Foundation Repair Using Concrete Pilings
The Foundation Repair Process for Concrete Pilings
At each piling location, we will hand dig a hole that is approximately two feet square. Any plants, which may be in the way, are relocated.
After plants are relocated and hand dug holes are completed, we will begin to install the pilings. Each pile section is hydraulically driven beneath the foundation, adding as many sections as necessary, to reach bedrock or refusal. When necessary, a High-Pressure Water Jet System is used to loosen soils so each piling can reach its’ maximum depth, 1/2 inch
rebar is then inserted through the pilings to ensure proper alignment.
After all pilings are installed, the leveling process begins. Excess and/or added mortar and caulking will be removed in order to allow the brick to return to their original positions. Elevations will be taken before, during, and after the leveling process.
When all leveling is completed, the holes are then backfilled, mortar joints repaired, the windows and doors caulked, concrete replaced, and plants are replanted. All areas are then washed or swept.
Unless interior pilings are installed, we will only need access inside your home during the leveling process. We will need access to your water, electricity, and breaker box at all times during the repair process.
