Commercial FOUNDATION repair
Foundation Repair and Underpinning provides supplementary support to existing foundations that are not able to safely support their existing or future planned loads. 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 solution.
For multiple reasons, foundations can suffer damage from settlement. Compressible underlying soils, subterranean water migration, presence of organics, or lateral movements from adjacent excavations could all be contributing factors. As foundation specialists, we have the experience and full range of specialty products and techniques to provide effective foundation solutions, regardless of the culprit.
A foundation could be underlain by poorly compacted soils or organic debris that consolidate and decompose over time. Permanent stabilization of the underlying soil will provide permanent foundation support.
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. Underpinning is often used to raise a structure back to its original elevation. Underpinning is designed so that the completed solution is below grade and does not effect the aesthetics of the structure.
