Helical piers are basically large, steel galvanized screws. Installation involves mechanically "screwing" them into the earth, beneath your foundation, until competent, load-bearing strata or bedrock is reached. https://foundationtechnology.com/services/helical-piers-anchors/ The helical pier is then mounted with a steel bracket to your foundation footing to achieve permanent stability, even in the most unstable soil conditions. Helical piers are the only permanent foundation repair solution. This is because they are able to bypass the problem soils that caused foundations to fail in the first place. If you rebuild your foundation on the same soil, the problem will eventually return. Schedule a 100% Free Inspection ... https://foundationtechnology.com/schedule-a-free-inspection/

Support us on Patreon: http://bit.ly/2tdla40 Our journey from the beginning: http://bit.ly/PLFLdayone We are working on installing a more elaborate water system before winter strikes, but we ran in to a huge problem: we needed to dig a trench on a 47 degree slope that had lots of tree roots and was full of rocks. This exact situation made it not ideal for an excavator OR a Ditch Witch, meaning we had to get creative. Jesse remembered that he knew someone that had a tool that used air to dig through soil, and he thought it just may do the task, so he gave him a call to see if we might be able to borrow it. Miraculously, he said yes, and we got to work! While we were off to a slow start due to a learning curve, this tool surpassed our expectations and we now have a 200' ditch 3' deep that we dug using air! Now, we're on to more challenges to getting a cistern and plumbing system in before winter, but at least our ditch is dug which we thought would be the hardest part!
