Why Foundation Replacement May Not Be the Best Option

It may seem to make more sense to replace something that is broken rather than trying to repair it, but with foundation repair thats just not the case.

In order to replace a home's foundation, the soil around the home is excavated. Once the soil has been removed, the house is lifted up and supported so that the foundation walls and floors can be taken down for replacement. This is an extremely disruptive and costly solution, and it doesn't even address the real problem; the soil.

Complete Basement Systems uses Push and Helical Piers for foundation repair. These piers are driven past the unstable soils, usually to bedrock. The piers are installed along the foundation footing and the home can then be lifted and/or stabilized. Piering is much less invasive, less costly and a more effective solution for addressing structural issues.
