What's worse: Unsafe, structural conditions or reduced property value of your home or business? Our services work to ensure to retain and improve the investment value and structural integrity of your property for years to come. One solution for foundation settlement is, "Under-pinning" or foundation piering. What is foundation piering?
Push Piers: Stabilize and lift an existing foundation that has settled or moved. The weight of the structure is used to advance sections of piling into the ground. This "under-pinning", Pier system is driven down to load bearing strata, bedrock, and is field tested for assurance and security that installation is correct. This Pier system is rated for heavier foundation/structure use.
Helical Piers: Stabilize and lift foundations that have settled or moved, but helical piers are screwed into the ground. Helical piers typically require less excavation than other types of piers and can be used in an area with limited access, and lighter foundation/structure applications.
Burnham Basement will analyze foundation load requirements, probable sub-soils, and give an accurate measurement of settlement amounts of the, current structural conditions, and a site condition analysis, of your home or building's construction, to select the correct foundation repair application needed.
