Anchor Foundation Repair
Our Process

PierAnchor is one of the only foundation companies in Texas to use the DUAL PIER INSTALLATION SYSTEM! That insures you double protection in every placement. 

To make your repairs, Anchor Foundation Repair must re-support your foundation on columns.  These columns are sectional compacted concrete pilings that meet state PSI standards and are the same used in the construction of bridges and overpasses on the state highways.  We install the columns by hydraulically driving them at approximately 3-5 thousand lbs. of pressure (PSI) beneath the foundation. 

Our columns, which are called pilings, serve two purposes.  First, the pilings serve as platforms upon which we set jacks to raise the settling portions of the foundation.  Second, the pilings transfer the weight of the home or building from the unstable surface soils to deeper, more stable layers referred as rock load bearing strata or jack refusal.  The process individually tests the bearing capability of the soil and piling at each location. The pilings will be spaced from five to nine feet (HUD/FHA/VA specification) apart around the section of your house that has settled.  At each piling location, we will hand-dig a hole that is approximately two feet square.  The dirt from the holes will be put on plywood to protect your grass. Any shrubs in the way will be remove off to the side and replanted, but their survival cannot be guaranteed.  In paved areas, such as patios and driveways, we will cut through the concrete so that we may properly install the pilings in the proper placement for maximum repair. 

At completion, we will re-pour the concrete we broke out.  The patches are poured carefully to match the texture of the original concrete as closely as possible, but the may not match the color to the older concrete.  A hairline crack will show where the old material meets the new.
