As a leading concrete raising/Slabjacking contractor we were contacted recently by Foundation Supportworks Inc about partnering with their organization to help both of us grow our business.

After much discussion 1-855-752-2522 has decided to join forces with Foundation Supportworks/PolyLEVEL to better serve those with sinking and settling concrete.

FSI (Foundation Supportworks Inc) is a leading manufacturer of helical and push piers as well as their “smart jacks” for sagging floors and having recently entered the polyurethane Slabjacking revolution they have been looking for partners which share their vision of superior foundation repair methods such as our Geo-polymer injection Slabjacking along with FSI’s engineered foundation systems.

1-855-752-2522 looks forward to a long and productive partnership as we provide superior foundation solutions and services to our clients in Washington and Idaho.

Slabjack Geotechnical foundation repair and stabilization

 

A settled foundation is a serious problem, one that needs to be dealt with to preserve your valuable asset.

Helical and push piers are a method for stabilizing and raising settled foundations and have been used in thousands of installations across the United States.

After consulting with a building engineer, a plan is made for the placement and number of piers. Holes are dug at the appropriate locations along the foundation and piers are screwed or pushed deep into the ground as depth and pressures are measured and recorded. Once the target pressures are achieved the pier is cut off and a bracket is secured to the pier, under the foundation wall. Once all the piers are in position with their brackets they are snugged up and the settled foundation is hydraulically lifted into position. Once levels are verified the pier assemblies are buried and landscaping can be restored.

Costs for foundation leveling can vary widely. From a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands depending primarily on the number of piers required. Other factors that can influence the project cost are the length of the piers needed to attain load carrying capacity and unexpected objects such as boulders and rip rap.

As a general contractor dealing exclusively with settled concrete we are occasionally asked about settled foundation repair. In addition, there are times in the estimating process we determine the problem of settled concrete is actually the more serious problem of a settled foundation. As we have made these determinations we have been frustrated to find no qualified foundation leveling contractors in our service area to refer. If a repair Is needed a contractor from the west side of the state, if one is willing to make the trip, is required to make the repair.

With this reality, 1-855-752-2522 has recently trained with Pier-Tec and become a certified helical pier installer. This process allows your settled foundations support to be placed on solid piers twisted many feet into the ground until sufficient load bearing pressures are achieved. Used in thousands of installations helical piers are the preferred method to stabilize and level concrete foundations.

A settled foundation makes your home virtually unsellable, Pier-Tec helical piers permanently corrects settled foundations.

What can be done about a settling foundation?

 

Slabjack Geotechnical is now a certified installer of Pier Tech helical piers and we are excited to offer this service rather than refer it to a company hundreds of miles away.

What can be done about a settling  foundation? 

If you are dealing with the nightmare of a settling foundation here is what you need to know;

-In most cases it is repairable. While not an inexpensive repair, doing nothing is usually not an option unless you plan on walking away from the home. Here’s how to proceed;

First determine that foundation settling is the issue and not simply an interior slab settling. Slabjack Geotechnical is equipped to handle either problem but one requires a building and a geological engineering report the other doesn’t.

Once the determination is made that the foundation is settling the property owner hires the engineers, they will determine the position and the number of piers to be used. The soils engineer will be on site during the repair process in case obstructions such as large boulders are met to makes recommendations and/or approve changes in the placement of piers.

Most piering jobs are completed in a few days.

The cost for the pre-work reports runs about $4-7,000 with an additional $1850-$2150 per pier depending on depth and obstructions encountered. An average foundation repair job runs in the neighborhood of $15,000, not an insignificant amount.

If you have seen the tell-tale signs of settling; cracks in brick and stucco or sheet rock separation call us today, we can help.

Foundation piering for new construction

Foundation piering, long considered the solution for settling foundations is now being used more frequently in new construction. Why?

Foundation piering  for new construction makes sense! 

-Piers used in new construction enable homes to be built on steep slopes, slopes are prone to slides which undermine foundation support resulting in settling.

-Piers allow the stable construction of homes with weaker load bearing soils such as areas with a high water table, areas prone to flooding or bogs.

-Piers enable construction in areas with high concentrations of organic materials in the soil. Organic soils deteriorate over time causing settling.

-Piers greatly reduce the amount of concrete needed in a foundation as the load is carried by the piers not the concrete. The concrete acts primarily as a place for the wall plate to be attached.

If you are planning to build on less than optimal soil conditions consider helical or push piers as a way to insure a stable foundation.
