Stop the damaging effects of foundation settling...
Sinking foundations,cracked and buckled walls and uneven floors are problems commonly faced annually by some quarter-million homeowners. Homes and other structures situated on unstable soils settle when their foundations are subjected to extrem moisture variations or lack poper drainage. 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
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.
