How Do We Fix It?

August 21st, 2015 by

The most common foundation repair is “underpinning”. Deep foundation systems such as helical piles or micropiles are installed along the area of foundation to be repaired. After the installation is complete, the piles are connected to your existing foundation using engineered steel brackets. The load of the structure is then transferred from the soil to the piles using a hydraulic lifting and leveling system. During the loading process, the foundation can be raised or lowered depending on the need of the structure to return to level. There are many foundation types, and some require a different approach for repair, but there are solutions to all foundation problems. We have the knowledge and expertise to determine the best repair option available for your particular foundation.
