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.
