Signs of Foundation Failure
While most commercial foundations are more extensive than residential ones and therefore show different signs of damage, there are still some telltale indicators to look out for. For example, if you find that there is any sinking or settlement in your floors, walls, or doorways, this is almost certainly a sign of an issue. Just as much so, things like floor and wall cracking, or crumbling concrete can often allude to defects and damage. So, if you notice these or anything else similar, you know that you need to give our team a call.
One of the most effective methods of foundation restoration that our team uses is underpinning. This is an ideal choice to take if terrain and soil problems are leading to the failure in your footings. By accessing the base of your foundations, we can fit galvanized steel piers into place and position them to take the weight of your foundations. As each one is put into place, this gradually redistributes the mass and allows even strength to be reapplied to the structure, as a whole. At the same time, this can even help to strengthen the soil beneath, meaning that underpinning can be one of the most permanent fixes for any foundation.
On the other hand, if the site is not going to permit us to perform an underpinning method, we will instead opt for a piling method. Making use of helical piles and reinforced concrete filler material, we create secure shafts to inject concrete into, providing significant reinforcement for your foundations. This is a great option to use in challenging areas and in many cases, can be a last-ditch solution to severely failing footings.
For us, the most important thing to achieve with any foundation repairs is longevity. If you are coming to us for help, we want to make sure that we can give you a guaranteed remedy for the long term. So, our team takes great care in the calculation and precision of each task, always aiming to achieve the most permanent thing.
