Foundation Repair Case Studies: Installation of 22 Piers in Scott Depot, WV

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016 by Michael Johnston


Lois K. had problems with her home settling and cracking in many exterior areas plus the cracks in the drywall due to de stabilization. She called Alford Home Solutions on December 10, 2013 hoping that we could fix her house.  Lois K. called our office and set up her free inspection and we sent out our Solution Specialist, Jerry Hargraves, to conduct a thorough inspection. He recommended the installation of 22 Helical Piers to be placed in strategic areas of the exterior of her home in order to support the troubled areas.


Alford Home Solutions dug down to the footer in 22 different areas and installed the helical piers in order to stabilize the house. Of course the digging was not that simple and many things had to be removed such as landscaping and the HVAC. The helical piers that were installed were 50 feet in the ground on average on top of solid bedrock. The installation of the 22 helical piers was a success and the house is now stabilized. The home owner will no longer have to worry about further damage. Some correction was made in the drywall and brick as well.
