Underpinning System: Distance is Key
Distance is very important because depending on the distance between each pier, the support provided will be different.
Underpinning System: Choosing Places
The location of each of the piers is crucial and is selected by our engineering department with the help of the foremen in charge of the project.
Underpinning System: How Deep Should We Dig?
Every house and every foundation is different; therefore, each location of each pier must be different depending on the Owners' goals and the house's needs.
Underpinning System: Wrong Angle
When drilling each of the piers down, our foundation experts need to make sure that the angle is perfect so each pier can be provided the support needed and expected.
Underpinning System: Last Assessment
Right before permanently attaching each pier with its assigned bracket, our foundation experts need to complete the last assessment of the current status of the house's foundation to determine if it is wise to lift the foundation back to its original position.
Underpinning System: Different Needs & Goals
Each room of a house might be different in some way; that is why they might need a different level of foundation support and different needs.
Underpinning System: Filling & Covering
In this step of the process, our foundation expert poured fresh new concrete into the hole to cover all the missing space and the brand-new pier that got installed.
Underpinning System: Final Look
Now each pier and permanently installed, and the house's foundation is stronger than ever before. Thanks to Arizona Foundation Solutions, this family will no longer have to face foundation problems ever again!
