Commercial Foundation Repair
For our business clients, we offer commercial foundation repair. Whether you have a factory, a brick-and-mortar store, or any other type of building, you need a foundation to support it, and when your foundation has issues, we can help. Here’s a look at some of our services.
Commercial Foundation Repair and Underpinning Services for Extra Support
Our commercial foundation repair and underpinning services provide supplementary support to existing foundations that are not able to safely support their existing or future planned loads. For example, if you need to add an additional story to your building, these services can help prepare your building for the extra weight. Similarly, if your current foundation has shifted or destabilized so that it isn’t supporting your current structure, you may also want to consider repair or underpinning.
Commercial Foundation Damage for Settlement Issues
For multiple reasons, foundations can suffer damage from settlement. Compressible underlying soils, subterranean water migration, the presence of certain organic materials, or lateral movements from adjacent excavations can all be contributing factors that cause a building to settle and that leads to commercial foundation damage.
As foundation specialists, we have the experience to identify the issue, and then, we create a repair plan to address that particular issue. Our full range of specialty products, techniques, and experienced crew provide effective foundation solutions, regardless of the culprit.
For example, if a foundation is underlain by poorly compacted soils or organic debris that consolidate and decompose over time, we can permanently stabilize the underlying soil to provide permanent foundation support. To take another example, if the underlying culprit is subterranean water migration, we can place a barrier under the foundation or explore other techniques to keep the underground water away from your foundation.
Commercial Foundation Underpinning for Compromised Foundations
Foundation underpinning is the optimal solution for re-securing a compromised foundation. Foundation underpinning is a method used to penetrate beyond the problem soils with structural mechanical elements that transfer the buildings load to a more competent load bearing strata. If your building has sunk slightly into the ground, underpinning is often used to raise the structure back to its original elevation. Underpinning is designed so that the completed solution is below grade and does not affect the aesthetics of the structure.
Our Process for Commercial Foundation Repair
Atlas Piers has the experience and specialty equipment designed for low headroom and tight access areas, where we can provide the fastest and least disruptive solutions to your foundation issues. In many cases, clients can continue using their building for business purposes as we complete the work below the building. We can let you know if that’s a possibility when we do the initial consultation and estimate.
