    Why You May Need Residential Foundation Repairs

    You may need a foundation repair if the consistency of the soil around your house has changed, if your home has settled crookedly, or if water damage has started to weaken your foundation. In some cases, the first signs that you need a foundation repair are cracks in your foundation, but in other cases, the first signs may happen inside your house. That can include doors that are hard to shut, windows that don’t shut, sloped floors, bowed walls, or wet basements. If you’re not sure, contact us to set up a consultation, and we can help you assess whether or not you need a repair.

    Protecting Your Home’s Foundation
    To protect your home’s foundation, always try to direct water away from your home. That requires gutters but also landscaping that slopes away from the home. Also, schedule timely repairs. If something appears to be wrong with your residential foundation, contact someone to fix the issue while it’s still small. Don’t wait for it to get larger and more expensive.

    Helical Piles

    Helical Piles consist of a shaft fabricated from either solid steel square bar or tubular steel. Welded to  the shaft are a series of helical plates.  The plates vary in diameter from 6 inches to 16 inches and typically have a thickness of 3/8 or 1/2 inch, depending on the application.  The standard lead shaft length of most products are 5 feet and 7 feet; however, other links may be specifically fabricated for specialized applications.  Helical piles are considered deep foundation elements.  They are usually installed into the soil to an average depth of 22 feet in the Piedmont region.  Extensions of various lengths are available and are supplied couplings and hardware for attachment to the lead section, allowing the helical pile to reach the desired depth.

    Helical piles may terminate with a pile cap that embeds into new

    concrete foundation or foundation underpinning bracket that attaches

    between the helical pile and the foundation footing or slab.

    This allows for the transfer of the load from the foundation, through the questionable soils into the helical pile.

    Resistance Piers

    Resistance Piers.  Atlas and ECP Resistance Piers belong to the family of underpinning products that are sometimes referred to as micropiles, push piers or pin piles.  These underpinning products are hydraulically advanced vertically into the soil using the structural weight of the building as a reaction force.  Resistance piers are in-bearing piers that do not rely upon, nor require, skin friction to produce support.  They are driven individually using the weight of the entire structure as a reaction during the installation.  During the load transfer and restoration effort, hydraulic jacks are placed at multiple pier locations and pressurized simultaneously.  Therefore, creating the ability of the system to develop significant factors of safety.

    Helical Slab Piles

    Helical Slab Piles are

    residential porch piers atlanta another variety of helical underpinning, and there are multiple piles to choose from with varying capacities.  These piers provide support for failing slabs in areas such as garages, basements and patios. They are installed through a cored hole in the concrete slab and secured with a specifically designed slab support bracket that ensures effective permanent support of the structure.

    Helical Tiebacks

    Helical Tiebacks are essentially helical piles serving in tension, and are very effective when addressing bowing walls, cracking walls and other problems with foundation walls. They screw horizontally into the soil mass on the opposite side of the wall where they generate capacity and secure the wall internally, similar to conventional concrete dead men.
