Photo Album: Stabilizing a Home's Shifting Foundation in Lethbridge, AB
These homeowners in Lethbridge, Alberta expressed concern with their new homes foundation walls settling and shifting. Looking for answers as well as a solution, they contacted the foundation repair experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to assess their situation and provide them with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of their expressed concerns. Our Production Team was then able to come to the home to install our patented Supportworks Push Pier System. The Push Piers are made of steel and are driven deep into the soil beneath a foundation to load-bearing strata. Once locked into place, the weight of the home is transferred from the original, unstable soils, through the piers, to the competent soil or bedrock below.
