Most foundation and resulting structural problems are caused by a sinking or settling foundation. That is why the best repair option is a method called foundation underpinning. The underpinning products used to repair a sinking or settled foundation are helical piers or steel push piers. These piers are installed beneath the foundation through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. The foundation will be lifted and the structure stabilized, preventing future foundation problems.
