Piering can restore a sinking or settling foundation
If a home or commercial building has been built on soil that is too weak to support the structure, or on clay dirt, which can shrink or swell, it may lead to potential issues with the foundation such as cracking, shifting or settling. Foundation piering can solve these issues by stabilizing and correcting the foundation problems caused by these poor soil conditions.
During the repair process, our expert installers will use either helical piers or push piers to stabilize your structure. In this piering process, the foundation piers are placed deep underground so that they can anchor into stable and stronger soil layers. The type of piering service is determined based on soil conditions, the weight of the structure, or the type, but both options come with the advantage of being able to correct both light and heavy structure as well returning the failing foundation back to its original position. Oftentimes, there is minimal disturbance to the landscaping or area around your home’s foundation, and the process can be completed in a matter of days.
Because every foundation is different, we recommend scheduling a free consultation with one of our foundation repair experts to discuss your piering options.
