The weather along with the expansive soil in Bonner Springs, KS can cause your home or business’ foundations to shift and create foundation failure. When the expansive soil beneath your home’s foundation is constantly shifting, this causes your home to also shift and settle.

If you see any of these signs of foundation failure, we will inspect your home or business and see if you are in need of foundation repair. We use products for underpinning such as helical piers and steel push piers.
Helical piers are steel shafts often used when challenging soil conditions are present. After installation, each pier is load tested then the entire structure is transferred onto the piers to level and stabilize the structure. Steel push piers are an end-bearing pier that is driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil until they reach a solid soil bed. During the load transfer, high-pressure hydraulic jacks are placed at multiple locations and connected to a hydraulic manifold, this reduces the load on each pier.
If you have bowing walls in your home, this is often caused by hydrostatic pressure pushing against your foundation walls. We install helical tiebacks to pull your bowing or leaning wall back to its original position. These helical tiebacks also strengthen the wall so that future problems won’t occur.
