Cracks and separations on your home are typically indicative of foundation damage. There’s no harm in getting it checked by a professional, no matter how small and insignificant you think it is.
Once one appears and it turns out you do have a foundation problem, those small cracks may develop into a more significant crevice.
In our client’s home in Plano, the owners noticed some cracks and gaps. Though few, they became concerned with the separations and their length.
They called us for inspection and found out the front of the house had lower elevations than the rest of it. We deduced they had foundation problems around this part and may need repair for it, better soon than later.
The homeowner intends to keep this home for a long time and has plans for it far into the future, so they chose the best repair option for longevity…
Installing Steel Piers in a Plano Home
Our PT3 system is arguably our best foundation repair solution. It involves penetrating steel-pressed piling piers down into the clay underneath your house. These piers are stronger than concrete and can be driven down deeper into the clay for better stability.
We performed this around the front of this house in Plano, where it needed it the most. As we’ve done this countless times and since the homeowner didn’t need a lot of piers, we were able to complete the project in just a day.
Our steel piers are a bigger investment than our repair offers, but it’s worth it for the long-term foundation support it gives. When cracks are detected early and are not too detrimental yet, it’s also easier and quicker to provide these repairs and prevent more significant damage and more expensive repairs.
