Our Foundation Repair Process

  1. A small hole is created around the problem area.
  2. The supporting piers are pressed into the ground one by one.
  3. The piers are capped by either a solid concrete block or a steel pier head.
  4. A hydraulic jack is added to the block.
  5. The jack raises the foundation into the correct position.
  6. The jack is replaced by concrete cylinder and metal shims.
  7. The excavated area is filled in when ready.
  8. The foundation is now incredibly secure thanks to Bats Foundation Repair!

Bats Foundation Repair maintains one of the best warranties in the industry. Simply put, the piers we install are covered for the lifetime of the structure.

For steel piers, if any adjustments are required during the life of the home due to settling, Bats Foundation Repair will adjust all piered areas at no cost to the homeowner. Our concrete piers are still covered by a lifetime warranty and have zero adjustment charges for the first five years. After five years, there is a nominal adjustment charge.

Regardless of which option You choose, You can rest assured that we stand behind our slab repairs with a lifetime warranty.

For Pier & Beam homes we offer up to a three year warranty depending on repair plan chosen. We can do everything from a simple reshim to a full pier replacement with sonotubes and treated wood beam.

Concrete/Steel Pilings

Use of pressed pilings

Pilings are vertical structures that are pressed into the earth and support the foundation slab or beams. Pressed pilings come in two configurations, concrete and steel. Concrete pilings are concrete cylinders stacked on top of one another. The advantages are that they won’t corrode and are cost effective.

Use of steel pilings

Traditional Steel pilings are able to be driven deep, however, there is a potential drawback to the standard method of installation. They tend to be expensive and traditional steel pilings are bracketed to the side of the home, thereby providing no support directly underneath the slab. When installed with this method, the pier itself is only as strong as the bracket that supports the weight of your home. A newer method of steel piers is installing them directly underneath the perimeter grade beam in the same fashion as the pressed pilings. This eliminates the bracketing element from the system so that the weight of the home is supported directly by the steel piers.

Use of spread footings

Spread footings are a cheaper, temporary measure that creates a block (usually concrete) below a pier to keep it from sinking any farther. They may work temporarily, but will need a permanent solution.
