized again.
Helical anchors are used for foundation repair when there is light structural loads, unstable rock basements or very deep load-bearing layers are present. These helical anchors are like a large screw that are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil until they reach a solid soil layer. Then each helical anchor is load tested and the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers.
ECP steel piers are an excellent choice for foundation repairs on settling foundations. The ECP steel pier is an end-bearing pier that does not rely upon nor requires skin friction to product support. Each pier is load tested after installation. Steel piers are able to develop a factor of safety because the piers are installed and load tested individually using the maximum weight of the structure as the reaction force. After each steel pier is load tested, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers. Your foundation will be level and stabilized for many years to come.
Bowing or leaning walls are caused by foundation settlement and hydrostatic pressure pushing onto the foundation walls. My Foundation Repairs uses ECP wall anchors to fix bowing or leaning walls. These wall anchors are installed by drilling a small hole onto the interior wall, then with outside excavation, the wall is pulled back to its original level.
ECP micro-piles are a small diameter drilled and grouted friction pile. These micro-piles are used to repair settlement on slabs, porches, driveways and more. Each pile includes steel elements that are bonded into the bearing soil or rock. Micro-piles do not rely on end-bearing capacity, so there is no need to establish the competency of the rock beyond bond-depth. They are installed quickly with little disruption to the site.
