Solutions To Fix Your Crawl Space

Sometimes the soil supporting foundations in our area begins to settle, compromising the foundation. Could this be happening to your home? If you see signs like these, it is time to call  our Lexington helical piers installation contractors:

  • Floor and wall gaps
  • Tilting chimneys
  • Sticking windows and doors
  • Uneven floors
  • Cracking walls

Helical piers are basically a large screw system that is installed into the soil under your foundation. These piers are threaded down into soil that is capable of bearing the foundation’s load, lifting it back into its original position. This process stabilizes the foundation for many years to come, and prevents the damage that a sinking foundation can cause.

Helical piers are also recommended over a push pier system. What is the difference? Helical piers can support more of a load. They also take up less area then the push piers, and are installed independently of your home. Also, because of the nature of the helical pier system, they resist tension loads and compression. For all these reasons, the helical piers are favored by most structural engineers.
