Foundation Issues Challenge
Shirley of Colorado Springs, CO, found Peak Structural online after noticing cracks in the exterior brick of her home as well as on the interior drywall, especially near doorways, windows and even along her ceiling near light fixtures.
Design Specialist, Kevin Boudrot, went out to assess the issue and proposed 11 push piers be installed and to attempt to lift the home back to it’s original position and stabilize it to prevent any future movement.
Foundation Repair Solutions
Peak Structural proposed for 11 Push Piers to be strategically installed. Push Piers feature a patent-pending external sleeve that strengthens the pier at the critical tension point below the bracket. Push piers are rugged and installed next to the footings and attached with a heavy-duty steel bracket. Soil is backfilled around the piers once stabilization and lifting is complete to finish the installation. This repair option provides a permanent solution to settlement issues. Push piers cause a minimal disruption during installation, are fast and effective to install and can reach a greater depth than other options.
In the case of Shirley’s home in Colorado Springs, the push piers made it possible for the installation crew to lift home successfully back into position, which even closed up her unsightly interior and exterior cracks! What a transformation! Shirley can now breathe easier that her home is structurally sound and backed with a lifetime transferable warranty from Peak Structural!
