Foundation-Settlement can cause cracks to be seen on any wall.
Blue Tape To Mark Each Pier Location
We mark the areas of the foundation that will have push piers installed beneath it. This helps the crew see where the work is happening, and it helps Utility Companies determine if where we're digging is safe.
Push Pier Installation
This is the necessary mess of installing push piers, but, as you can see on the next photo, the cleanup will make it seem like nothing happened. Also note the wooden boards with "No Step" written on them. The holes that we dig to install our push piers are always covered because the dangers of a hole in the ground are plenty.
The End Result
After the push piers were installed, our crew backfilled the holes with the dirt they had dug out. After the holes were backfilled, they poured new concrete to replace the sections that were needed to be removed.
