Pier Jacking Can Save Your Foundation Southwest Marietta, GA
pier jacking

When a foundation is laid improperly, big problems can arise. Number one on the list is when everything begins to slide or settle far beyond any intention. Some contractors don’t build a foundation deep enough and stable enough to withstand soil conditions like clay and muck. In addition, long-ago buried debris and sinkholes can also take out the foundation, leaving a house uninhabitable. That’s why you always need a contractor who knows foundations inside out.

What is Pier Jacking?

Pier jacking is used to shore up a sinking foundation before the building collapses. However, pier jacks are often used to repair a foundation rather than installing them while building to give more support for the building, even when erosion takes place. As a result, many homeowners wind up frantically searching for a way to repair their foundations without having to rebuild them. If you plan on building, ensure pre-construction piers are part of the blueprints.

Pre-Construction Piers
Using pre-construction piers to support a foundation during building creates a far more stable foundation than those built without piers. In addition, the pre-construction piers we use at Anglin’s are installed with our proprietary method of attaching the pier bracket to the concrete without drilling holes into the structure to install the piers. We’ve been using this method since 1930, and we guarantee it.
Helical Piers
One type of piers we use in pre-construction is helical piers. A helical pier is a steel shaft with a helix that curves like a spiral around it, so it turns like a screw. These piers are very efficient with soil that is inconsistent with a stable foundation. Helical piers can also be used to repair and support a failing foundation.
Resistance or Push Piers
Resistance piers, also called push piers, are another type of pier we use. A resistance or push pier is a straight steel shaft installed by pushing it down into the soil using hydraulics and then using the weight of the building itself as resistance, holding it in place.
Slab Piers
Slab piers stabilize concrete slabs such as those used in sidewalks, driveways and patios. These piers are used to support a slab that has been raised. They provide the support needed to hold the slab and allow the area under the concrete to be re-filled, adding stabilization.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
