Level Check did a great job – very professional by explaining everything and left premises cleaned up and washed down after they finished the job – Mark was a great foreman keeping me informed thru the day.
Our Step-by-Step Pressed Pilling Foundation Repair Process
Our foreman and crew examine the property and begin preparation. Pier locations are marked, excavation begins, and any concrete in the pier location is jack hammered out to allow installation. Holes are dug beneath the grade beam at each pier to allow placement of equipment and pilings.
Using pressurized hydraulic equipment and the house weight, pilings are pressed down into place. As one piling is driven, another is placed on top and repeated until the pilings hit the point of refusal. When refusal is reached, a concrete block is placed between the last piling and grade beam.
After piling installation, the foundation is raised slowly and carefully in stages, starting with the lowest portion first. The foreman takes readings and supervises this stage to ensure proper lift. Once the foundation is elevated, steel shims are wedged under the grade beam on top of the piling.
The crew begins clean up by backfilling the piling holes. Any concrete that was jack hammered to access the pier is patched back. All debris is removed, and inspection of the home and yard is done to ensure a clean job site for customer approval during a final walk-through.
The foreman ensures all questions have been answered and the customer is fully satisfied with the job we performed.
A concrete slab foundation is in a marriage with the soil that lies underneath it. If the soil does not stay a consistent moisture, it affects the foundation. As the soil takes in more moisture it will expand, and as it dehydrates, it will contract. The moisture in the soil can change from multiple factors, such as large trees in your yard, faulty drainage problems, standing water and droughts. Those movements in the soil eventually put so much stress on the concrete slab that it cracks and that’s when you will begin to notice foundation problems inside your home.
