Residential Foundation Repair
A Solid Foundation® Solution For Homeowners
CHANCE® helical piles are available in round or square shafts manufactured from high-strength galvanized steel. Special patented brackets are used to stabilize or lift foundations in distress. Hubbell Power Systems is the first company with a pre-engineered and manufactured underpinning system.
Once your CHANCE Certified Installer has received the plan of repair from a qualified design group or individual, they can proceed with the repair. Remember, one of the best investments you can make is to getting a soil boring report on your property. This will enable the designer to determine what type of anchor and to what depth it must go to stable soil. Usually the installer will excavate a hole at each anchor location wide enough and deep enough to place a bracket under the foundation. The leading section of the anchor with the proper number and size of helices will be installed by a rotary installing machine. Extensions are added until the helices are at the proper depth and the predetermined torque is achieved. At that point the bracket is added, the load is transferred to the anchor, and the building can be stabilized or lifted according to the plan of repair.

Sinking foundations, cracked and buckled walls and uneven floors are problems commonly faced annually by some quarter-million homeowners. Homes and other structures situated on unstable soils settle when their foundations are subjected to extreme moisture conditions or lack proper drainage. A shifting foundation may result in structural damage to your home and a loss of your investment.
Indications of foundation issues include foundation walls that are buckled or bowed, doors and windows that stick or don’t open properly, cracks in foundation walls, exterior walls, interior walls, and ceilings. Sunken or buckled interior concrete floors can also indicate a foundation issue.
