When the soil beneath your home consolidates, is compressed or washes away, the structure above often settles resulting in cracks within the foundation and interior drywall. This is often seen in “stairstep” cracks in exterior brick walls or block foundations. While these cracks are obvious signs of a sinking or settling foundation, because your entire house rests upon its foundation, when the foundation isn’t working properly, problems can appear all over the house, including sticking windows and doors, uneven floors and chimney cracks.
Fortunately, even though foundation settlement problems are serious and only get worse with time, they can typically be stabilized and fixed permanently through the use of specialized equipment and solutions such as push piers and helical piers.
However, not all piering systems are designed and built alike. Some older methods, such as the use of concrete piers, can be ineffective and cause their own problems. This is why Dritek Foundation Solutions uses steel push piers and helical piers that are designed by Supportworks engineers and manufactured to exceptionally high standards. These solutions ensure that each job is completed to the satisfaction of the homeowner, providing peace of mind for decades to come. In addition, our crews are trained by Supportworks experts, so you can rest assured that your foundation repair solution will be installed properly the first time.
Dritek Foundation Solutions design techs are trained to expertly diagnose foundation problems. They use highly specialized equipment that allows them to develop a solution tailored to your home’s unique needs. By the time the inspection is over, you’ll know exactly what caused the problem, exactly what it will take to fix it permanently and exactly how much it will cost to do so.
Once a solution has been customized for your home, we pick a date for the job. At that time, a highly trained crew of technicians will install the solution, leaving your home fixed and protected for future generations — restoring its value, improving your family’s quality of life and giving you lasting peace of mind.
When you see that your foundation is failing, you may be tempted to consider replacing it, and there are companies that specialize in total foundation replacement. But, before you go that route, consider this: total foundation replacement is not only extremely disruptive and expensive, but it also only addresses a symptom and not the underlying issue. That’s because the new foundation will be built upon the same unstable soil that caused the issues in the first place. Only a system that is advanced through these unstable layers to load-bearing soil or bedrock can effectively stabilize your home’s foundation.
Put simply: because we can permanently repair your foundation problems on time and on budget. Don’t Settle!
