Our system design team analyzed the flaws in other methods and found that failures occur mostly in soil native to the Midwest, including Iowa. The Concrete Pad and Piling system designs that other companies use simply float in the weak soil below your home–in the same soil that has already proven to be unstable! When we designed our system, we built it specifically for homes and soil conditions right here in Iowa. The core of our system is the industry's most advanced pier bracket. Our bracket cradles your home with multiple points of attachment for added structural stability. Our unique pier bracket anchors your foundation to load-bearing strata or bedrock via our thick walled pier pipe.
HouseHolder® Pier System
The right system for your home will work only if it is correctly installed and provided by a professional company like ours. And that's why we present this system that uses a specialized method, allowing a unified lift once installed. This means that our installation crew supports the entire foundation and lifts each section as one. This ensures that your house is properly supported during installation, the load is evenly distributed across all of the piers, and your foundation is strengthened and stabilized.
We engineered a system that forgoes one-size-fits-all methodology in favor of one custom designed for each individual job. Our Estimator, who has been trained and certified by Iowa Licensed Structural Engineers, will meet with you, analyze your problem, and develop the best configuration to permanently solve your problem. Then our crew, which has been certified by the same Professional Engineers, will install the system to engineered specifications. You can be sure that the HouseHolder® Pier System will permanently stop settlement backed by our Better-than-Lifetme Guarantee®.
Wall Shield™ Wall Crack Repair
We also repair foundation wall cracks. These can be caused by settlement, lateral wall movement can happen to virtually all poured concrete walls. As concrete cures over time, cracks are almost inevitable. When a crack opens, moisture or water may begin to permeate the wall. We developed the Wall Shield™ system - a complete solution to fix wall cracks.
