What is Foundation Settlement Repair?

Foundation settlement occurs when a building’s foundation sinks or moves due to changes in the soil beneath it. This can lead to various structural problems, such as cracks in walls or uneven floors.

Foundation settlement repair is the process of stabilizing and leveling a foundation that has experienced settlement. There are various methods to repair foundation settlement, including installing piers or helical anchors, mudjacking, or foam injection.

A professional foundation settlement repair service can assess the severity of the settlement and recommend the best solution to restore the stability and safety of the building. If left unaddressed, foundation settlement can lead to further damage and compromise the structural integrity of the building, so it is important to address any signs of settlement promptly through settlement repair.

Some telltale signs that you may need foundation settlement repair are:

  • Tilting chimneys

How to Fix Foundation Settlement

Foundation settlement is a common issue faced by many homeowners. It can lead to significant structural damage to your home and may cause safety hazards. There are several methods to fix foundation settlement, including foundation piers, helical piers, and concrete slab lifting.

  • Foundation piers are steel or concrete posts that are driven into the ground to support the foundation.
  • Helical piers are similar to foundation piers, but they have a helix-shaped blade that helps to anchor the pier to the ground.
  • Concrete slab lifting involves injecting polyurethane foam into voids under the foundation to lift and level the concrete slab. These methods are all effective in fixing foundation settlement, and a professional foundation settlement repair service can determine which method is best for your specific situation.

Foundation Piering

To repair the settlement problem, we install a series of push piers under the sinking foundation. These piers are attached to the slab of your building and driven down to sturdy bedrock. This allows the piers to lift and stabilize the building by transferring the weight onto the piers and off of the loose soil, preventing any future settlement problems.
The pier installation process consists of the following steps:

The piering process is both safe and effective. Our team is trained regularly to ensure they are properly loading the building onto the piers, this will help ensure everything is done to correctly repair your sinking foundation.

If you have any type of sinking or settling foundation issues or you see cracks forming on your foundation, do not hesitate to contact us and have the professionals at Lamunyon evaluate your project and provide you with the best solution.
