    Your Guide to Steel Concrete Pressed Pilings

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Expansive soil movement—the chief cause for slab foundation issues—occurs most often around the edges of the home. A typical foundation repair method is to install pressed pilings underneath the foundation to permanently stabilize parts of the home that are susceptible to expansive soil movement. Learn more about the slab foundation repair process and the difference in steel pressed pilings below:

    Installation Process
    The installation process for steel pressed pilings is virtually identical to that of concrete pressed pilings. Our specialists will excavate targeted holes around the exterior of the home and lift the home slightly with a 40-ton hydraulic ram. The pilings are then installed and the weight of the home is used to push them into the ground until they reach a “refusal point,” or the point at which it takes more force to push the piling deeper than to support the home. The turnaround time for a typical foundation repair job is approximately 1 to 2 days.

    Steel vs. Concrete
    The refusal point for sandy or soft soils is much deeper than it is for harder minerals, but soil is rarely uniform in composition. That is, it isn’t uncommon to find thin layers of harder soil underneath the home, which can create a false refusal point. Pressed concrete pilings are “softer” than steel, and are thus more susceptible to settle on these false refusal points. Steel pressed pilings can punch through these layers and provide a more reliable solution.

    A Look at Installing French Drains

    Last updated 3 months ago

    A French drain is one of the most effective options for channeling water away from the foundation and prevent long-term structural problems. This video provides a brief description of how French drains work.

    French drains are underground drainage lines that route water away from the home and into a safe location. Improperly installing a French drain could damage underground utility lines or cause soil to clog the line.

    Answers to Some of the Most Frequently Asked Foundation Questions

    Last updated 3 months ago

    For most homeowners, the foundation is just the ground beneath their feet. However, it also provides support to all of the walls and ceiling, and any problems could make everything crumble like a house of cards. Understandably, homeowners have plenty of questions when it comes to spotting major damage and planning for the costs of foundation repair. To that end, we here at Structured Foundation Repairs have compiled this FAQ to answer some of the most common questions:

    How Do I Spot Major Damage?
    Signs of foundation damage can be as minor as a jammed door or window, or as obvious as large cracks in the ground or walls. Inadequate drainage or water leaks are among some of the most common causes for foundation damage. Evaluations from Structured Foundation Repairs are always free, so don’t hesitate to set up an appointment if you suspect your foundation may be in trouble.

    How Much Will It Cost?
    The cost of a foundation repair project depends on the scope and severity of the damage. Most of our jobs can be completed within 1 to 2 days and historically cost from $5,000 to $7,000. The cost of foundation repair is often less than what homeowners expect, especially compared to the tens of thousands of dollars it would take to rebuild an entirely new foundation.

    Will It Affect the Value of My Home?
    Foundation repairs from a licensed and certified specialist in accordance with industry standards will have to be disclosed when you are ready to sell the home. However, we do offer a lifetime transferable warranty to ensure that you receive the best value for your home.
