Foundation Repair Case Studies: Sinking Foundation of Pocatello, ID Home

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018 by Reba Miller

Challenge

A displaced homeowner called in seeking a solution for his home that sunk on the back and left side causing severe damage to much of the home both inside and out. Doors and windows were sticking, cracks were visible on the inside through to the outside. The home was in very bad shape while being un-occupiable causing the entire family much stress. The concerned owner gave us a call hoping we could give him a solution in restoring the home to a stable, level state. We were happy to have our expert meet with him to show him what solutions we have to solve the issue quickly. Our System Design Specialist was able to determine that major foundation settlement occurred causing the structural damage to the home. During the initial visit the homeowner was presented with a Project Design that would fix the settling of the home.

Solution

With situations like these our Installation Experts are top-notch from start to finish. With extreme precision the crew commenced with excavating to a depth of 5 feet and a length of 16 feet along one exterior wall of the foundation, as well as another 73 feet along another exterior wall of the foundation. We installed Helical Piers and Sentry Seal 250. As the process of the home being lifted and leveled one could watch in amazement as the gaps in the walls and ceiling came to a close. Together, the design of our products and the repair work restored the house back to its original position and will prevent any additional sinking. Now this concerned owner can be rest assured that his house will remain structurally level.
