Case Study - Push Piers for Eagle Ranch Subdivision
Push Piers (Residential)
- Project: Eagle Ranch Subdivision 2 homes
- Location: Eagle, Colorado
- Date: November, 2009
The evaluation revealed a lack of roof gutters and the existence of drainage issues. Both homes had settled more than 2 inches on their southwest corners. Creating cracks in walls, ceilings, and doors that could not be operated.
Foundation Repair of Western Colorado installed Supportworks Push Piers to lift and stabilize the foundation and prevent further vertical settlement. In a few cases, piers reached a depth as great as 61 feet with a lift capability of over 50 Kips.
Installation of Push Piers has lifted the house to a more level condition, and stopped ongoing and distractive movement! Most of the drywall cracks closed, and doors became operational. Roof eaves of the home and the porch came into a parallel plane with one another, eliminating a "curious" view from the curb.
"The foundation specialist was very helpful alleviating our concerns and a valuable source of information. From the beginning he made himself available to discuss our concerns and was always willing to take the time to communicate with us." - John P.
