Indianapolis, IN has a climate that can go from one extreme to the other. These climate conditions can cause a foundation to become damaged due to changes in the soil beneath the foundation. As the soil is constantly moving, so it the foundation or your home or business. This movement of the foundation will cause foundation failure if not taken care of before failure occurs. There are some signs to look for throughout your property that may indicate a problem:
If you see any of these signs, it is important to have an experienced foundation repair contractor come and inspect your building. My Foundation Repairs has contractors in Indianapolis, IN that can come and give you a free inspection and offer the best foundation repair solution for your needs. Our contractors use only the best foundation repair products in the industry. They are manufactured in the USA by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in foundation repair products.
The contractors at My Foundation Repairs will inspect your home or business and if there is a need for foundation repair, we will offer you the best solution to get the repair done. We use underpinning products from ECP such as steel push piers and helical piers. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Each pier is then individually load tested and through the use of hydraulic jacks, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers to lift and get the foundation stabilized again.
ECP steel piers belong to a family of patented foundation repair products. These ECP steel piers are the standard for all piering methods in the foundation repair industry. They are the top choice for professional foundation repair contractors including the contractors at My Foundation Repairs.
ECP helical piers are like a large screw and they are an excellent choice for foundation repair when light structural loads, unstable rock basement, or very deep load-bearing layers are present.
My Foundation Repairs uses helical tiebacks or wall plate anchors to repair bowing or leaning walls. Helical tiebacks are large, screw-like devices that are installed on the interior of the wall through a small hole that is drilled. Then, with exterior excavation, these helical tiebacks pull the wall back to its original level. Wall plate anchors are installed in the ground adjacent to the bowing walls and attached to the wall with a metal rod. Then the rod is tightened and the wall is straightened.
