Foundation Repair Case Studies: Helical Pier Installation in Buffalo, NY
This home had been condemned due to structural failure. The crawl space had been repeatedly shimmed up with cinder blocks and pieces of 4X4. It was no longer safe to live in and was to be torn down.
Thankfully the homeowner called Frank's before calling the bulldozer. Frank's was able to save the home through the use of helical piers in the crawl space and outside the home. The piers were installed deep into stable soil and then attached to the footer of the foundation. The weight of the house was transferred to the piers and the stable soil below the home. The house passed inspection and is no longer considered condemned or structurally unsound.
