Our home foundation repair crew will find the pipes and electric wires in and around your home. The plants will be moved carefully from the areas where piers are to be drilled. This is when the drilling the piers process can start. A small amount of dirt will be kept to do the back filling where necessary as the piers are drilled. Then all the extra dirt is hauled off and the concrete is poured in all piers.
The Raising Process
After the concrete goes through the curing process for roughly seven days, jacks are placed on the piers. All excess mortar and caulking are removed to permit the bricks to return to their original positions.
A six-inch diameter 5000-PSI concrete block is placed on the pier to support the foundation. Then the holes are backfilled and the mortar joints are repaired, windows caulked, and any concrete replaced. If there happens to be some damage to your sprinkler system we will repair it and your plants are replanted. All areas are then washed or swept.
The DFW area is notorious for poor soil conditions, that can lead to poor drainage. In some cases poor drainage can contribute to foundation movement. This can be corrected by re-grading the yard surface with a swale. In some cases trench drains are used to remove underground seepage, and surface drains are used to remove water.
Atlas Foundation does not have a structural engineer on staff. We feel this is a conflict of interest, and can provide engineering services through several independent engineers. Atlas offers two types of piers to meet most engineers’ specifications
A licensed plumber performs all plumbing tests, which are conducted on the water and sewer lines under the foundation. The water supply is pressure tested and hydrostatic tests are conducted on the sewer lines. A cleanout must be located and one toilet removed for this test.
