Foundation Repair Using Helical Piles
Foundation Repair Yonkers NY
The existing block foundation walls started to settle and separate at its mortar joints. The foundation deteriation caused the house to begin settle.This foundation failure affected the entire house, not only the first floor but also his doors and windows.
Homeowner decided to take down the existing concrete footings and the crumbling block foundation and pour new concrete walls to remedy the problem. After the concrete demolishing and the excavation began, a water presence was observed coming from under the bedrock as well as from the sides of the new excavated footings.
After a soil boring test analysis, it was discovered that an underground stream of water was running beneath the house’s foundation. This causing horizontal and diagonal (sloped) movement and eventually separation of its cinder block walls.
The structural engineer overseeing this project recommended the installation of 1.75’’ square shaft helical piles inside the new concrete footings .
Five helical piles were installed to a torque of 5000 ft.lb. The piles were caped with a 6 inch new construction cap and thus preventing future settlement in the future.
