While we can repair a cracked foundation wall, that does not address the reason the crack appeared. Our solutions focus on the cause of the issue, which is most likely unstable areas around your home’s foundation. United Structural Systems utilizes pier systems to lift and stabilize your foundation. There are several types: 

  • Concrete Piers
  • Helical Piers
  • Steel Piers

Each type of pier has its own set of benefits and can be used for different applications. Our Charleston foundation repair experts will evaluate your individual situation and recommend the best pier solution.
