Benefits of Foundation Maintenance

Repairing and maintaining your home’s foundation will prevent problems from developing, maintain the value of your home, and save you money in the long run.

Proven Technology for the Life of Your Home

  1. Exterior Pier
  2. Polyurethane Foam
  3. Interior Pier
  4. New Construction
  5. French Drain
  6. Root Barrier

1- Exterior Pier

Exterior piers are used when the footing or perimeter of your home has settled due to unstable soil. The piers are installed from the perimeter of your home. A round, helical steel pier is installed using a hydraulic machine. Minimal damage to landscaping can be expected as the holes are filled in and your yard is returned to its original position.

2- Polyurethane foam

Polyurethane foam injections involve drilling nickel-sized injection holes into the concrete foundation and filling the voids underneath with an earth friendly polyurethane that lifts the settling concrete foundation. We utilize this non-destructive and extremely effective concrete leveling solution to keep cost and homeowner inconvenience to a minimum. Polyurethane Foam injections are our least invasive process for foundation repair inside the home with the smallest amount of damage to preserve existing floor coverings. Most repairs can be completed in just one day.

3- Interior Pier

Interior piers are used when an interior portion of the home hsa settled due to unstable soil. These piers must be installed from inside your home. A small portion of flooring and concrete is removed (approximately 2’x2′) and the helical steel pier is installed through the opening. The area is then filled in with concrete and ready for the flooring to be repaired. The homeowner is responsible for replacing the flooring.

4- New Construction

We will work alongside your architect, engineer or general contractor to maximize pier spacing and performance. Our helical piers can be devised to resist or support any load or application and installation is fast. There is no concrete curing time and predefined capacities are predictable, putting you in control. New Construction Piers should be considered when constructing additions and add-ons to existing structures. Installing piers prior to building can ensure the foundation won’t fail in the future. 

5- French Drain

A French Drain is a series of ditches lined with rocks or gravel used to draw water away from an area. It is used to protect the foundation of a house from ground and surface water that does not drain properly on its own. Using the forces of gravity, French Drains are installed down from the area to be drained to an area that can support the redirected water.

6- Root Barrier

Since trees surrounding your home can each absorb 100 to 600 gallons of water each day, they definitely impact the expansion and contraction of the soil around and under the foundation. A Root Barrier is a physical separator between tree roots and the soil you don’t want them to infiltrate. It diverts roots downward, decreasing the moisture levels around your home.

    PowerJack was really great about communicating exactly what they would do for our house.
    The situation: Gutters were missing from our house when we moved in, and
    … read more it had lost quite a bit of dirt around the foundation in years past. After the heavy rainfall began, we began seeing some cracks in some of our walls. We had heard good things about PowerJack and their special helix pier system. We received a free quote from PowerJack several years prior but hadn't needed work at that time. But since the rain came, we found the foundation was in pretty good shape otherwise but the back porch area had started sloping about 3/8ths of an inch.
    The day of the job: They came with a knowledgeable working crew and all their equipment. The job was done extremely well. The size of those beefy piers they put in really gives us confidence that our back porch is now stable. They were very professional, with good communication between us, and the foreman on the job. Afterward, they cleaned the area and deposited the dirt they dug (that they had placed on a polyvinyl sheet) where we had indicated, rinsed off the windows, and the extra spatters of concrete. The area where they had installed piers was left with a smooth finish, unlike most patch places in concrete I've seen.
    I would recommend them to anyone needing repairs of this kind to be done by this company. They have a transferable warranty for the life of your home, which is great to know! A truly superior job! These guys really know what they're doing!

    These guys are so great! They were easy to work with and so courteous! And while other companies charge a pretty hefty fee to switch your warranty and try to find … read more a way to void it, Power Jack honors their word and their work. Thanks so much for being a company that homeowners can trust!
