Soils vary greatly, and in many parts of the Charlotte NC and the surrounding areas, new construction must take place on soils with poor load-bearing characteristics. Even if you are building on ground that is stable, it is a good idea to reinforce the foundation to prevent settlement.
Without a solution to overcome the limitations of poor soil, even well-constructed homes are likely to suffer with settlement issues. Footings and foundation walls will crack and bulge. Chimneys will tilt and separate. Homes, buildings and concrete slabs will crack and buckle.
Fortunately, structural engineers have developed techniques to give buildings and other structures a solid, stable structure in spite of poor soil conditions. When you need added support for your structure’s foundation, using helical piers from Moisture Loc is one of the strongest and most easily installed options available.
