On April 21, 2018, Keith’s crew from KC Waterproofing was in Olathe, KS. Mr. Chris Dennis had a settling garage slab that was causing his walls to sustain damage. This is considered a foundation repair because we are repairing the foundation of the garage.

Piering Repair to Settling Garage Slab

To fix this issue, we first installed four piers, three along the west side of the garage, which had sustained the most settling issues, and one pier on the north side of the garage. In total, the slab was down two inches! Three of these piers were standard steel piers and the other one was a 250 ECP, Earth Contact Products, pier. Piers are driven deep into the ground into stable soil. A plate is then affixed the the foundation and the two are attached. The weight of the foundation then rests upon the piers and gives it stability and strength that it was previously lacking.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any final photos of the holes we dug for the piers being filled--the homeowner was doing it himself! We love the participation! After the issue was resolved, we answered any questions the homeowner had, cleaned up the area, and packed up our equipment and crew.
