A home in Orillia, Ontario had a settlement issue affecting the rear wall. A typical problem for the area, poor soil caused the rear wall to settle and pull away from the rest of the home. Wanting the job done properly, the customer took a “level-headed” approach and called Clarke Basement Systems.
With poor soil as the major issue, we needed to go deep to ensure the home stayed level. Our push pier system uses hydraulics to drive deep into the earth, either to solid soil or bedrock down below. Each push pier is bracketed to the rear wall and they work together to keep the home level. Push piers even come with a 25-year transferrable warranty, letting the customer breathe a sigh of relief.
The customer is extremely happy that their home is stable once again, and they can continue to work on the interior, without having to worry about the exterior.
