Repair Solutions For Foundation Settlement
When a structure's foundation has experienced settlement, it is important to solve this problem permanently.
Advanced Foundation Repair LLC uses steel resistance or helical piers attached to the foundation based on the engineering requirements of the structure.
The steel piers are hydraulically driven to stable bedrock or load bearing strata and the weight of the structure transferred to the steel brackets attached to the foundation. This attachment is below the ground so nothing is exposed once the process is completed.
Each pier is load tested with a safety factor calculated to ensure a reliable permanent solution. The installation is fast and can be installed in limited areas. The structure is carefully restored back by lifting in unison on each pier or sections of piers.
Underpinning or piering is the foundation repair process, which transfers the weight of the structure that is sitting on unstable soil to bedrock or firm bearing strata by using steel piers.
