The resident of this Pittsburgh, PA home had a foundation that was sinking causing structural problems.
Excavation around the entire perimeter of the house was done to give access to the footer to secure the brackets.
This is a close up of one the secured brackets attached to the footer.
One of our hard working crew members is using the tool to drive the Push Piers deep into the ground to more load bearing soil.
This is the side view of the Push Piers installed. Once everything is in place the soil was back filled.
A multi-level house located in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania was experiencing foundation settlement. In other words along the right, left and front side of the foundation seemed to be sinking into the ground. Foundation settlement is usually caused by expanding and contracting soil located in the ground. Homeowner Ed noticed this problem and called Baker’s for a stabilization method to repairing his sinking foundation.
Certified inspector Tom Eckersley had the entire perimeter of the house excavated, this included under a back patio and deck to give access to the home’s footer. He then placed, along the left, right, and front exterior walls, brackets so to hydraulically drive 25 evenly spaced Push Piers deep into the soil. By driving these steel piers into more load bearing soil transfers the weight of the home onto the piers, stabilizing the home in place.
