General Information concerning stabilization procedures and Helical Pier Foundation Systems

After several years of study, we have selected the Helical Pier Foundation System for we feel it is the best for residential homes, commercial, and industrial uses. This system uses a wide variety of under-pining and tie back techniques, as well as new construction techniques. Most foundation problems are a result of poor soil, not poor construction, and the structural loads must be transferred deep into the stable soil and rock in order to create the vertical load necessary for upper stability.
After using and reviewing other systems, such as magnum, Perma-Jack, steel push pins, and concrete alone, we found that they don’t meet all the requirements. The Helical Pier System is the only system that meets all National Code Approvals. In the latest ICC evaluation service incorporate report re-issued in November 1, 2005, the Helical Pier System is the only one that meets all the building regulations in the West Virginia BOCA National Building Code.
As a rule, we realize that the Helical Pier Foundation System is more expensive, but they also offer a lifetime warranty if used properly. Also with using this system we only use National Code approved materials to solve settlement and tie back problems. Whether it’s new, repair, or retro-fit the Helical Pier Foundation System offers under-pining and tie-back which we can use in limited access/ high capacity foundations. Instant footer/ instant loading has been proven to be highly successful with areas such as residential homes, industrial plants, football stadiums, baseball stadiums, basketball stadiums, schools, churches, restaurants, convenient stores, auto supplies, Post Offices, gas stations, hospitals, apartment buildings, office buildings, stair towers, and elevator shafts. In other words, this system is limited only by your imagination.
We do not mean to imply that we are the only foundation repair contractors; however, our chief foundation diagnostician holds a degree in Bachelor of Science & Design and a Masters in of Science & Soil Engineering. He is also a graduate of the American Inspector’s Institution and throughout the years, he has worked with numerous engineering problems to supervise quality foundation repairs in varying conditions, so he’s qualified to fully evaluate foundation problems.
Symptoms of Foundation Settling Problems:
  1. Foundation walls that are bowed or buckled
  2. Doors and windows that stick/don’t open properly
  3. Cracks in foundation walls, both vertical and horizontal
  4. Cracks in exterior walls
  5. Cracks in interior walls and ceilings
  6. Sunken or buckled interior concrete floors
Sinking foundations, cracked and buckled walls, and uneven floors are common problems faced by some quarter-million homeowners. Home owners and other structures situated on unstable soils settle when their foundations are subject to extreme moisture conditions or lack proper drainage. A sinking foundation may result in structural damage to your home and loss in your investment.
Our motto is “You never get a second chance to make a first impression”. Working with foundation repairs and stabilization, it is imperative that we get it right the first time. This is why we are always continuing to find the best materials and systems for foundation and stabilization procedures.
