This Eagar home was built in 1981 & was showing symptoms of a potential foundation problem. Damage included wall cracks & floor cracks that were getting worse.
The Homeonwrs contacted Arizona Foundation Solutions to assess the damage & compose a repair plan (a Forensic Engineered Report was provided). The repair plan included 11 288 Supportworks Push Piers & approximately 8 feet of crack stitching.

Stairstep cracks are a common symptom of foundation movement in block and brick homes. After installing foundation support piers and lifting to the highest practical limit, stairstep cracks often close.
After examining the home and performing the manometer survey, we believed the home could be experiencing foundation settlement at the north side, the south side and the west side of the home.
Our solution to the foundation settlement issue this home was experiencing was to underpin* the areas that are experiencing movement. *Underpinning is the process of installing deep foundation elements called piles. These piles are driven down past the unstable soils and are then locked up into load bearing strata that can support the loads that are put on them.
The owners of this Pine, Arizona home reached out to us after seeing signs of a foundation problem, specificly stairstep cracking.
