Our Foundation Repair Process
First, the team of experts at FOUNDATIONS ON THE LEVEL will perform a no-cost inspection and sit down with you to go over the results.
We want your home to be secure and comfortable, and you need to be confident that your repairs are done right.
And that a contractor isn't selling you on repairs you don't need.
If we determine that your home is suffering from foundation failure, the next step is to start on the fix.
We use helical piers and resistance piers to stabilize your home and return your foundation's stability.
Foundation piers are either drilled or sunk into the soil until they reach a load-bearing strata of soil or bedrock.
Once the piers are installed, they are attached to the foundation through brackets and the home is hydraulically lifted until it is level again. The load of the house is then transferred onto the piers so it is no longer sitting on the unstable soil that caused the problem in the first place.
We then fill in the small excavations needed to install the piers and the project is complete
