Mike R.
Orange, CA
May 30, 2017
Dalinghaus Construction sent out one of our knowledgable Project Consultants to perform an inspection and create a repair plan for the homeowner, Mike. Upon inspection, our Project Consultant found that the entire house had been previously underpinned with the exception of the front column that had settled approximately two inches. After explaining our recommended method of repair, Mike was ready to move forward with the project in order to both lift and stabilize the column preventing further settlement and sagging of the roof. Our production crew installed a push pier bracket onto the footing of the column, and hydraulically drove steel piers down to load bearing stratum. The crew then lifted the bracket against the steel pier to recover the gap formed during settlement between the roof and column. Once the column was lifted, the crew injected polyurethane to not only fill the voids caused by lifting the column but to also help stabilize the soil in the area where the settlement had occurred. After the crew cleaned up the area, Mike was happy to see that the roof was no longer sagging and our crew had recovered the gap between the column and roof. Make sure to take a look at the review Mike wrote on Yelp after the job was completed.
Nestor Zarazua
Lake Forest, CA
May 15, 2017
After calling Dalinghaus Construction, an appointment was scheduled for an inspection. During the inspection, our knowledgable Project Specialist recommended injecting polyurethane under the slab to fill the void between the soil and concrete, stabilize the soils below the concrete, and attempt to lift the concrete back to level. Once the project was approved, the job was scheduled for the polyurethane crew to be at Mr. Zarazua's property for one day. Injection holes were drilled, and the crew quickly got to work with injecting the polyurethane at a rate necessary to complete what was recommended by our Project Specialist. The concrete patio was lifted to maximum practical recovery, and Mr. Zarazua was very happy with the results. The area was no longer a trip hazard, and the stabilized soil would help to prevent further settlement in the area.
Alex Moran
San Diego, CA
May 12, 2017
During the inspection our Project Specialist took linear measurements of the property along with elevation measurements using a Zipline altimeter. After finding a zero point in the northeast bedroom to be used as a reference, the Project Specialist measured a drop in elevation of over 1.5 inches along the eastern wall of the home. After recording the measurements the Project Specialist dove into the crawl space to find that not only were two of the wooden posts and pads in need of replacement, but the home was not bolted to the foundation. Towards the end of the inspection our Project Specialist created a repair plan and proposal for Alex. The repair plan consisted of installing six push piers along the eastern wall of the home, replacing two posts and pads within the crawl space, and installing UFP plates along the perimeter of the crawl space. In recommending this repair plan, Dalinghaus Construction would attempt to lift the eastern wall of the home back up to its original location along with retrofitting the home seismically. When Alex was ready to move forward with the project, one of our production crews spent four days at the property to prep, install, and clean up the push piers and crawl space repairs. Our team was able to recover almost all of the 1.5 inches of settlement and stabilize the foundation from any further settling.
Heidi Burns
Laguna Niguel, CA
May 8, 2017
Upon calling Dalinghaus, an appointment was scheduled for one of our knowledgable Project Specialists, Phil, to perform an inspection on Mrs. Burns' property. After evaluating the damage, and inspecting the crawl space area, our Project Specialist recommended using polyurethane injections in order to create a water proof barrier between the outside soils and the foundation wall. The polyurethane injections will also fill any voids under the surface and help to stabilize the soils in that area. Once Mrs. Burns was ready to move forward the project was scheduled, and our Polyurethane crew was onsite for a couple of hours. Our crew injected the polyurethane at a two foot depth and at a rate necessary to create a water proof curtain along the foundation wall. While injecting the polyurethane our crew used a zipline altimeter, which is accurate to 1/10th of an inch, to measure any elevation changes in order to prevent lifting of the surface above the injection locations. After completing the injections, the polyurethane crew cleaned up the work area and Mrs. Burns was ecstatic about the outcome. The area of damage was protected from any future water issues, and now Mrs. Burns will not have to think about the issue ever again.
Karen Turner
Monrovia, CA
May 4, 2017
Our knowledgeable Project Specialist, Chris, performed an inspection on Ms. Turner's property and found no measurable differential in the floor's elevation. With no signs of foundational settlement, the cracks were caused by either a bad concrete pour or a lack of rebar support. Ms. Turner only wanted to address repairing the cracks so that she could get her new floors installed. Our Project Specialist proposed repairing the cracks with Carbon Fiber Staples, in which perpendicular saw cuts would be installed every 18 inches along the crack. After the staples are installed into the perpendicular cuts a two-part epoxy would be injected to cover the staple and fill the crack. Once Ms. Turner was ready to move forward, the production crew performed the repairs on all seven cracks and she was extremely pleased with the results. The crack repairs did not put a delay on her remodeling project and she was able to keep her wood floor installation as scheduled.
