Symptoms of The Problem
Here you can see a concrete footing that isn't even supporting the wooden beam above it on the right. On the left, you see a wooden post that has been shimmed to adapt to the shifting soils.
This pier is in the process of being pressed into the Earth to give the foundation of the home a better footing to sit on.
These two piers have reached their proper depth. The home has been lifted and stabilized and now the piers can be covered and the homeowner can open his door properly.
Prepping For Work
The front door of this home was a huge complaint of the homeowner because he struggled to open it. A handful of piers will be installed here to bring the foundation back to its youthful standing.
