A homeowner in Northglenn, CO, contacted Complete Basement Systems to address a garage floor that was sinking and settling. This ranch style single-story home also had issues with brick walls separating. It appeared to be that one corner of the home was noticeably affected.
The solution to stabilize movement in the home was to install Helical Piers to support the foundation.
First, we exposed the footing and prepared it for the bracket. Rugged steel helical piers were then mechanically driven into the soil. These steel helical piers were installed to appropriate depths and capacities, preventing future settlement. Heavy-duty steel foundation brackets were then connected to the helical piers and attached to the footer of the foundation. The weight of the structure was then carefully transferred from the original unstable soils, through the piers, to the competent soils or bedrock, ensuring permanent stabilization.