Vivian Cabellos
Los Angeles, CA
May 3, 2017
Upon Vivian's call to Dalinghaus Construction, a Project Specialist was scheduled to perform a free inspection on her property. During the inspection our Project Specialist took measurements of the entire property, including the crawl space area. Our Project specialist was able to provide a repair plan and proposal onsite, at the end of the inspection. We recommended replacing 29 of the existing posts and pads, strapping all of the posts to their respective girder beams, and installing UFP plates along the footing and mudsill. With these repairs we are effectively bolting the structure to the foundation helping protect the building from seismic activity.
Brian Godin
Little Rock, CA
May 1, 2017
Dalinghaus Construction sent out one of our knowledgable Project Specialists after analyzing inspection plans that Mr. Godin had on hand. During the inspection, our Project Specialist measured over eight inches of settlement in the back corner of the home with a reference point, or zero, near the front door. While performing the inspection, our Project Specialist created a repair plan and proposal based on what Mr. Godin wanted to accomplish. He wanted to attempt to lift the house back up to level, but his main priority was stabilizing the home to prevent any future settlement. The Project Specialist recommended installing 15 Push Piers, followed by 800 square feet of Polyurethane injections to fill the void created while lifting the home. The installation of the push piers stabilized the foundation and the home was lifted close to its original position. After lifting the home, the polyurethane was injected beneath the foundation's slab to both fill voids and provide additional stability to the soil beneath the home.
Daniel Argento
Rolling Hills, CA
April 21, 2017
Upon arriving at the property for inspection, our knowledgable Project Specialist could instantly see the signs of foundation settlement. The home was located on a slope and looked to be settling into the slope with a fulcrum down the middle of the home. After taking measurements our Project Specialist provided Daniel with a repair plan and proposal to attempt to lift back to level and stabilize the property from future settlement. The repair plan consisted of installing 12 push piers, replacement of posts and pads after lifting, and polyurethane injections to void fill under the footing once lifted. After submitting the engineering plans to the city and receiving the city permits, our production crew spent five days performing the repairs, and were able to safely recover over three inches of settlement within the home. After lifting was complete the production crew locked the push piers into place, began replacing the settled posts and pads, and prepared the property for polyurethane injections to help stabilize the soil and fill the void under the footing.
Gary Poarch
Lake Arrowhead, CA
April 21, 2017
After calling Dalinghaus Construction, an appointment was scheduled with one of our knowledgable Project Specialists to perform an inspection on the home and evaluate the crawl space. Upon inspection our Project Specialist confirmed there were no signs of foundation settlement within the home before jumping into the crawl space. The crawl space did not have any UFP plates, which are used to allow for the cripple wall or mudsill to be anchored directly to the foundation wall from the side. It also did not have any post straps or A35 framing angles. Our Project Specialist put a repair plan and proposal together while at the appointment and recommended installing UFP plates every 16 inches on center around the perimiter of the home, A35 framing angle to anchor the floor system to the cripple wall, and post straps to anchor the post and pads to their respective girder beams. When Mr. Poarch was ready to move forward with retrofitting his home the project was scheduled and our production crew spent two days installing the seismic retrofit materials. After completion, Mr. Poarch was happy with the project and was able to reach out to his insurance company to lower his earthquake insurance premium and deductible.
Nathan L.
Costa Mesa, CA
March 24, 2017
Upon arrival for the foundation inspection, our Project Specialist immediately discovered signs of foundation settlement. Using a Ziplevel Altimeter, we found over 11 inches of elevation drop over a twenty five foot span in the home. The cracks in the drywall and concrete slab lined up with the drops in elevation to support our Project Specialist's assumption of major settling and foundation failure. A repair plan and proposal were put together during the inspection, and our Project Specialist recommended installing 18 hydraulically driven, steel push piers to lift the home to maximum practical recovery along with 800 square feet of polyurethane to be injected to fill the foil between the soil and slab after lifting is completed.
