When there is excess water or moisture in the ground it causes the soil to expand, but when there is no water, the soil begins to shrink. This back and forth between expanding and shrinking causes foundation settlement because of the constant movement. Cracks in your foundation are a sign that this is occurring underneath you. Other signs that may indicate that you are in need of foundation repair in Clarinda are sloping floors, floor cracks, bowing walls, and sticking doors/windows.
Underpinning products such as steel piers and helical piers are used to level and stabilize a failing foundation. The piers are first driven underground beneath your foundation until they anchor in solid soil layers. Then, the weight is shifted onto them and the foundation and structure are supported and raised. Helical tieback anchors are used to repair bowing or leaning walls. These helical tieback anchors will level the wall back to its original level and also strengthen the wall so it will not bow or lean in the future.
