The homes in Beatrice, NE sit on soil that is expansive. This means that wet conditions cause the soil to expand while dry conditions cause the soil to shrink. This repeated expanding and contracting leads to soil shifting and foundation shifting. Shifting foundations can lead to several structural issues that can be dangerous for you and your family. Some of the signs that you may be in need of foundation repair are:
Do not ignore any of these signs; let the professionals at Jerry's Waterproofing come and give your home a free inspection. If we find that you are in need of foundation repair, we use underpinning products such as steel push piers and helical piers. These piers are driven deep into the ground through unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Each pier is then individually load tested, then the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers using hydraulic jacks. Once this is done, the structure will be back to its original level and structurally sound again.
