Helical Pier Installation

We are foundation contractors that specialize in helical pier installation. With our skills and expertise, we can fix any foundation problem, so you can enjoy living in a safe and stable, dry home.

What Are Helical Piers Used For?

Helical piers, also known as anchors or screw piles — provide foundation stabilization. Helical piers are steel pipes with screw-like plates at one end. These “screws” are drilled into soil to pull the pier into place. They are used to stabilize or lift the foundation of your home.

Benefits of Helical Piers

  • Flexible. These piers can be used for light or heavy loads.
  • Quick Installation. We can have your foundation issues fixed in a jif.
  • Small footprint. This option requires less soil disturbance allowing for a faster clean up.

Tiebacks or Wall Anchors

Tiebacks, also known as wall anchors, offer a solution for wall stabilization. Rods like these are commonly used to stabilize and straighten bowed basement walls ‌or‌ ‌retaining‌ ‌walls.

A‌ ‌tieback‌ ‌consists of a bracket attached to the basement wall, a rod extending from the wall, and an anchor buried in the ground. We take extra precautions to carve out a large trench. Concrete is poured into the trench to hold the anchor in place and support your home. After the work is completed, the area is then covered with soil, sod, and seeds to make sure it looks ‌the‌ ‌same‌ ‌as‌ ‌it‌ ‌did‌ ‌before.

Exterior or Interior Cracked Wall Repair in Mid-Missouri

How Does Cracked Exterior or Interior Wall Repair Work?

Homeowners should never neglect cracks in exterior walls. These cracks allow water, insects, dirt, and debris to enter your home.

Our knowledgeable team of contractors can repair almost any cracked wall. If the wall is damaged beyond repair, we provide wall replacement services as well. Sealing can be a bandaid and not a long term solution. Because of that, we suggest fixing the problem by repairing cracks with tiebacks or waterproofing efforts.

Foundation Wall Replacements

Sometimes a foundation wall may be damaged beyond repair. Wall replacement can be costly, so it is typically a last-resort option. The process can also be time-consuming. The area of wall replacement will need to be excavated and scaffolding will be installed before the existing wall will be removed and discarded. Once that is completed, the new wall will be formed and reinforced. It’s time for concrete to be poured! After the concrete has properly cured, the forms can be removed to reveal your new wall and the scaffolding can be disassembled to allow the wall to bear the weight of your home again.
