To make your repairs, We must
re-support your foundation on
columns. We will install the columns
by hydraulically driving them
beneath the foundation. Our
columns, which are called pilings,
serve two purposes. First, the pilings
serve as platforms upon which we
set jacks to raise the settled portions
of the foundation. Second, the
pilings transfer the weight of the
building from the unstable surface
soils to deeper, more stable layers.
The process individually tests the
bearing capability of the soil and
piling at each location.
