We provide top quality products, installed by expertly trained crews, for solid, long-lasting results. In one case featured here, we used helical piers to repair a settling foundation and stair-step crack in an exterior wall.
This particular home needed several piers installed along the foundation. The wall was settling and causing a stair-step crack. We began the installation and found that the piers were going much deeper than originally anticipated. We find deep installations due to soil quality, surface friction, pier type, and other possible variables. These piers went 50 feet deep, rather than the standard 25 feet we generally see.
The first pier went over 50’ before it reached the required torque. (Using the standard, single 10” helix, piers usually torque at about 25’.). Judging this property to have unusual depths, we adjusted our strategy on the next piers. On the second and third, we added a 14” extension plate, knowing the first had gone so deep. Both of these went about 20’ to torque at a shallower depth.
Unfortunately, certain conditions are often unpredictable before beginning the project. These depths are unusual, but not impossible. We quote to an estimated depth to the best of our ability; anything beyond that is priced per foot.
