Settling soil creates additional pressure on a foundation wall and can lead to cracking. The cracks are unsightly and bring down the value of homes!
Whether the soil under this home wasn't properly prepared or erosion, flooding or other things we can not help occurred, this home is settling and feeling the damages.
The piers are driven deep below your home in sections until the piers reach strong supporting soils. Steel brackets connect piers to the foundation, effectively transferring the weight of the structure to the deeper load-bearing soil.
In many scenarios, push piers not only stop settlement but lift the foundation back to its original position, closing cracks and improving window and door operation.
This Tennessee home was in serious need of our help! It seems that the soil that this home was built on was not meant for something as heavy as a home to be built on it. Soil with poor load-bearing capacity can give way under the weight of a house, causing cracked foundation walls and jammed doors and windows. To solve settlement problems, steel push piers are "pushed", or driven, until they reach more stable soil. A steel bracket connects each pier to the foundation to prevent foundation settlement. Brackets are often used along with hydraulic jacks to lift the structure back to the original position.
This family can now rest easy knowing their home's foundation won't crumble underneath them!
