Is Your Foundation Sinking?
You may have a sinking foundation slab if you notice:
  • Windows and doors are sticking, hard to open
  • There are large gaps in window and door frames
  • Multiple nail pops are appearing in ceilings and walls
  • Walls are beginning to lean noticeably
  • Floors are starting to become uneven
  • Chimneys are tilting or leaning
  • Cracks can be seen in foundations or basement walls

    When buildings begin to lean or sink, True North's foundation piering process can help. We are certified Foundation Supportworks foundation experts in British Columbia.

    Concrete Foundation Lifting Steel Jacks Installed
    First, some topsoil is removed and high-tensile steel piering jacks are installed into the ground next to the foundation with high pressure hydraulic pumps attached.

    Steel Jacks Anchor House to Solid Bedrock
    The hydraulic jacks drive steel piers down to solid bedrock, always maintaining an even weight distribution amongst the pilings. Cement grout is injected into gaps for increased strength.

    Concrete Foundation Lifting Drainage & Soil Covering Replaced
    Lastly, the hydraulic pumps are removed and the drainage system replaced and tested. The topsoil is replaced with no reinforcement showing above ground.
    The multiple foundation piers secure the foundation to the bedrock. The building is now stable and guaranteed to stay that way.
