Much like the settlement of your foundation, shifting and moving foundations are serious problems that should not be taken lightly. If you notice these signs, you should consult a professional foundation repair contractor to take a look at it immediately. A moving foundation can lead to various issues throughout other areas of the home. The longer you wait to repair your moving foundation, the more expensive and troublesome the repairs will become.
There are many things that can cause a foundation to shift. Some of the most common causes are:
The best fix for a shifting solution is ton install steel foundation piers or helical anchors. These anchors and piers are used to stabilize the foundation and bring it back as close to the original position as possible. They are driven deep underground until they reach more stable soils beneath the constantly shifting layers of soil. Then, the weight of the structure is transferred onto them so that the structure can be stabilized and supported. These anchors and piers not only restore the foundation to its proper place, but they also prevent further foundation shifting from occurring.
Our steel piers and helical anchors are made by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in foundation repair products. This means that our anchor or pier installation services will keep your foundation stable and will last for years to come.
