Piers & Beams Repair in Houston, TX

Gonzo Foundation Repair specializes in repairing piers and beams in Houston, TX and surrounding areas. Pier and beam foundations, popularly known as crawl space foundations, are among the most important parts of your property’s foundation. But its condition may deteriorate over time. Poor exterior water damage, expansive clay, excessive pressure on the foundation, soil erosion, and continuous soil change often lead to cracks in the pier and beam foundation. The only way to deal with this condition is by repairing the pier and beams. This is where we can come to your rescue

Pier and Beam Foundation Failure Signs

Are you finding it hard to open or close your doors? Or maybe there are sudden cracks on the walls? We request you to contact us immediately if you see the following symptoms:

  • Bowing walls
  • Sinking foundation
  • Sticking windows and doors
  • Leaning chimney
  • Settling foundation
  • Slab cracks
  • Garage cracks
  • Leaning walls
  • Cracks on walls

Ground movement and bad drainage can make it difficult for you to open or close your doors and windows. The more your home settles, the cracks on the walls and pier and beam foundation get bigger. We will send a team of experts who can inspect the pier and beam foundation and plan to repair it immediately.

3 ways to repair a pier and beam foundation

We follow the three most popular techniques to repair a pier and beam foundation.

Pressed pilings lifting

This is a globally accepted technique that fortifies your pier and beam foundation for years. You don’t need to worry about the foundation settling down again. In this method, we lift your current pier and beam foundation with pressed fillings. This means we will provide added support to the present foundation with new support beams. We use steel and concrete pilings while lifting the foundation. They improve the strength of the foundation and also offer reinforced support to your home.

The pressed filling technique is usually the most affordable solution. We recommend this method for homes experiencing low to moderate damage from foundation settlings. Merely adding new support beams can provide the strength your foundation needs to keep the home steady.

Replacing joists

We often see rotten joists while inspecting pier and beam foundations. Our experts consider it as a Grade-2 problem, meaning it comes under moderate to high seriousness. Many companies suggest patching the rotten joists. But we believe otherwise. We think that patching the joists isn’t a long-term solution. It may solve the issue for a few months or maybe a couple of years, but you will have to call a professional again. We don’t provide temporary services.

Instead, we replace rotten joists altogether. It may cost you more than repairing the joists, but we assure you that it will keep your house safe for years. Replacing the joists involves re-shimming your home, which means lifting floors of your pier and beam foundation. We insert steel shims between the joists and floors. Depending on the condition, we will also provide additional support to the joists.

Push pier system

We use stainless steel push piers for this system. It is effective in dealing with severe damages to the pier and beam foundation. This is the most effective method to repair settling foundations caused by shrinking or swelling clays, soil compaction, soil erosion, and organic soils. The primary objective of the push pier system is to stabilize and support your home’s load-bearing walls. The steel push piers transfer the weight of your home from the poor-quality soil to themselves. We install the steel piers deep into the ground to prevent inclining or settling even if the soil quality doesn’t change.

We don’t go away right after installing the steel piers. Our experts will test the load capacity of the piers using the highest weight possible. The advantage of using a push pier system is it doesn’t rely on skin friction to provide support like some of the other methods. Although it may sound like an expensive procedure, we don’t charge a lot. The only expensive part of this method is buying new steel push piers.

I have had Gonzo Foundation work on two of my homes in the past 8 years. Our first house shifted a bit a few year after foundation repair, Edward was true to his word and fixed it without charge as per our warranty. His team is very knowledgeable and work was done on time and on budget. I wouldn't hesitate to call on his services again.
