Foundation Repair Photo Album: Separating Bricks in the Foundation in Hartford, KY
A homeowner located in Hartford, KY reached out to Healthy Spaces about foundation issues. She explained that there were cracks in the brick, doors were separating, and spacing between the floors and baseboard was present. Foundation issues are never pleasant, but with a free inspection from Healthy Spaces, the best solution can be found. To start, a big trench was formed alongside the home for the Helical Piers to fit into. The first pier section is crewed into the ground using specialized hydraulic equipment. Additional sections are then added to extend the pier to the appropriate depths and capabilities, and a steel foundation bracket is connected to the helical piers and attached to your foundation's footing. The weight of the home is then transferred through the helical piers onto the competent load-bearing soils deep below the surface. Once the Helical Piers system was completed, the homeowner inspected the work and was pleased to see such a great transformation!
