Foundation Repair Slab Piers
Slab Piers and Slab Settlement Repair
TerraFirma Foundation Systems Slab Piers are used for homes that are built on a concrete slab foundation. Slab piers are installed deep under your home to help stabilize your foundation. Our Slab Piers are a life-long foundation solution that involves minimal mess and stress.
Why Use Slab Piers?
Slab piers are designed to be driven deep into the earth, bypassing soils that are ill-suited to support weight, so that your floor can be supported by strong, competent earth. Slab piers also provide an opportunity to lift your concrete slab back to its original position, often closing cracks and eliminating tripping hazards.
Fix your cracked concrete Foundation with slab piers
A settling concrete slab can cause major structural problems in a home. An individual may notice signs such as trip hazards, cracks in drywall, and doors that do not open and close properly, all of which indicate a slab settlement problem.
Slab settlement problems are typically caused by changing soil conditions under the slab. Drying and shrinking of soils due to HVAC systems is one of the most common causes, along with soil consolidation due to poorly compacted fill soils during construction.
No matter what the cause, a sinking slab can cause significant damage and is something that needs to be permanently repaired. Some homeowners think that removing and replacing the slab is the solution to fix the problem, without realizing how costly, messy and disruptive it is to your home. Because the real problem is with the compaction of the soil rather than with the slab itself, the same problem is likely to occur again.
Other solutions such as mudjacking, only add weight to the problem and are unable to reach deep, competent soils in order to support the slab permanently.
