Topeka, Kansas has soil that is clay which means it is an expansive soil. Expansive soil means that it changes in volume with the changing moisture conditions. When expansive soil gets too saturated with water, it expands and when it does not get enough moisture, it shrinks. This expanding and shrinking can cause the foundation of your home or business to also move and shift. When this happens, the structure becomes unstable. To know if this has happened to your home or business, you need to know the signs of foundation settlement. Some of these signs are:
If you notice any of these signs of foundation failure, contact the experts at Pro Foundation Technology to come and give you a free inspection.
We use helical piers or steel push piers to get your foundation back to its original level. These piers are driven deep into the earth, past the expansive soils to stable soil. The weight of the structure is transferred from the weaker soils onto the steel piers, stabilizing it. All of the products we use for foundation repair are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in foundation repair products in the industry.
If you have bowing basement walls, we use helical tiebacks. These tiebacks consist of an inside wall plate, an outside anchor and a high strength rod that ties them together. The helical tiebacks will immediately pull the bowing or leaning wall back to its original level.
If you are building a new home or business, we can also install helical piers under the new construction below active soils so that your structure is anchored in stable soil.
With our experience and products, we will get your foundation repaired and you will be assured that it was done right.
