Why is my Foundation Failing?

Oklahoma Foundation RepairMany foundations in Muskogee, OK and surrounding areas rest on dense, clay soil that is susceptible to erosion.

Clay soils also tend to be active, which means that it does a great deal of shrinking and swelling depending on moisture content. This fluctuation can cause foundation damage to your home, and the shrink portion of the shrink/swell cycle can cause your foundation to settle into the ground.

While there are other potential causes for foundation problems (including having a poorly constructed foundation), in most cases for slab or basement foundations it is a sign that the soil beneath your home isn't able to provide the necessary support to keep your foundation level.

Foundation Repair Solutions

The good news is that, in spite of many destructive elements, long-term stability for your home's foundation can still be achieved. Pierman Foundation Repair Services of Oklahoma has many years of experience in doing just that. In many situations, solid foundation support can be established by extending the support system of your foundation to a greater depth, to a stable layer of soil that is less likely to settle and shift. One method to accomplish this is referred to as "foundation underpinning", which is a very wise investment for the long-term stability of your home.

Underpinning Products

Pierman Foundation Repair Services uses underpinning products to lift and stabilize a foundation that has shifted and settled.

The piers are placed below the footing of the home and sunk down to either bedrock or a layer of soil stable enough to support the weight of the house. The house is then hydraulically lifted until level and the weight of the house is transferred onto the piers.

At Pierman, we stand behind the strength of the piers that we use, choosing only the best so that you get a foundation repair solution that solves your problem permanently the first time.

Pier and Beam Repairs

Pier and Beam foundations, because of how they are constructed, sometimes have different problems than slab or basement foundations

The first is that the piers, which are often made of bricks or cinder blocks, might have started to either weaken or sink into the ground. This means that the beams that rest on them won't be getting even support. This can cause many of the same issues as when the soil isn't properly supporting a slab foundation.

We can both replace the damaged or sunken pier and reinforce the soil at the pier's base to prevent future sinking. This will provide the beams with consistent support over their length to prevent them from becoming misaligned.

Sometimes the damage is caused by weakness in either the beams or the floor joists that rest on top of them. This is especially true if water has seeped into the crawl space, which can cause the wooden structural components to begin to rot.

In this case we can replace the affected beams and joists and, if water is the culprit, encapsulate your crawl space to prevent the beams from rotting again.
