Foundation Repair Case Studies: Crack in drywall

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014 by Anthony Zhao

Challenge

In this photo, we have a crack in the dry wall. Cracks in the drywall throughout the house are a good indicator of  settlement, and it may be more obvious in the upper levels of your house. Cracks can be a very serious issue, and if they are not taken care of, they can cause negative effects such as:

- Leaks

- Leads to more cracks

- Trouble selling house, due to the house not being structurally sound

Solution

In order to fix this problem, our team will stabilize the foundation by using helical piers or push piers. The Push Pier System uses steel tubes that utilize the weight of the structure to hydraulically drive the piers to bedrock.
