Don't think that you need to be an expert to determine that you have a problem with your foundation.
Just look around to see if you find the following signs:
* Cracks in the interior walls
* "Popped" nails in the plaster of sheetrock
* Doors and windows that are hard to close
* Cracks in the brick fireplace wall
* Cracks in or between the exterior bricks
* Joints around the windows or doorframes pulling away from the caulking
* Leaks in the roof, despite roofing materials that is in good condition
* Obvious sloping of floors
These problems are more than unsightly cosmetic annoyances. Cracks in the interior walls reduce the value of your home. Cracks in exterior bricks allow moisture that can damage the sheeting, insulation and the interior walls. Spaces between walls and windows or doors that no longer fit well can result in higher heating and cooling costs. In addition, leaking roofs can result in damaged beams, insulation, interior wal ls, ceiling and electrical wiring.
How to find the right company:
Most homeowners can take their time in getting their foundations repaired since foundations problems usually are not emergencies. Because of this, there should be no need for you to be pushed into a hasty decision regarding which company you select to level your home, so the sooner the repairs are made, the better.
Why Use Something Different?
The answer is simple, because D-Square Driven Piling Work!.
Why Does It Work?
Many people you know have probably had expensive and unhappy experiences with conventional foundation repairs. In response to these problems,research began to develop a repair system that would:
1. Minimize dependence on an exact knowledge of soil
2. Balance the exact load to be applied to the pile
3. Allow more tolerance in installation procedures
How Does it Work?
The D-Square Driven Pilings System answers the problem inherent in the repair of the light loaded,shallow foundations installed under most type of construction.
a. The load is automatically compensated and is used positively to properly drive the length of pile necessary for its support.
b. The pile tests the soils as it is driven. Skin friction necessary to support the applied load determines the length of piling and will vary according to the character of the soil.
c. Alignment of the pile starts at the surface and continues throughout its driven length.
d. Initial settlement d ue to debris left in the bottom of a drilled hole is non-existent
e. The strength of the concrete used to form the pile is sections are verified during installation.
f. Since the pile sections are pre-cast,on site concrete pours are not required,minimizing problems of site cleanliness and destruction of valuable vegetation.
g. Pre-casting and curing eliminate lost time on the job and results in better control of concrete strength.
