Proudly Serving SC & GA Including - Columbia, Greenville, Augusta and Charleston
Suzan M. moved into her Irmo, SC home a few years ago after living in an apartment for quite some time. She dreamed of spending her retirement years tending to a garden and feeling comfortable in her very own home. Finally getting to have the comfort and privacy she always wanted was interrupted by the growing cracks in her foundation. She decided to do a quick search on the internet to investigate these cracks. Suzan found Cantey Foundation Specialists website and saw that they offered free no obligation inspections. She knew it would give her more peace of mind to have an expert come out and take a look at the problem areas. System Design Specialist Brandon Privette came out for the scheduled appointment and did an inspection on the areas giving Suzan concern. Brandon later explained to Suzan that her foundation was beginning to settle due to movement of the soil. He told her that the best solution would be Cantey's Push Pier system. The Push Piers would be installed deep enough to reach competent spoil underneath the footing. The bracket of the Push Piers is then installed below the foundation's footing. Then hydraulics are used to drive the piers causing the weight of the home to be transferred through the pier to the competent soil below. This would then raise the home back to its original position. Suzan would have the proper lift and stabilization she needed to feel comfortable in her home. Production Team Leader Aubrey McJunkin, Production Team Member Oscar Mota, and Production Team Member Francisco Lopez came out and effectively installed the Push Pier system. Suzan is now happy and comfortable in her newly lifted and stabilized home thanks to the Cantey team.
