With the kitchen directly above the back foundation wall, which was settling, the cabinets were crooked and the floor uneven.
There were signs of settlement action, easy to see in this large foundation wall crack.
There were several foundation wall cracks visible on both the inside and outside.
Other signs of settlement within the main house were found in the crack drywall and ceilings.
The crews were able to dig their shallow trench beneath the deck without having to remove the structure. The footing of the foundation is now exposed and the crews can work on installing individual piers.

Wrapping up the project and completing the back-fill.
These homeowners in Billerica, MA reached out to us in the fall of 2019 to help diagnose and find a solution for their settling home. It was gradually sinking in the back, and needed a permanent solution before the problem got worse. In total, we installed 12 Push Piers, as well as PolyLevel beneath the slab in a large section of the basement.
All the piers were pushed to depths of at least 19', some as deep as 28'.
