Baird Foundation Repair visited a home on the northeast side of San Antonio. This home was built on a concrete slab and a pier and beam foundation making it, a combination home. Unfortunately, the foundation of the home was built completely wrong, leaving the homeowner to fix the problem themselves. The homeowner initially called a different foundation repair company and started to notice the same problems only a few months later. Unknown to the homeowner, they only provided a temporary fix. It was obvious because cracks that they had repaired, reopened.
After the headache of dealing with this for so long, the homeowners knew it was time to call a company that would provide a permanent fix, Baird Foundation Repair. When we exposed the piers that needed to be removed, we found water resting inside the pier itself. This caused, even more, damage to their foundation. They even had a termite issue due to the unfinished foundation and use of wrongful materials.
On the pier and beam part of the foundation, we used our SmartJack® system designed to straighten and strengthen sagging floors over a crawl space foundation. For the slab foundation part of the home, we used our Push Pier system. Our Push Pier system is the best foundation repair option available when soil conditions are unknown, providing a permanent solution for a settlement issue.
This was the large job, but we know the homeowner can now rest assured knowing their home is permanently stabilized.
