Repairing a Foundation – How Our Company Can Fix a Foundation That Features Piers and Beams
Once you contact our business, our experts can thoroughly inspect the foundation that supports your home, and our specialists could replace numerous beams, repair the foundation, install multiple piers and increase the house’s stability. While we repair a pier and beam foundation, our experts can also add many shims to support the foundation, protect the piers and reinforce the beams.
Inspecting the Foundation and Completing Multiple Repairs
Gradually, moisture can weaken a pier and beam foundation, and eventually, cracks may form within the foundation. Subsequently, water could affect the concrete, damage the walls and weaken the floors. If the basement contains moisture, mold could also form within the basement, and the mold may release airborne spores that can significantly reduce the quality of the indoor air.
Before our specialists repair a foundation, our experts will thoroughly evaluate the concrete, the beams, the basement, and the floors. The specialists could also inspect the durable joists, which can support the foundation.
Preparing the Job Site
After our experts inspect the foundation, the technicians can disconnect numerous types of utilities. Consequently, our specialists could prevent damage, protect the electrical wires, safeguard the pipes and minimize the project’s cost.
Examining Multiple Tunnels
The technicians can create several tunnels that will allow the experts to access the foundation. The tunnels could contain large lights, multiple types of tools, and hydraulic equipment. Once the experts enter the tunnels, the specialists can inspect the concrete, the beams, and the pilings.
Lifting the Pier and Beam Foundation and Installing New Piers
Our company can utilize hydraulic equipment that could lift the pier and beam foundation, and the hydraulic devices will safely stabilize the concrete. Subsequently, our experts can install new piers that will support the foundation. The piers contain galvanized steel, and the devices can withstand excessive moisture, additional pressure, and extra weight.
Once our specialists install the piers, the experts can utilize a hydraulic device to push the piers into the soil. This technique could significantly improve the stability of each pier, and the strategy can prevent the foundation from shifting. While our company repairs a foundation, we could also install concrete beams. These components can support the floor, distribute the extra weight and stabilize the walls.
Adding Many Shims and Increasing the Durability of the Foundation
The technicians may install multiple shims that will stabilize the pier and beam foundation. Many companies frequently utilize durable shims that contain steel; however, some contractors may install shims that consist of wood.
Evaluating the Pier and Beam Foundation and Cleaning the Yard
Once our experts repair a pier and beam foundation, the specialists will cover the tunnels, replace the soil and remove the heavy-duty equipment. Subsequently, we can replace the shrubs, the flowers, and the outdoor decorations, and our employees will remove numerous types of debris.
