Before view of the foundation upon excavating down to expose the footings. The bottom of the foundation is broken and failing. Push Piers would be installed along with some steel beam supports to restabilize the foundation.
View of the exposed foundation. It is cracked and settling, in need of stabilization and frost protection.
View of the Push Piers installed around one of the corners of the home. Once the Push Piers were installed and the foundation permanently stabilized, the polymer foam frost protection system was added.
View of the completed project before the excavated site was backfilled to conceal the foundation. In this picture, Push Piers and a polymer foam frost protection system.
This home, built in 1927 was facing settlement issues. The foundation was a crawlspace, which had poured concrete walls and a semi-finished surface on the interior. There was a large crack in the foundation wall, visible on the inside. The footings of the foundation were old and deteriorating. Erickson Foundation Supportworks proposed using Push Piers to stabilize the foundation and lift it back up a couple inches to return to a level position. A frost wall protection was also added to the foundation, helping to protect it against freezing and water damage.
