In Fairway, Kansas, the weather along with the expansive soil can cause your foundation to shift. Expansive soil expands when it is wet and shrinks when dry. This constant shifting and of the soil also causes your foundation to shift. Knowing the signs of foundation failure is important. Some of the signs of foundation failure are:
We use products for underpinning such as helical piers and steel push piers. Helical piers are often used when challenging soil conditions are present. They transfer the load of the structure through weak soil to stronger soil that can hold the weight of the structure. Helical piers thread into the ground, minimizing installation time and does not require large excavation work. After installation, the entire weight of the structure is transferred to the load bearing soil.
Steel push piers are an end-bearing pier that does not rely upon nor require skin friction to product support. Each pier is field load tested after installation. 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.
Bowing and leaning walls are often caused by hydrostatic pressure pushing against your foundation walls from the outside of the home. The pressure causes the walls to bow. These helical tiebacks are installed inside the basement wall through a small hole. With exterior excavation, the wall can be immediately pulled back to its original design level.
