Cantsink helical piers keep your home stable in the storm surge

Posted in News

The damaging effects of heavy rainfall and downed trees on home foundations and other structures are not immediately apparent. Cantsink helical piers keep your home stable in the storm surge.

With so many heavy storms impacting Metro Atlanta in 2022, homeowners may discover conditions under their houses that have compromised foundation stability. Sudden downpours create unanticipated runoff that inundate soil and cause unexpected pressure variations. Water patterns unknown to builders during construction wash away protective layers of soil around or under the house, which allows damaging water intrusion.

Hurricanes Irma and Nate doused the region in recent weeks with abnormal quantities of rain: downing trees, flooding streets and loading groundwater to full capacity. These conditions may be changing ground conditions under your house in ways you don’t immediately notice.

As water in the soil shifts its positioning or hidden tree roots deteriorate after the tree falls, changes in pressure could cause home foundations to sink, undermining structural integrity.
Subtle changes in alignment can signal settling has begun. Vertical wall cracks, doors and windows that stick or sagging floors indicate your home is not level. Simply filling cracks with mortar or cement won’t solve these issues. With support from Cantsink’s ICC-certified helical piers, however, foundation settling is halted for the life of the home, ensuring your home stays stable in the storm surge.
