The home experienced multiple stair-step cracks due to foundation settlement. When the structure of a home is compromised, filling in the cracks and repointing is only a temporary cosmetic fix, not a long-term solution.
Foundation settlement problems are surprisingly common. One sign in this home was interior ceiling cracks in the drywall.
Our foundation repair crew exposed the foundation footing. They had to remove a portion of concrete for 3 piers in front of the settling garage. We hand-poured new concrete after we completed the project.
Our crew secured 8 Push Pier brackets to the footing. Then, they hydraulically drove steel tubes through the loose soil until we reached load-bearing strata; stable ground.
We installed exterior drainage pipe as the work area was backfilled with clean gravel and the excavated dirt.
Baker's Waterproofing immediately and permanently restored this home's structural integrity and the homeowner's peace of mind.
A homeowner from Sarver, PA noticed that his foundation was settling. First, he tried filling in the cracks with mortar, but after a couple years he realized that the mortar did not solve the true cause of the problem. That was when he called Baker's Waterproofing to find the right fix.
Our tenured certified expert, Chris, inspected the inside and outside of this homeowner's cracked foundation. Chris measured a 3-inch settlement and identified cracks in the exterior brick and interior drywall.
At the time of the inspection, the homeowner was not financially ready to start this major project. A couple years later, we reviewed the project proposal and he moved forward with the repairs.
Baker's Waterproofing successfully put this Sarver home back on solid ground with our patented Push Pier system.
