What causes settlement underneath stairs and stoops? Because Iowa and Nebraska consist of clay soil, settling stairs and stoops are a common occurrence in this area. This type of soil shifts and moves depending on moisture levels. Other causes of settling stairs and stoops include:
Regardless of what is causing your settling stair and stoop, Jerry's Waterproofing uses the best repair solutions and products to repair the problem.
Repairing your stair and stoop problems doesn't involve removing or rebuilding the affected area. This solution is only a band-aid for the problem, therefore it will sink just like the old one did. To permanently repair settlement, we use foundation repair products, such as steel piers. Steel piers will lift the stairs and stoop back to their original positions. Piers are screwed deep into the soil under the stairs and stoops, then the structure's weight is transferred onto the piers. Piers raise and stabilize the structure back to normal.
Steel piers are beneficial for settling homes. These piers are not affected by soil movement like other types of piers. Some advantages to installing steel piers include:
