Foundation Repair: Helical Piers

Stabilizing Settling Foundations, One Home At a Time

Proudly Serving Throughout Rochester & Buffalo NY

The best home stabilization method, hands down, is Grip-Tite® Helical Piering. Helical Piers allow the weight of a home to transfer from unstable ground to load-bearing piers. They are installed through mechanical screws into deep stable soils.

These Helical Piers are the most effective home stabilization option in Buffalo and Rochester, NY. They guarantee that your home will rest on deep stable soil. It is a sad fact that each year thousands of homeowners are faced with pricey repairs because of homes being built upon a faulty foundation. These costs are avoidable by installing Grip-Tite® Helical Pier System prior to construction.

Do I Need Foundation Repair?

A lot of homeowners in Rochester and Buffalo do not know if their home's foundation even needs repair or is in danger of a cave-in. If you are a homeowner it is important that you know the signs, which include:

  • Windows and doors that stick or are hard to open
  • Gaps in window and door frames
  • Interior plaster walls cracking
  • Nail pops in ceilings and walls
  • Leaning walls
  • Window and door trim developing spaces
  • Uneven floors
  • Tilting chimney
  • Sinking Foundation
  • Cracks in foundation or basement walls

After we install Grip-Tite® settling foundation repair in your home, you can expect mortar cracks to close, doors to close more easily and windows to open and close with less binding.

This settling foundation repair can be installed year round and in a few days.
