Our course of action for foundation repair is:

We use custom concrete cylinders that are cured for 30 days to guaranteed there cured to 5000 psi. Each cylinder has a steel connector rod used to stabilize the press cylinders as they are pressed down.

If problems do occur afterwards,we will adjust the foundation at no additional cost. This is backed by a lifetime transferable warranty.  For a quick overview, read the steps below.   It is a short explanation of the seamless process that will correct the settling foundation.

  • Step 1: Preparation

Altar site area to make sure any wanted landscape is safely removed before construction starts.  Any hard surface blocking access points will be demolished.  After site is fully cleared the digging will commence.  Usual access holes will be 3 to 4 ft deep.

  • Step 2: Insertion

Hydraulic pumps aid pressing in concrete cylinders that are set around a steel rod connector.  The cylinders are inserted until sufficient depth is reached. They are then topped with a concrete cap block.

  • Step 3: Rectify

Once the cap block is in place on all the cylinders, we begin to raise the structure. When the foundation is leveled we install custom cylinders with coated steel shims to keep the foundation from further settlement issues.

  • Step 4: finalization

Upon completion of the foundation repair, the soil is then returned to the installation area. As the soil is returned it is compacted to prevent any voids. For applications where poor drainage was a factor in the foundation damage,we correct the original issue to prevent foundation repairs to other areas of the structure.

 

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.  We are more than happy to explain this process and how the concrete pillars are the most sound solution to a settling foundation.
