Unstable soil conditions play a huge role in the stability of your home’s foundation; while a high moisture content will create hydrostatic pressure and could cause your basement walls to deflect, dry or extremely wet soils can cause your home to settle. The soil’s moisture content directly effects the bearing capacities of the ground your home depends on. The experts at Foundation Restoration specialize in defending your home’s foundation against the forces unstable soil can create.

Helical piers are much like a large screw, they are drilled deep into the ground to stable soil that bear the weight of the structure. Once the pier has hit load-bearing strata a bracket is positioned on top of the pier and fastened to the footing. Hydraulic lift cylinders are then installed and the process of lifting the foundation starts. Once the allowed amount of lift has been achieved, the hydraulics are removed. At this point the structure is stable and the piers can be buried. This whole process is generally completed in a few days and comes with a transferable lifetime warranty.
