A home in Toronto, Ontario had a problem in the basement along the back wall and corner of the home. If the foundation was settling and it would cause damage to the upper floors of the house and could become structurally unstable. The homeowner noticed a step cracking in the block foundation wall which was the result of the foundation settling. The foundation could become unstable which would damage the upper floor finishing and also could adversely affect the value of the home should they decided to sell.
The customer called Foundation Supportworks to come in and fix the problem. Ron Monk explained everything that would be done to fix the home. Shane O’Rourke and his team came in and used Push Pier Vertical Assembly. The Foundation Supportworks push pier assembly installation is complete with a heavy bracket connected at the bottom of the foundation. The pier pushes into the ground until the equipment measure that it has hit solid bedrock. At that time the weight of the home is transferred to the pier and off the failing soils. The customer was satisfied because of the stabilization to the house and damage prevention for the house
