A homeowner called to see what could be done about a chimney that is moving away from the house.
The soil is removed to expose the foundation footer to attach the pier.
The steel piers are mechanically drilled into the ground until it reaches competent soil.
A bracket is attached to the footer and the pier.
An attempt will be made to raise the house to the original position, lift is not guaranteed. See a Certified Inspector for more details.
This chimney was moving away from the house in the summer when it gets dry and would move back into place in the winter. The homeowner was also experiencing cracks in the drywall. We installed a Helical Pier System to resolve this problem for the homeowner.
