How We Fix Foundations
Often, the cause of foundation problems is the soil underneath the building. If it isn't strong enough to support the weight of the home or business, it can start to shift or settle, weakening the support it is providing for the foundation.
In order to fix these issues, you must provide strong support for the foundation, the support it is not getting from the soil below.
These steel piers are sunk or drilled into the ground until the reach a strata of soil or bedrock capable of supporting the building's weight. The house is then hydraulically leveled and the foundation is attached to the piers via brackets. This transfers the load of the building off of the unstable soil and onto the piers, providing a lasting solution to your foundation woes.
We use piers from Earth Contact Products (ECP), the best in the industry. Keep your home safe and structurally sound with our foundation repair services here in Carlsbad, CA.
