Underpinning is not the only service that Atlas Piers can supply, however. We also offer a variety of services in other areas, including: pressure grouting, helical tiebacks, carbon fiber repairs, and wall encapsulation. Pressure grouting is a void filling method that, like underpinning with resistance piers, can be used to lift and stabilize sinking or settling foundations. In this process, a grout is injected beneath the foundation to fill voids, lifting the structure and supporting the foundation. For basement wall repair, helical tiebacks and carbon fiber repairs are both excellent choices. Helical tiebacks are anchors that are installed in the ground adjacent to the wall to apply opposite horizontal pressure that will straighten any bowing or leaning. Carbon fiber strips are another method used to repair walls; these strips strengthen and stabilize the walls, locking them in place and closing cracks. If you happen to have a wet basement or crawlspace, Atlas Piers can help with that as well. Our encapsulation services involve installing a vapor barrier along the walls of a basement or crawlspace to seal out moisture, leaving your home dry and mold-free.
