Most property owners need structural repair due to soil-related issues and moisture content. Drought-like conditions affects foundations because it causes the soil to shrink under the foundation. As a result, the soil expands and contracts, creating settlement in the foundation. Our team of experts, including civil engineers, will examine the type of foundation you have and how much damage there is. We will determine the type of foundation method that is needed for your old or new construction foundation repair projects.

Types of Structural Repair & Structural Engineering in West Virginia

To stabilize and support retaining walls and settling foundation, we use underpinning, piling and shoring solutions.

  • Piling Solutions: Our piling solutions include helical and augercast piles. Piles are an engineering solution that provides quality assurance. They are reliable and residual to many soils. They can resist both axial compression and tension loads.
  • Underpinning: Underpinning involves transferring the load from the structure to a deep foundation element bearing to more stable soil. Pier can be installed from the inside or outside of the structure. They can be loaded immediately after installation.
  • Shoring: Our shoring solutions include soil nailing and plate anchors. Soil nailing is designed to secure and stabilize collapsing retaining walls, buildings, garages or other structures. Plate anchors consist of inside wall plate made from 10 gauge hot-rolled steel. The plate has two reinforcing ribs, a 4" square and a 10-gauge square washer for extra strength and support. These components help stabilize cracking and bowed foundation walls.
