Did you know that brick and stone can add to the thermal mass of your building or home? There are so many advantages to having this feature in your residential or commercial building. You don’t have to worry about painting masonry features, it is non-combustible, they can be a protective feature in strong storms, and the building generally lasts longer than a building with other materials. Many homeowners are reluctant to add masonry to their home because of possible repairs in the future. However, Atlas Piers of Atlanta is available to take care of any residential masonry repairs needed in your Georgia home.
Pressure Grouting for Masonry Repair from Atlas Piers
Pressure grouting is used in many cases where masonry is cracked or sinking. Gaps can easily form under the cement when dry or poorly compacted soil sinks. As these gaps form, the cement is usually not strong enough to hold itself up over the open space. This is what causes the cracks and heaves. Pressure grouting is a process designed to fill these gaps. Small holes are drilled into your concrete or masonry, and a high concentration of liquid concrete is injected into these holes. This concrete fills the gaps and provides a nice barrier between the sinking soil and the newly stabilized masonry. Pressure grouting is designed to last your home a long time and keep your masonry stable despite any shifts that may occur in the soil.
Helical Piers: Masonry Repair Solution for Your Atlanta Home
Helical piers, and many other solutions designed to help fill holes, even out your foundation, and keep your garage columns from sinking further. Helical piers can support failing masonry such as leaning chimneys. A leaning chimney can cause big problems for your home and can be easily supported by helical piers. These helical piers are inserted at the base of the chimney or beneath your home’s foundation walls. They transfer the weight of the chimney from the loose, sinking soil below it to the better compacted soil further down. These piers can be installed in any weather and are very durable. Atlas Piers uses ECP-brand steel piers.
