Helical pier systems are a permanent way to remedy your foundation issues. Dalinghaus Construction’s Orange County helical pier installations are done along the foundations’ footings and grade beams as needed to generate the desired results.
Helical piers are screwed into the soil below the home and are monitored and logged during the installation process. Once all the piers have achieved the required depth and capacity capabilities the brackets are installed to the foundation and the installed helical. Loads are then transferred onto the pier system, lifting can also be achieved during this load transfer, if desired. All our Orange County helical pier systems and beam foundations are hot-dipped galvanized to add additional corrosion protection and supply the product with extended life expectancy.
Signs and Symptoms
We inspect thousands of foundations each year, and we’ve become quite familiar with the signs and symptoms associated with a foundation that needs repair. These are some of the most common signs that we see in Southern California.
- Damaged Doors & Windows
Sticking or hard to open/close doors and windows can be a sign that the frame has become out of square.
- Tilting Chimneys or Fireplaces
A leaning or tilted chimney tends to be a more noticeable foundation issue. It is also a very dangerous problem when your chimney tilts or leans, it can either fall in on your home, or the mortar can come loose and fall.
- Uneven Floors or Cracks
Cracks in your concrete floor slab can be a sign of foundation settlement. However, it may also be that the slab floor alone has settled. There are times when your slab floor may sink independently of the foundation walls, damaging the floors but not necessarily the walls.
- Drywall Cracks
Cracks in drywall throughout the house are one of the most common signs of foundation problems. Typical drywall cracks will appear around door frames and windows, in the ceiling, in corners, and along the wall. Drywall tape can be a good indicator, especially if it’s ripping or coming loose. Drywall cracks can also be a sign of sinking crawl space supports, sinking floors, or heaving floors.
