foundation repair

Cracks in your walls, cracks around the base of your home, uneven doors and windows are often the result of foundation settlement. The vast amounts of shrinking and swelling clay make foundation settlement a severe problem resulting in cracking of slabs, footings, and walls. 

Foundation Technologies uses underpinning as part of the repair methodology to remedy settling foundations due to shrink swell clays, organic materials and for sinkhole subsidence remediation. It stabilizes and levels the foundations and slabs. Have a foundation issue? We can help.

The method uses a hydraulic ram to press interlocking steel segments into supporting soils or lime rock. Once the piles are properly embedded, a controlled and consistent lifting force is applied in the affected area and the pile and bracket are attached to the footing to become an integral part of the foundation system. The unstable soil conditions in the affected area are no longer a factor because the weight load has been transferred to a more stable soil stratum. The piles are end-bearing, not frictional in nature, meaning your home is ultimately resting on solid soils.

Foundation Technologies offers a wide range of foundation stabilization products including helical pilings, drilled piers, rotary washed underpins and even chemical grouting services.
