These are some of the things that cause foundation problems in your home. Most of the structural damage is caused by shifting or sinking foundations. As the concrete shifts or sinks, the home becomes less stable and cracks may start to form. Some of the problems you may notice include:
Fortunately, Pro Foundation Technology specializes in providing you with effective and affordable foundation repair solutions for your home. The first of these solutions is to install helical piers or steel push piers. These piers are used to stabilize and lift foundations that have started to settle into the ground. The piers are driven into the ground under the foundation until they are anchored in stable soil deep beneath the surface. Then, the foundation’s weight is transferred onto the piers so that the home can be lifted back to the proper level.
For shifting foundations, which are normally the cause of bowing or leaning basement walls, helical tiebacks can be used to pull the walls back into place and reverse the shifting of the foundation. The tiebacks are a lot like helical piers, except they are screwed into the ground horizontally instead of vertically. This allows them to counteract pressure on the foundation to straighten foundation walls.
