Foundation Settlement Repair
Seal-Tite Basement Waterproofing Co has performed foundation settlement repair using helical piers for many years to help homeowners in Virginia over to West Virginia and down the the Tri-City, Tennessee area with shifting and settling foundation problems.
The significant principle in our pier solution is to mechanically shift your building load to stable soils or bedrock far beneath it. Utilizing anchors does away with expensive coring and concrete pier work to brace and maintain your new home construction. Grip-Tite® Helical Piers are mechanically screwed into the earth to preset depths where those deep, stable soils are located.
Benefits Of Piering
- Installed in a few days or less.
- Piers can be installed year-round.
- Can be installed in areas with limited access.
- All support systems out of sight once installation is finished.
In a few situations, Grip-Tite® Helical Piers can be the best alternative to effectively brace a distressed existing foundation.
When it has to do with remedying a settling foundation, or heading off expensive structural repairs before construction starts, don't settle for less than the best. Insist upon proved foundation repair products, engineering and our extensive experience - and begin with a firm foundation by applying new construction piers.
Push Pier System
Seal-Tite's push pier system uses the same principles as industrial construction to stabilize your foundation and keep it permanently structurally sound.
First we attach to your home's footing a number of Grip-Tite® Push Pier brackets of thick, industrial-strength steel. Then high-pressure equipment hydraulically torques rugged steel piers down to suitable load-bearing levels or bedrock. Keep in mind that this support is done underground, so nothing is exposed. Also each pier is singly anchored and examined for successful load-bearing.
Finally the weight of your home is carefully transferred from the original unfit soil to rock-solid piers so your home or commercial building is protected with the pier system permanently in place and hidden from sight.
