What is Foundation Piering

If you are researching “foundation piering in Kansas City,” you are probably feeling some anxiety about the state of your house or business. In fact, you might not be sleeping well at night because you are so concerned about the integrity of your structure. 

 You may have noticed significant cracks in your concrete foundation, doors and windows that are difficult (or impossible) to open or close, cracks in your home’s drywall, bowed basement walls, or sloped floors. No matter the cause of these issues, you are correct in determining that these symptoms are typical signs of foundation problems that shouldn’t be ignored.

 The good news is that JLB Foundation Repair and Basement Waterproofing can help. We can improve the integrity of your foundation by installing foundation piering on your structure. You’ll sleep better tonight knowing that help is on the way. 

 However, please contact us immediately if you are noticing signs of foundation issues in your home or business. The time to act is now. Otherwise, what could have been a simple fix might turn into a more involved (and expensive) process.

JLB Foundation Repair crews use Magnum’s foundation repair products. These American-made products are made with high-quality materials and backed by a 20-year warranty. The installation process is less invasive than other products on the market and can be installed faster.

 Magnum’s push pierring system uses a series of hydraulic rams to push consecutive 36-inch sections of steel into the ground to refusal or load-bearing strata. Once the structure is stabilized, it is lifted at each of the required pier locations. The steel piers are then attached to the brackets that were previously mounted to the building’s foundation. 

 While this is the general approach that is typically taken for homes with foundation issues, JLB Foundation Repair doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach. Each situation is different, and not all homes are built the same. For that reason, we will choose the right bracket and pier for your home. In addition, during the installation process, every pier is tested to ensure it can support more than the weight of your home. 

 We know that you probably aren’t excited about having to repair the foundation of your home or business. Still, the good news is that once JLB Foundation Repair installs the Magnum products, you will have a strong, stable foundation for years to come. We will also help you with the drainage and grade work to ensure that you won’t ever experience foundation issues again. 

 Why choose JLB Foundation Repair? JLB has more than 60 years of experience in the foundation repair industry. While we are known for solving problems once they occur, we also can make sure that foundation problems never develop.
