Piers Installation Down in Mesa, AZ
Situation: This house down in Mesa, AZ, was struggling with a serious foundation settlement problem, so the house was sinking along with the concrete slabs from the inside. As the perimeter of the house was moving down, the whole structure was getting more damage.
Challenge: Since the house got built over a conventional foundation, the perimeter and the concrete slabs from the inside are not fully connected. Therefore a separate method needs to get implemented to lift the concrete slabs once the perimeter gets lifted. Another challenge was to determine the most affected area by the foundation settlement.
Solution: The solution was to install helical piles to stabilize the foundation and support the house. Helical piles are steel shafts screwed into the ground to act as anchors. They are used to prevent further settlement and structural damage. The helical piles were installed along the perimeter of the house and beneath the slab in order to provide the necessary stability. Once the perimeter got lifted, our concrete crew lifted the concrete slabs from the inside by injecting an expansive foam material under the slabs.
Conclusion: After installation, the house was back on the level, and the homeowner had a permanent solution to their foundation settlement problem. Thanks to Arizona Foundation solutions, this family will have peace of mind that their house's foundation is stronger than ever before, and structural cracks will e part of the past.
Stem Wall Repair in Mesa, AZ
Situation: This family, down in Mesa, AZ, was facing some serious corrosion problems in their concrete stem wall. The stem wall was deteriorating in a fast-paced manner, and the owners needed to get help quickly. After doing some research, they figured out what the problem was, but they did not know a permanent solution, so they called AZFS.

After analyzing the stem wall, we were able to determine which components could be salvaged and which ones needed to be replaced. Once we had identified the components that were still usable, we could begin the repair process.
Solution: We removed the existing damaged components and replaced them with new ones that were designed to the appropriate standards of strength and durability. We also reinforced the existing components with additional anti-rust materials. Finally, we backfilled the area with fresh cement to keep everything in place.
Conclusion: The stem wall got fully repaired and is corrosion free. Thanks to Arizona Foundation Solutions, this family will never have to worry about oxidation in their concrete stem wall.
