Pioneer of U.S. Foundation Repair Industry Outlines Five Step Process of Common Repairs As Season Starts

ADA, OK – PowerLift Foundation Repair, the largest independent repair contractor and a pioneer in the US foundation repair industry for over 30 years, continues its long-standing practice of releasing consumer tips for foundation repair and replacement. As the foundation industry enters its peak season in the Midwestern and Southeastern US, PowerLift provides a five (5) step- process for reliable foundation repairs and stabilization.

PowerLift Founder & President, Bill Bolin, said his firm has a relationship responsibility to publish guidelines on its website entitled “Choosing A Foundation Repair Specialist” and providing helpful consumer information to home owners about the various techniques and applications involved in the foundation repair and stabilization process.

“PowerLift has always been free with resourceful information about the foundation repair and system process because we believe an informed consumer makes good and informed decisions.” Bolin said. “Unfortunately, industry growth has brought some contractors who quickly come and go from the business and distribute some misinformation and untested processes that confuses many people at the critical time they are making repair decisions on their biggest investment – their home.”

The five (5) customary foundation repair processes are:

1). Hydraulically Driven Steel Piers: PowerLift provides a patented steel pier lifting system for perimeter foundations and interior floor slabs. Its interior slab system is the most effective assembly available to lift and stabilize floor slabs for residential and commercial structures.

2). Helical Piers: PowerLift is an industry leader in manufacturing and installation of helical piers for residential and commercial structures. Its patented helical piers, combined with its proprietary, synchronized, hydraulic-lifting system, is one of the best options available to lift and stabilize foundations on residential and commercial structures. As a result, PowerLift piers are recommended by architects, structural engineers and construction professionals across the US.

3). Pre-Construction: PowerLift installs helical piers to support new foundations in the pre-construction process for all types of residential, commercial and industrial buildings. It designs, manufactures and installs single and multiple-flight helical piers using a wide range of pile diameters to provide the required load capacity customized to each project.

4). Foam Injection: PowerLift pioneered concrete slab lifting with high density polyurethane foam injection, which provides a light-weight, yet expansive, and economical lifting option to stabilize settled and sinking concrete in many residential, commercial and industrial projects.

5). Mud Jacking: Is a process of mixing water with concrete that is pressure pumped to lift and stabilize settled concrete by filling voids beneath concrete slabs on residential, commercial and industrial properties.
