What causes the Foundation's failure?
Well, sometimes when a house is built, the land on which it is built is not always ideal. Sometimes the earth can not support the weight of the structure, but more often than not, it has to do more on the ground. Look, very common in soils with extensive clays. These clays shrink and are well when the moisture in their environment changes. Your house is based on the top of the ground. There are many things that can change the moisture in the soil. Roots from trees that you may own, poor drainage, plumbing and Mother Nature. If the soil does not shrink and coalesce, and the clay in the soil is damp and dry on the ground, it can see signs of failure in the foundation. It takes a long time. As mentioned earlier, it is not possible to know if the foundation is disturbed before it detects the symptoms. There are precautions you can take, for example, if you make sure you have proper drainage and fasten any water pipe leak. For others who have no control, for example, if our area is experiencing a very humid period.

It is all about pumping cement cement into the holes. This mortar is compacted in a thick concrete mass and provides a handsome bearing for the plate.
The piering is then equipped with mechanical sockets to really lift the ground where it is to be located. After the beam is lifted, a specially planned spread and pier are held.
If there is a foundation failure, it does not mean that a homeowner has an error. Although once you notice that you have a problem, you should take all possible steps to correct it before causing further damage.
