Push Piers Stabilize Foundation and Garage in Powell, OH

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Challenge

During the last few years of living in their house in Powell, OH, homeowners began to notice drywall and foundation cracks getting worse. These are common signs of foundation settlement.

The homeowners previously attempted to patch the visible cracks, but they were still concerned with the structural integrity of the home.

Hoping to find a permanent solution, they contacted Ohio Basement Authority. One of our certified inspectors completed a thorough inspection at the home, and suggested a reliable foundation repair method.

Solution

Per our inspector's recommendation, one of our expert crews installed seven Push Piers underneath the north, south, and east foundation walls in the home's attached garage.

Once crew members exposed the footing, heavy-duty steel brackets were secured. Rugged steel tubes were driven through the brackets to competent soils. The weight of the home was then transferred through the piers to load bearing strata. This ensures no further settlement will occur, and the home can be lifted back to level.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing the foundation of their home will be structurally stable for many years to come.
