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
- Exterior Pier
- Polyurethane Foam
- Interior Pier
- New Construction
- French Drain
- Root Barrier
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.
“Power Jack did a fantastic job at our historical home in Mount Vernon. We could not ask for a better job. The team that sent out to our home was extremely professional, courteous, and hard working!
Thank you, thank you! We recommend this company to anyone who wants the job don right the first time.”
“Great company! Arrived for review and estimate on time. Received competitive bid after two other companies had come out. Arrive and started the day they promised. Cesar and the crew were outstanding! Constantly checked the interior and reshot laser measurements frequently to establish a proper level for our home and check to see if any interior walls had cracked from leveling. I was truly thrilled to be able to open and close all doors in a now-level house. If you need any foundation work, please contact PowerJack and give them the opportunity to provide a free estimate before work is done.“
“Calling Power Jack in Paris TX was the BEST thing I ever did. They shot foam that leveled our house however, due to a drainage issue the house became unleveled again. They fully backed their warranty and came back to fix the problem. I can’t say enough good things about the staff (especially Jack, Jim, Alberto and Mason). Everyone is truly professional and treats you like you are their only customer! I wish all companies were as professional and caring as these folks are. If you have drainage issues or foundation issues I highly recommend calling them. They will not only fix your problem but do HONOR their warranty!“
