Lenexa, Kansas has cold winters and hot humid summers. These weather conditions along with the expansive soil in Lenexa, can mean that homeowners and business owners in Lenexa need to be aware of foundation problems. Because of the expansive soil, which means that it expands when wet and shrinks when dry, your home’s foundation shifts and sinks. Some of the signs to be aware of for foundation failure are:
If we find that you do have foundation failure, the solution we use is underpinning. This is done with helical piers and steel push piers. These piers are driven deep into the ground past the unsuitable soil to load bearing soil. Each pier is individually load tested then the entire structure is hydraulically lifted onto the piers to level and stabilize it. These piers can also be used for crawlspace repairs.
For bowing or leaning walls, we use helical tiebacks. These helical tiebacks are installed from inside the basement wall through a small hole. With exterior excavation, the wall is immediately pulled back to its original level.
