Do you need help finding the right products to repair an old foundation? If so, check out the foundation repair systems available through Patriot Foundation Systems. These systems use helical pilings and underpinning brackets to anchor structures deep within the ground where the soil is more stable. Helical foundations have residential, commercial and industrial applications ranging from leveling old houses to stabilizing bridges and overpasses. Whatever the shape of your foundation may be, there’s a good chance that helical repair systems can help.
Bad things happen to houses as they’re foundations sink and shift. Floors can become uneven, cracks can split through walls and chimneys may start pulling away from outer walls. Cracks in shifting foundations also let in more moisture that can compound problems further. Helical foundation repair systems are cost-effective options for correcting these problems even in areas with unstable terrain and high water tables. The helical pilings reach down into bedrock or load-bearing strata to support the weight of your structure. In addition to bolstering failing foundations, these systems are also effective in reinforcing buckling walls – a common need in basements of older homes.
Consider these additional reasons to use helical underpinning and repair systems:
Helical foundation repair systems are also better for the environment. The helical pilings don’t displace much dirt when they’re screwed into the ground, resulting in less debris to haul from the job site. The installation process is less invasive than traditional foundation methods. Helical systems are even more advantageous in shoreline developments where foundations are often built underwater or in places with extremely soft soil.
