A homeowner in Miamisburg, Ohio, called The Basement Doctor regarding concerns regarding the settling of the foundation at the back corner of the house. We installed the Helical Pier System to resolve this problem for the homeowner. A Helical Pier is mechanically screwed into the ground until it reaches stable soil. A bracket is attached to the pier and the foundation footer. This transfers the weight of the house from the unstable soil down into the pier. This immediately stabilizes that part of the foundation. An attempt may be made to lift the house to repair the settling. To learn more about how Helical Pier System works, schedule an appointment with a Certified Inspector.
