Alford Home Solutions Case Studies: 10 Helical Piers in Parkersburg, WV

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016 by Jenna Brown


The homeowners in Parkersburg, WV were not happy when they started to notice their foundation settling, front door sticking, and most concerning to them were the cracks inside and outside of their home. Jerry Hargraves, Solution Specialist, conducted a thorough inspection and found that the left side slab of the addition had settled. The homeowners’ goal was to make their foundation solid again but of course with any job there are a few challenges.  Some of the concrete had to be carefully cut and removed in order to install the helical piers, there was a fence that was in the vicinity of the needed repairs, and the crew had to coordinate with landscapers and concrete professionals after the job was completed in order to ensure the property was in tip top shape after stabilizing the foundation.


John Goodall, Foreman, and his crew installed 10 helical piers at an approximate depth of 20-30' into the bedrock in order to stabilize the foundation in 4 days. The home was 2200 square feet and the outside looked as if we never touched it once completed.
