What You Need to Know about Foundation Stabilization
The foundation of your home has one important job: to keep your home stable, safe, and upright. If we did not have a foundation on our homes, we would be building on un-level ground and would not have very long-lasting homes because they were not built with stability qualifications in mind.
Even with a modern foundation, floods, minor ground movement, and soil shifting can compromise the strength of your foundation, causing an array of structural problems such as tilting chimneys and walls, uneven flooring, and flooring that feels as though it’s sinking. This is not a D.I.Y. project, and KC Waterproofing is happy to offer our expertise.
Types of Stabilization Services
There are many ways in which we can stabilize your foundation depending on the particular situation. Nevertheless, our foundation stabilization services will make sure that your foundation will be stable and secure once again so it can perform its function seamlessly for many years to come.
Our foundation stabilization options include:
- Foundation Push Piers: Where the material bonds the foundation to a solid, firm soil or bedrock.
- Foundation Helical Piers: Has a similar installation process as the push piers, but bonds with the foundation by mounting a bracket.
- Slab Pier Systems: Using straight steel piers and brackets that have been installed underground, the slab pier supports your foundation at a greater depth.
