Below is a quick synopsis of the foundation repair products we offer, but be sure to schedule an inspection with a design specialist to learn more about how we can help you.
When your home is experiencing foundation settling, typically the most common repair method is installing foundation push piers. Push piers are used because they provide one of the best opportunities to lift the home back toward its original position, there is minimal disturbance from installation, they are quick to install, and they provide a permanent solution. Push piers are installed around the perimeter of a sinking foundation. The area next to the foundation is excavated to remove any obstacles and all dirt down to the base of the cement foundation. Then the footing for the push pier bracket is prepared by grinding the cement until it is flat to create a flush fit against your foundation. The bracket is bolted in place, and the steel piers are drive through the bracket hydraulically into the ground until they reach a point of resistance in load-bearing soil. This transfers the weight of your home onto the deep solid soils well below the surface so your foundation will stay in place. Using this resistance, structures are able to lift back into place closing cracks in bricks and gaps in walls. Push piers are a method of repair that provides permanent results, which are backed by Virginia Foundation Solutions’ lifetime, transferable warranty.
Although push piers are the most common foundation repair method used by Virginia Foundation Solutions, we also install helical piers and slab piers when a specific home circumstance calls for these. Helical piers are typically used in new construction, and to stabilize lighter constructions such as decks or stoops, but sometimes they are also used in place of, or to accompany push piers. Like push piers, helical piers are a underpinning solution that is drilled down into stable soil or bedrock to permanently stabilize or lift your home. Virginia Foundation Solutions provides a 25-year warranty on helical piers.
Slab piers are used for homes that are built on a concrete slab foundation, when settlement or sinking is occurring under the slab, rather than around the perimeter of the foundation. Similar to push piers and helical piers, slab piers are designed to be driven deep into the earth into load-bearing soil or bedrock, so that your floor can be supported by strong, competent earth. Virginia Foundation Solutions’ slab pier system can stabilize and restore concrete slabs damaged by settlement. Slab piers also provide an opportunity to lift your concrete slab back to its original position, often closing cracks and eliminating tripping hazards. We warranty our slab piers for ten years.
