While foundation settling is common and not always a big problem, sometimes it can pose more serious structural concerns. When this happens, helical piers are an excellent solution to re-stablilize the home. Helical pier systems are a cost-effective, long-term, and fast solution to a shifting foundation.
What is a Helical Pier System?
At Foundation Pro Services, we use Hubbell’s Chance Helical Foundation Systems on the homes we repair. Helical piers are large steel shafts driven deep into the ground under the home using hydraulics to stabilize the structure and stop shifting. They are installed quickly and easily with minimal equipment, and will reinforce your foundation to increase load capacity.
