A shifting foundation may result in structural damage to your home and a loss of your investment.


Indications of foundation settling problems include:

  • Foundation walls that are buckled or bowed
  • Doors and windows that stick or don't open properly
  • Cracks in foundation walls
  • Cracks in exterior walls
  • Cracks in interior walls and ceilings
  • Sunken or buckled interior concrete floors

Structural Engineer Installing Helical Pile To Secure Foundation
The CHANCE Helical Foundation System offers a technically superior and cost-effective alternative to other remedial systems. Our system is backed by more than 80 years of structural engineering experience.

The concept is founded on the principle of turning a helical (screw) pile into stable subsoil strata until the torque applied indicates that the necessary load capacity has been achieved. Adjustable brackets are then attached to the base of your foundation walls, connecting the piles to the foundation. The weight of your home is then tranferred to the piles. In the process, the foundation, walls and floors are repositioned and retained from further movement.

This innovative system contrasts with other more costly and time-consuming methods which require extensive excavation that can disturb site features such as walkways and landscaping. Th load-bearing steel shafts are screwed into the ground independent of the structure and their bearing or holding capacity is verified via torgue correlation as the system is installed.
