As Manitobans we all know someone (maybe even yourself) who has a home with shifting and/or sinking home additions or porches. The challenges facing this common problem are: 1) how do you stop the structure from moving; and 2) how do you get underneath the structure.
First, installing a post on a cement block could support the structure but when the freeze and thaw cycle occurs your structure is going to continue moving. Your best bet against movement is a deep foundation which anchors below the frost line.
The challenge of course is to get a deep foundation system installed below your existing foundation without having to move, remove or lift the structure.
The great news is that there is a solution that works as an effective deep foundation and that can be installed under existing structures – Postech Thermal Piles.
Using our mini-excavator we can dig just under the existing structure and install a screw pile section by section in such a way that it installs under the existing structure’s support beam. Below is a picture of a recent project where Postech Winnipeg installed a screw pile under a cement beam which was at grade.
