Foundation Repair | House Leveling | Over 80 Years Experience

At Olshan, we understand that finding signs of structural problems around your home can be a bit unnverving. For most homeowners, you don't know where to start. It's important to find the right company to help you navigate through the process of diagnosing the problem, identifying the right solution and getting the job completed on time and on budget. Foundation problems are caused by the continuously changing conditions of the soils around your home. Clay soil in the weather affected zone expands as it absorbs moisture and contracts as it dries - which can cause foundations to move, settle and crack. Beneath these active layers lie more stable soils with consistent moisture content. The most effective foundation repair methods penetrate below the weather-affected zone. Other factors that influence foundation performance include: seasonal weather changes, poor drainage trees and tree roots, under-slab plumbing leaks. With drilled piers, proper depths are difficult to identify and may not extend past the weather-affected zone. Improper installations can lead to failures and most jobs take two to three weeks, which can cause extensive loss of plants. Driven steel piers may require a breakout of a portion of your home's foundation footer. These piers can also bow and flex when not installed properly, and driven steel piers also have the potential of future corrosion in the weather-affected zone. Like steel, helical piers tend to buckle and the load the structure cannot determine depth requirements. Plus, corrosive soils can have long-term effects on the steel shaftsand the bracket supports the foundation indirectly. Simple pressed pilings often face installation problems in tightly compacted soil conditions where penetration and depth is challenged. Light structures and additions, can also limit piling depth. Our patent-pending Cable Lock ST Plus is the leading foundation repair method available. Only Olshan Foundation Solutions can offer you more than eight decades of experience and the superior technology of the Cable Lock ST Plus System. Cable Lock ST Plus hybrid foundation repair system combines the strength and longevity of concrete pilings with the depth of a steel pier - locked together with the cable for a deeper, stronger, more reliable repair.

At Olshan, we diagnose the current problem with your home work with to develop a repair plan that makes sense for you. When you meet with your certified structural technician, he'll discuss a range of warranty options. Armed with this information, you can feel confident you're making the right decision. The available Cable Lock ST Plus Lifetime Warranty is transferable - if any adjustments are required during the warranty period, due to settling, Olshan will adjust all areas previously underpinned. Performing our work is designed to be easy on you and your home - quick, clean and safe, performed by our highly trained and experienced crew - completed on time and done right. We will relocate any plants from the work area - we then create access holes. The Cable Lock ST Plus starter segments are pressed into the ground at each predetermined location and subsequent interlocking steel segments are threaded onto the cable and driven to the required depth and pressure. The number of steel segments varies based on soils. In difficult soil conditions, steel sections can be washed into the ground using high-pressure water, then a hybrid transition piece is placed atop the last steel segment, and the first concrete cylinder is placed atop of the transition piece. The concrete segments are added onto the cable and driven into the ground to the point of refusal. A pile cap is then positioned on top of the last concrete cylinder and the entire system is locked together with a cable. Trained personnel direct the repair process while carefully monitoring the reactions of the structure. Upon completion, spacers are inserted on concrete blocks to support the building.The top portion of the holes are then re-filled with soil and any surface concrete breakthroughs are patched. Plants are replanted and the work areas, walks, and driveways are cleaned. The Cable Lock ST Plus system installation process takes one or two days in most cases. Never fear, Olshan is here!
