Foundation Repair Case Studies: Helical Pier Installation in Jacksboro, TN
Master Services was contacted by a business owner in Jacksboro, TN, who expressed concern about a significant issue affecting one of their properties—a large retail store. The building displayed multiple cracks, commonly referred to as "ladder cracks," along with noticeable wall bowing. Following a meticulous inspection, our specialist concluded that the entire structure had sunk more than two inches, posing a considerable threat to its structural integrity. This not only jeopardized potential economic losses but also presented a safety hazard for both customers and employees.
After conducting a thorough assessment, our inspector recommended the installation of helical piers, specifically designed to address the unique clay terrain in the area. We engaged in a detailed discussion with the owner, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of this approach. The owner was particularly drawn to the idea of a minimally invasive solution, as it meant the store would not have to cease operations while our dedicated crew worked on-site. These helical piers offer substantial reinforcement to the foundation, ensuring long-term stability. With precision and expertise, our skilled crew successfully installed 22 piers, promptly stabilizing the entire building. Additionally, we have implemented a monitoring system for the outer walls to proactively prevent any further settling.
Within a remarkable span of three days, we effectively secured the entire building, guaranteeing uninterrupted economic activity for the surrounding area. Master Services takes pride in delivering swift and efficient solutions, effectively resolving the structural issues while prioritizing the safety and well-being of the retail store.
