This is a common foundation repair problem seen on homes both old and new. Typically, it is caused from poor soil conditions around the home, including poorly backfilled soil from the time when the home was being built, along with tree and vegetation roots in the earth causing problems. These issues can lead to the creation of voids beneath the home. Eventually, the home will begin to sink into these gaps in the earth, and you will notice that one or more sides of the foundation appear to be sinking deeper and deeper.
Reports have shown that Decatur, Morgan, Athens, and Limestone County have a very high water table, and this can cause a variety of structural issues, including a sinking home.
Noticeable sinking can be seen on one or more sides of the home
Chimney is tilting or pulling away from the structure
Garage door is cracked in spots or is not leveled
While many homeowners panic and think that the only solution to this problem is total wall replacement, it is no longer the only solution to the problem. There have been many advancements over the years in the repair industry, and the team at Don Kennedy and Sons can provide you with SafeBaseTM push and helical piers to take care of the problem.
These piering systems can support heavy loads and they have been used to stabilize a wide variety of residential and commercial structures. Each pier is installed with a full scale load test to ensure the best results.
The patented piers are installed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. Once in place, the weight of the home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves. Over time, this helps to stabilize, level, and strengthen the building.
