Settled Brick Home
We are currently working on a brick addition on a home in Walnut Creek. The foundation settlement seemed to be caused by the weight of the structure on a spread footing built on poorly compacted fill.
The area has settled over three inches in a span of about sixteen feet. Because of the weight of the structure, the Earth Contact Products Model 350 steel resistance pier was used for the added loads. With a total of thirteen piers installed to an average depth of thirty feet and individually load tested to 35,700 lbs, it should be leveled within the week.
We are happy to restore the strength and stability of this Walnut Creek home. We’re sure the homeowners are happy, too.
