Photo Album: Helical Piers for a Settling Foundation in Denver, CO

Album Description

This home in Denver, CO had sunk a large amount on all sides of the home, causing large cracks on the inside and the outside of the home. Becoming increasingly concerned about the wellbeing of their home, the homeowners called Rod Martin's Complete Basement Systems to come do a full inspection of the home and determint the best solution for their failing foundation. Sending an engineer to the site, after a full inspection they determined that the best solution for the home was a helical piering installation on the peremiter of the home and seal the cracks within the walls to prevent any worsening.

Our foreman Augustin and his crew were sent out to the job site, where they installed a total of 11 low profile helical piers, as well as 5 handheld piers around the home. Once completed, the foundation was permanantly stabilized and will no longer settle and crack further!
