Stabilizing and Correcting a Settling Foundation with Push Piers in Westerville, OH

Sunday, January 20th, 2019 by Holly Richards-Purpura

It has been more than 20 years since they moved into their house. During that time, homeowners in Westerville, OH, have been keeping an eye on a potential problem with their foundation. One corner where two foundation walls meet indicated the foundation was settling. There were various cracks along the walls, as well as significant gaps between the blocks.

Concerned with the safety and structural integrity of their home, the owners decided to seek professional assistance. After hearing good things about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners were eager to contact us for further guidance.

They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the home and its problematic foundation walls. Our inspector then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

Solution

Foreman Ryan Toledo and his crew then installed several Push Piers underneath the settling foundation walls.

After digging down to expose the foundation’s footing, heavy-duty steel brackets were secured. Rugged steel tubes were then driven through the brackets to competent soils. The weight of the house was then transferred through the piers to load-bearing soil. This ensures no further settlement will occur, and the home’s wall can be lifted back to level. The interior wall cracks closed considerably as the walls were leveled, and any cracks also were filled and repaired.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their house will be a safe and stable living environment for many years to come because of these trustworthy repairs.
