The contractors from My Foundation Repairs uses underpinning products such as steel piers and helical piers to lift and stabilize your foundation.
Steel piers are an excellent choice for structural foundation repairs for settling foundations. These steel push piers support and stabilize your structure’s load bearing walls by transferring the weight of the structure from weaker soils onto the steel piers. These piers are driven deep into the ground to load bearing soils. Steel push piers are the most common foundation repair product that is used today for foundation repair. They are an end-bearing pier that does not rely upon nor requires skin friction to produce support. They are installed and load tested individually using the maximum weight of the structure as the reaction force. During the load transfer, high pressure hydraulic jacks are placed at multiple locations, reducing the load on each resistance pier to only the design working load. These jacks are connected to a manifold system to provide a synchronized lift.
Helical piers are an excellent choice for foundation repair and stabilization when light structural loads, unstable rock basements or very deep load bearing layers are present. They are a screw type anchor that are ideal for foundation repair applications such as for porches, steps, stairs, chimney, and much more. All of our foundation repair specialists use only the best underpinning products in the industry. They are manufactured by Earth Contact Products, the very best.
If you have bowing or leaning walls, our contractors use helical tiebacks. They are screwed into the soil horizontally through a small hole that is drilled into the affected wall. Then they are tested for strength. With external excavation, the wall is pulled back to its original level and the holes are filled and site cleaned up. The installation is very quick and requires very little machinery.
