Foundation Repair Photo Album: Helical Piers in Pocatello, ID
Have you noticed all the rain and snow is starting to cause your foundation to settle or sink? A recent customer of ours in Pocatello, ID called us with this very issue. We got them on the schedule to meet with our specialist Ryan. When he got out to the home he quickly realized they were going to need our Helical Piers if they do not want any more movement.
THE HELICAL PIER SYSTEM will permanently stabilize a home’s foundation and, in many cases, raise it back up. Engineered steel piers are “screwed” into the soil next to the foundation. Sections are added to reach appropriate depths and capacities, and the pier is then connected to the home’s foundation with steel brackets. Ultimately, the weight of the home is transferred from unstable soils, through the piers, to competent load-bearing soil or bedrock. Helical piers stabilize the foundation from further settlement and have the potential to lift it back toward its original position. Restore property value, quality of life and peace of mind right away.
