Foundation Repair Solutions for Homes and Businesses in Durham NC
Some of these solutions use different types of piering products from ECP (Earth Contact Products) to lift and stabilize your sinking or settling foundation. The rest are focused on various foundation issues throughout other areas of the structure. The underpinning products that we use include: helical piers, slab piers, micropiles, steel push piers, and new construction piers. These piers all work in much the same way; they are driven into the ground beneath the foundation, and the structure’s weight is transferred onto them so that it can be lifted and stabilized. Another option for foundation support that Atlas Piers offer is pressure grouting. This is a method by which grout is injected beneath the foundation to fill voids and provide support and stabilization. When it comes to issues with the basement, we provide you with many effective solutions. If your foundation walls are leaning or bowing, choose our helical tieback installation. Helical tiebacks give the walls horizontal pressure opposite to the bowing or leaning, straightening and stabilizing the walls. Carbon fiber strips can also be used to repair leaning or cracked walls; they provide support and strength to lock the walls in place. If you have water issues in your basement, you may need to consider wall encapsulation, which is the installation of a vapor barrier to seal out moisture.
