If we find that you are in need of foundation repair, we use underpinning products such as steel push piers and helical piers to get your foundation back to its original level and structurally sound again. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Each piers is then individually load tested. After testing, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers to level and stabilize the structure.
