Cracks in your mortar or sheetrock should be repaired as soon as possible to avoid further settlement issues. Our professionals at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services offer the perfect foundation repair solution. We use different underpinning methods such as steel piers and helical piers. Steel piers are installed beneath the foundation to help support and strengthen the foundation. The piers are driven deep into the soil until they reach desired soil. The weight is transferred to the piers and the foundation is restored back to its original position to ensure complete stabilization.
Helical piers, similar to steel piers, are designed to screw into the soil to provide total stability to the foundation. They can be installed in all types of weather for lighter weight jobs.
