Foundation Repair Case Studies: Frost Heave in Aurora

Monday, June 1st, 2015 by Chris Luke

Challenge

Customer had bought a home and there were some small minor cracks prior but nothing compared to what they were now seeing.This past winter being so cold and the fact that a buried downspout froze made the homeowners realize they had a problem. The once small cracks were now opening up turning into large step cracks that went all the way up the wall through the brickwork and the floors above the garage were becoming out of level.

Solution

Excavate to expose garage foundation wall and footings and install Frost Protection based on an Engineered solution and Push Piers to a depth of 31 Feet to competant soil to stabilize the foundation.
