The foundation is now supported by the piers that have been drilled down past the weak soil and anchored into a firmer and more secure level of the soil. The structure is now protected from any future shifting of the unstable soil closer to the surface.
Why Helical Piers?
There are several reasons that foundation repair experts use and endorse helical piers. They are low cost when compared to the expense of replacing someone’s entire foundation. Additionally, helical piers are installed quickly and with little disruption to the home. Because of this, there is no need to leave the property during the repair.
The equipment needed to install helical piers is portable and designed to fit in tight or awkward spaces.
This system of repair tackles both the cause of foundation settlement and guarantees the home will not shift again in the future. In some cases, helical piers can even lift foundations back to their original levels, preventing further damage and resolving existing damage.
