Is your crawl space contributing to foundation problems?
A good and solid foundation is the key to an extremely long-lasting home. However, what happens if the foundation got weaker because of natural factors such as soil movement and mold destroying the crawl space and even wooden components? Having an unstable crawl space can lead to floor cracks and sagging floors.
Piers Installation System: Is the location of every pier important?
The location of every pier is important because even if a big part of the house is settling, our foundation repair team needs to find key locations to provide full support and maximize performance in the right places to fulfill the house's needs.
Piers Installation System: How deep is enough?
Usually, our foundation repair teams drill each pier from 7 to 10 feet underground until the strata layer is reached to provide full support and stability.
Piers Installation System: Push Piers
AZFS has two different types of pier, and each pier has a different function. In this case, push piers are the best alternative since they perform better in rocky soils and for very heavy structures.
Piers Installation System: Last Assessment
Right before attaching each pier with its assigned bracket, our foundation repair team needs to complete a last assessment where they evaluate the current status of the foundation to determine if it is wise to lift the home's foundation back to its original position without causing more structural damage.
Piers Installation Final Look
After the piers are completely installed, our foundation repair team pours fresh concrete into the hole to fill it up and seal it.
Piers installation System: Protecting is Caring
Whenever our foundation repair crew goes to the project, they use plastic sheets to protect the area and separate the dug-out dirt from the rest to put t back once it's time to fill up the holes again.
