FOUNDATION REPAIR

We use the helical pier foundation system because this method stabilizes a home while preventing significant disturbances to surrounding property or nearby landscaping. During the repair process, we first screw the helical pier into the ground until a stable soil area is reached, and once it is installed, we then place a bracket underneath the footing of the foundation to keep the pier in place. This bracket ensures that the foundation is supported by the pier. As a result, the foundation is fully stabilized. We handle the entire process, which includes:
 
  • Demolition, if necessary
  • Excavation
  • Pouring of footings
