Commercial Foundation Repair

Foundation settling and shifting can be caused by a number of different reasons. These include building a structure on expanding or contracting soil, improperly compacted fill soils, or from poor or erroneous maintenance of the soil around the building. Whatever the cause of a settling foundation, this problem not only ruins a building's value, but it will also render it unsafe.

Foundation Piering

commercial foundation piering

Our Huntsville foundation piering fixes soil issues that the foundation of your home or commercial property rests on. Often a foundation has been built on soil that is too weak to support the structure, or on clay dirt, which has shrinkage and swelling properties that may lead to potential issues such as bowed walls, or foundation cracks.

During the process of piering a new foundation, we install SafeBasements™ piers, which are either screwed in (helical piers), or pushed through (push piers) the soft soil until it reaches a stronger ground. If you have a structure that is unstable or located in a windy area, helical piers are the answer for the Huntsville commercial foundation repair. Helical piers help support the weight of heavy commercial columns and wall loads. These work by being "screwed" into the ground, to the appropriate depths of hard bedrock or stable soil, then being bolted or molded into the foundation of the structure with concrete.

This will allow the weight of the structure to be transferred from unstable or weak soil to stable soil or bedrock. Helical piers can also be used to anchor buildings or structures to the ground.
