10 Helical Piers installed in Longmont, CO

Friday, November 30th, 2018 by Lyndsie Sundvall

Challenge

This Longmont, CO home was experiencing a multitude of problems after the foundation started sinking from our volatile Colorado soils. The foundations vertical movement caused cracks in the brick wall around the perimeter of her home, cracks in the basement wall and ceiling, as well as the front and back doors having issues opening and closing. Knowing she had to take action as soon as possible to prevent further damage, she called the best in the foundation stabilization network, Rod Martin's Complete Basement Systems!

Solution

After her consultation, our awesome foreman Israel and his team set to work to restore her foundation to its original state. The team got to work by excavating deep into the sides of the house, through layers of soil and bedrock to get to the very bottom of her foundation. After exposing the footing of the home, the team prepared it for the bracket. Mechanically we drove, into the soil, rugged steel helical piers to stabilize her foundation. Installing 5 Helical Piers on the north side, and 5 on the south side, Israel and his team made sure that the piers were expertly placed to ensure their lifetime support guarantee. 

Once the piers were installed, the team was able to lift to it's original level. Not only did the piers resolve the foundation settling problems, but they prevent any future settling so this homeowner can live worry-free! Her foundation now won't budge, and the foundation cracks and are no more! She no longer has to be concerned about any more shifting, front and back door issues or future cracking again.
