FOUNDATIONS - HOUSE LEVELING - EARTH ANCHORS
In Altoona Washington is a house called Dahlia, named after the woman for whom it was built. The young groom build Dahlia to prove to his new father in law that he could provide for his new bride. Dahlia was sitting right on the ground. We used 16 ten inch I-beams alongside the floor joists to lift, level and give her a new foundation!!
This ten year old structure in Hammond, Oregon was the victim of poor filling practices where the builder went in and filled over stumps, roots, and marsh. We used a Helical Pull Down Micro Pile for added corrosion resistance as well as increased lateral stability to loose soils. Transferring the load to Underpinning Brackets.
Bergeman Construction had 48 hours to shore up this building before the City of Astoria was going to demolish it.
Note how the above pictures shows that the existing pier is leaning almost 40 degrees!
We were able to shore up the house in the allotted time and save the structure!

This house foundation is a result of "commerical property" excavating with out any proper soil samples or stablization. Once they started digging behind his house it began to slide down towards the area that was being "Dug Out".
