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.
