The homes in Crete, NE are prone to having foundation issues due to the ever-changing moisture content in the soil. As the soil gets wet from heavy rains, it will expand. Then, during times of drought, the soil will shrink. This constant shifting of the soil will also cause your foundation to continually shift and move. This movement will eventually cause foundation problems. Jerry's Waterproofing has some signs to look for that may indicate that your home is in need of foundation repair. Some of these signs include:
If you see any of these signs, we will install either steel push piers or helical piers to repair your foundation. These are driven into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach the solid layers of soil deep underground. Each pier is then load tested, and after testing, the entire weight of the structure is transferred onto the piers using hydraulic jacks. The foundation is then returned to its original level and is structurally sound again.
