Foundation Repair Methods

Our specialists use a variety of foundation repair methods depending on what type of problem they find. These methods include:

Steel piers:

For installation, the ground is excavated around the foundation. Then the foundation bracket is mounted for the piering system and the steel pier is installed deep into the ground until it reaches a solid soil layer. After installation, the weight of the structure is transferred onto the piers.

Helical piers:

These piers look like a very large screw and are ideal for foundation repair applications such as support for porches, steps, stairs, and chimneys.

Helical tieback anchors:

Bowing or leaning walls can be repaired using helical tieback anchors. These tieback anchors are attached to the interior of the wall and tension is applied to straighten the wall and keep it from bowing in the future.

Plate anchors:

Plate anchors are part of the system for fixing bowing or leaning walls. These plate anchors are attached to the wall and the rod that pulls the bowing walls back to its original level.

Hydraulic slab lift piers:

These piers are used for sinking or settling slabs.

New construction piers:

Putting in piers before a foundation is poured will prevent foundation problems from ever beginning.
