Pier Post Corrections for Los Angeles Properties
Raised foundations often require regular inspections to make sure that pier posts are continuing to serve their purpose, and have not been dislocated as a result of general settling
Inevitable Settlement of Pier Posts
Over the lifespan of your home, it is inevitable that your pier posts will settle at different rates.
This is due to a variety of factors.
Some of the areas beneath your floor system may have more compacted soil, other areas may have more exposure to moisture or water run-off, and still other areas may be exposed to higher loads.
It could be said that no two of the pier posts supporting your home will live the same life. As a result, your property will ultimately face severe structural consequences if your foundation not regularly inspected and maintained.
Without keeping your pier posts properly intact, floors can sink or become uneven, drywall can crack, interior doors can become difficult to close, and gaps in your baseboard and floor can develop.
It’s best to have your foundation inspected every few years to ensure that your home is sitting on a structurally sound pier post system.
When you might need underpinning
Underpinning is a type of foundation repair that deepens the foundation to bypass sub-standard soil the home is currently resting on. The goal is to mitigate ongoing settlement.
There are several methods of foundation underpinning. Some types of underpinning can involve caissons (site specific steel reinforced concrete piles) and grade beams (steel reinforced concrete beams just below the grade level). The type of underpinning best suited for your home will depend heavily on the type of soil at your location. If your home requires foundation underpinning, Anchorstrong Construction will design the most practical method for your particular circumstances.
