The climate you have in Sandy Springs, GA is hot humid summers and cold winters.

Foundation Repair Solutions for Sandy Springs Georgia
Atlas Piers can fix all your foundation problems. We install and specialize in underpinning, helical piers, resistance piers, and shoring to name a few.

Our underpinning services can be used to effectively lift and stabilize a sinking foundation. First, the piers are driven into the ground until it reaches the stable soil located far below the shifting top soils. Next, the weight of the structure is transferred onto the piers and they are used to lift the foundation to its original position, stabilizing it at the same time. To encompass every type of foundation repair situation, we offer a variety of piers: steel push piers, helical piers, slab piers, and porch piers.
Other foundation repair solutions that we offer include: pressure grouting, helical tiebacks, and carbon fiber repairs. Pressure grouting is a grout injection method that is used to fill voids that may have developed under your foundation. In this simple process, a grout is injected under the foundation, filling voids to lift and stabilize the foundation. Helical tiebacks are often used to repair bowing or leaning walls. These devices are anchored into the ground next to the wall and attached to the wall. They apply horizontal pressure opposite to the direction of the lean to straighten the wall. Carbon fiber strips are another method that can be used to fix leaning or cracking foundation walls. These strips provide the wall with strength and stability, locking it in place and closing any cracks that may have formed.
We offer a host of other foundation and new construction options for you too. A good foundation from the start is so important to the overall well being of your home. We can build your foundation and help with our shoring processes to make sure your foundation is perfect from the get go.
