A homeowner has lived in her house in Athens, OH, for 24 years, and during that time she has noticed cracks in a foundation wall getting worse. She previously tried to patch these cracks on the problematic garage wall.
Hoping to find a permanent solution to what she suspected was foundation settlement, the owner contacted Ohio Basement Authority. Inspector John Becker Sr. pointed out the stair-step cracking pattern on the wall is indeed a common sign of foundation settlement and wall failure.
He suggested the installation of Push Piers under the garage foundation to lift and stabilize this settling wall. One of our expert crews installed four of these durable piers, and the homeowner is pleased to have a garage that will be structurally sound for many years to come!
