Check out BDB’s case study on sinking foundation repair: how we repaired a sinking commercial building.

The signs of a sinking foundation are not difficult to spot. Cracks in foundation walls or in drywall sheets are telltale signs of trouble. Stairstep-shaped cracks in brick or block mortar are always indications that your basement or foundation is shifting.

How We Repair Foundation Settlement

SafeBase push pier system | Sinking Foundation RepairBDB Waterproofing has more than 30 years of experience in repairing sinking and settling foundations. We know what works and what doesn’t. This is why we recommend our push pier system.  Over time, the piers will actually be able to push your home back up to where it needs to be.

Push Pier System

A push pier system will be able to mechanically transfer the weight of your house (or business) to stable, suitable soils under your home. We use SafeBasements™ Push Piers that are hydraulically pushed into the ground to predetermined depths where those deep, suitable soils are found. These anchors are much less expensive than coring and concrete pier work.

  1. We attach to your home’s footing a series of SafeBasements™ Push Pier brackets of heavy, industrial-strength steel.
  2. High-pressure equipment hydraulically drives rugged steel piers down to solid bedrock or proper load-bearing strata. Keep in mind that this reinforcement is done below ground, so nothing is exposed. Also, each pier is individually anchored and tested for successful load-bearing.
  3. Finally, the weight of your home is carefully transferred from the original unstable soil to rock-solid piers so your home or commercial building is secure with the pier system permanently in place and hidden from view.
