HELICAL PIERS

Helical Piers have become one of the most widely used foundation repair options in the industry for both residential and commercial structure. PowerLift is an industry leader in the installation of a wide range of helical piers. This process is also used to support lighter loads such as porches, wing walls, decks, patios, and stairways.

HIGH DENSITY POLYURETHANE FOAM INJECTION

This process, also known as Foam Lifting, offers the latest and most advanced form of concrete repair and soil stabilization. PowerLift is an industry leader in High Density Polyurethane foam injection foundation and slab repair services.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION PIERS

PowerLift installs a wide variety of pre-construction helical piers. This service is often used for new construction and stabilizing add ons to both residential and commercial structures.

MUD-JACKING & PRESSURE GROUTING

These services are used to fill voids created by soil consolidation and erosion as well as those created by lifting procedures. This process is also used to raise floor slabs throughout the interior of homes and buildings, leveling floors, and realigning interior walls and doors.

COMPACTION GROUTING

This process is used to fill voids and consolidate soils at various depths below grade. Compaction grouting reduces unpredictable soil consolidation and increases the load carrying capability of the soil.

FLOOR BRACING

POWER Lift provides a full line of wood floor repair services for both residential and commercial structures. These services include the addition and replacement of wood floor joists, stringers, box sills, and various wood support members that have allowed floors and walls to settle. This often includes the replacement of rotten and termite damaged wood.

CONCRETE PUMPING

These services are often needed in the repair of settling foundations and wood floors. The ability to pump concrete into hard to reach places is often the key to successful shoring of wood floors and the laterial reinforcement of existing foundations.

MASONRY REPAIR

Replacing broken brick and tuck pointing cracked joints are common masonry repairs required to make a foundation repair job complete. The replacement of broken brick is not recommended in every instance. Tuck pointing and mortar patching generally accomplish the desired appearance.

Results as indicated in the photos above are not uncommon when quality foundation repairs are performed. POWER Lift takes pride in achieving the best results possible in every phase of our work. If the cracks in your home or building can be closed or corrected, POWER Lift’s crews can do it. However, 100% crack closure is not always achievable and no guarantees are made by anyone in the industry that optimum crack closure will occur. Once the lifting process is completed cosmetic repairs are performed to achieve the best cosmetic results possible.
