Foundation Repair for Debris Pits
Here is a link/video to a job Atlas Piers worked on in NW Atlanta, GA. The current homeowner bought the house after helical piers were installed to fix a foundation problem over a debris pit (buried wood debris under the foundation). The helical piers were installed but did not penetrate the debris. Atlas Piers of Atlanta installed 3 resistance piers (or push piers) a few years later on another area of the house. Since the original helical piers failed due to poor installation (the company has since gone out of business, but started another piering company), Atlas Piers is now repairing the area above the debris pit with resistance piers. We will be updating a longer post about trash and debris pits, but wanted to share the video.
