We offer shoring services to our clients that are in need of extra support in their homes. Shoring is needed when a new building needs extra support. Sometimes, during construction, the walls being built need extra support to prevent leaning or falling. When we use our shoring process, the construction project can proceed without harming the integrity of the structure. Helical tiebacks and plates are installed into your home’s leaning or bowing wall, or even into a retaining wall. These are steel plates that are put onto the surface of the wall with a steel rod running diagonally through the wall and into the soil. This will stabilize the wall and lift it into its original position.
Another service we offer is underpinning. This can strengthen, stabilize, and lift the foundation of most existing buildings or structures. Sometimes, when you have an emergency foundation repair, all it will take is an installation of helical piers or resistance piers to add support and stability in a pinch. These are commonly used underpinning products, and we utilize the best products in the industry from Earth Contact Products. Helical and resistance piers are very useful in underpinning because they can be installed in various weather situations, and the installation is usually quick, easy, and extremely effective. We can be there any time you need in an emergency and we will make it out priority to get things to a safe point fast.
Foundation problems in Georgia should not be ignored, especially when they are a danger to your home. They can dramatically decrease the value of your home and threaten the safety of your family.
