The Process of Residential Foundation Shoring and Leveling
Step 1: Work Site Preparation
After relocating plants from the work area, we create access holes by hand. For the safety of you, your family, and guests, we place heavy plywood covers over each hole as we complete this phase of the job. Unless the job calls for interior pilings, we do not need to access to the inside of your home.
Step 2: Driving the Pilings
During the next phase of the home foundation leveling process, we require access to the inside of your home to use electrical outlets. After we are plugged in and ready to go, the cable-anchors or spiral lock starter segments are pressed into the ground at the designated location. Piling segments or cable lock spiral cylinders that have cables through the centers are driven to the required depth and resistance.
We then position a pile head on top of the last segment, and the cable is locked into place. Our team places concrete blocks on top of the piling cap directly under the bottom of the foundation.
Step 3: Final Stage of Home Foundation Leveling
Finally, we slowly raise the slab, which stabilizes the home. One of our experienced Cable Lock technicians directs the stabilization while trained personnel carefully monitor the reactions of the structure. Once finished, we insert steel spacers on concrete blocks to support your home.
We then fill the top portions of the holes with soil, and we replace any surface concrete breakthroughs. Finally, to complete the residential foundation leveling and shoring project, we replace plants and clean all work areas, walkways, and driveways.
