Keep Your Foundation Supported With Helical Piles Alabama
One common method to repair foundation problems that are causing bowed or cracked walls is to use helical piles. A helical pile is much like a type of resistance pier, or push pier that support the structure from underneath. They are becoming more and more popular as they are generally more stable than ordinary push piers. This is because they are screwed into the ground instead of merely pushed into it. They work by attaching to a wall and shifting the weight from near the surface to a lower, more stable part of the ground, where it is much easier to support the weight of the structure. Atlas Piers can provide you with quality helical piles Alabama foundation repair options.
