    Ms. Henergy's house was sinking and she noticed her bathroom walls were cracking, because of the settling of the home. She gave us a call and we came up with the solution to install four Push Piers under the footing of the corner of the house. 

     

    We were able to lift and level out the corner of the house, which then pushed back the cracking into the bathroom. She was very happy to have the house back to being level as well as seeing the crack in her bathroom back together.

    A job we did for Mr. Jackson, 

    The contractor that built his house ( a little over 3 years ago) had installed an illegal sump pump. About three months after they moved in Mr. Jackson noticed water in his crawl space. He dug a hole just big enough for a 5-gallon bucket, put the sump pump back in, and ran a hose from the pump. He did this to help pump the water out. But Didn't know that what he did was illegal. 

    We came and set his sump-pump up the right way.

    There were six Push Piers installed on the southwest portion of the foundation where the foundation had settled.

With the installation of the Push Piers, it provides the house with more stability and prohibits any future foundation settlement.

    Mr. Atkinson called because he had water coming into his basement. He lived in a manufactured home that was leaking. There were cinderblocks on one side of the home and new ones on the other side of the house. The foundation was on an older farm house-single wide. When they put the double-wide home on, it was leaking shortly after they had moved in 2004. So they called because they need it to get fixed!

     

    We found that the water was coming in from their egress window, so to fix this we installed a new Egress window well duct, Sump Pump and Waterguard and the Basement To Beautiful Panels

    The Waterguard was installed to collect water and drain it to the Sump Pump.

    Sump Pump was installed to pump all the water out of the basement, as well to pump any further water from coming in.

    The Basement To Beautiful Panels are engineered foam panels with integral studs, that are fastened directly to the foundation walls. The panel features a unique, advanced SilverGlo foam insulation with graphite infused throughout the foam. The graphite drives the insulation Value (or “R” value) of the foam up by approximately 24% over conventional Expanded Polystyrene foam by lowering its thermal conductivity.

    Mr. Atkinson was very pleased with the work! And left us a nice review on google

    Mr. Lind called because he had a concrete window well that was cracked and caving into the basement. So we excavated the soil behind the wall so we could get a better idea of what we were working with.The concrete wall was pushed off the footing by 5 1/2 inches. So we installed our Geo-Lock wall anchors, and we were able to straighten the wall and secure it from any further movement. Mr. Lind was very pleased that we could get the wall back to being straight.

    The corner of this customer's house was settling. We attempted to install PushPiers, But realize the structure was too light. So we installed HelicalPiers.

Ram Jack deep-driven steel helical piers are 2-3/8″ or 2-7/8″ diameter sectional pipe piles. They are hydraulically rotated into the ground to bear on rock or a solid soil stratum.
