This home had all of the classic signs of foundation settlement, from sticking doors and gaps in the door frame to unlevel floors, cracks along drywall seams, buckling drywall tape, and cracks in tile flooring. There were even cracks in the concrete around the home and in the poured concrete foundation walls. To remedy the situation, we used a series of helical piers. Helical piers are steel piering sections which are advanced deep into the ground to competent soil on which the home will now be supported. Heavy-duty foundation brackets are affixed at the top of the piers and sit right under the home's footing to support and even lift the home into it's original position. These piers are a permanent fix. This home is now in good shape and a sinking foundation is no longer a worry for these homeowners.
