Cracked Brick or Block Repair Services

Cracked Brick or Block

Serving North and South Carolina and the Southeast including GA, TN and VA

Cracked foundations are very common in the Southeast, especially in Charlotte and throughout North and South Carolina. Common causes are expansive soils, poorly compacted backfill soils and poor drainage. If your foundation is settling, you may see cracked brick, cracks in mortar joints or separations at windows and doors. Mortar repair and brick crack repair are home maintenance projects that should not be ignored.

Foundation Repair Services: We’re Here to Help Protect Your Home

The most common solution to foundation settling is to install a helical pier underpinning system. This system is installed beneath the settling foundation to provide permanent support and arrest future settlement. In many cases, the helical pier system can be used to raise and level the settled portion of the foundation.

Helical piers are drilled down into the soil strata to reach more firm, stable soil below. A bracket is attached to the foundation to provide permanent support. The helical piers can be loaded immediately and create very little disturbance to the surrounding landscape.

In some cases, we may install a micropile underpinning system. Like the helical pier system, a micropile system works to stabilize your foundation. It is used in certain soil or loading conditions, or when very high load capacities are needed. Micropiles are commonly used when we encounter rock in the soil strata. It’s common to use micropiles in Asheville, Boone, Blowing Rock and other mountain communities in the Carolinas for foundation repair due to the rocky terrain.

Helical Anchors vs. Helical Piers

You’ll often hear the phrases “helical piles,” “helical piers,” and “helical anchors” used interchangeably. However, they’re not precisely the same. A “pier” is typically a helical foundation system loaded in axial compression, while an “anchor” is usually loaded in axial tension.
