Every building, home or not, must be built on a foundation to last. This means that your garage can have foundation problems just like your home, so it’s important to check it for signs of damage regularly.

What Causes Foundation Problems in Your Garage?

Foundation issues are usually caused by too much water or not enough water. Excessive water causes soil erosion and expansion, washing away soil beneath the foundation. Hot, dry conditions create voids, causing the soil to shrink and shift over time. Either way, it’s important to get a professional’s opinion on the subject. If it’s recently been very dry or very wet, you probably need to have a proper inspection of your garage and home foundations. You can trust our team to handle it all.

What Are Some Solutions for Garage Foundation Issues?

Helical pier installation in soilWe offer a variety of foundation repair techniques to restore the stability of your garage. Our products include steel piers and helical piers. These piers are the most common foundation repair products used in these kinds of situations. 

Push piers are steel tubes that are hydraulically driven down into the soil until they reach stable soil. They are designed to handle the maximum capacity weight, such as homes and garages. With helical piers, the steel tubes use helical plates to pull the pier into the soil, then turned until they reach the proper depth. Steel brackets are attached at the end of the installment. Helical piers are ideal for lighter structures such as stoops and stairs.

Both piers can be installed year-round from either inside or outside of the home. They are designed to permanently fix your foundation problems and restore your property’s value. They lift the foundation back to its original position with little disturbance to the property and will last for years to come.
