Arizona Foundation Solutions Case Studies: MoistureLevel® System installed in Scottsdale home

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 by Freddy Flores

Challenge

Home showed signs of structural stress, contractors had advised this client that her home was settling, and that she should be prepared for an expensive repair quote from a foundation repair company.  

With many visible signs of structural stress, assumptions were being made about the issues affecting the home.  The client was told to contact a company that can repair settlement.

Solution

AZFS conducted an engineered analysis of the home to determine the scope and severity of the issue.  The analysis showed that a foundation heave was more directly causing the damage to the home, and settlement was within industry standards.  Instead of expensive underpinning, a moisture level control system was installed to mitigate the heave.

Contractors had told this client that her home was settling.  If she would have contacted a company that only offered underpinning, an incorrect and far more expensive remedy would have been applied.
