When Dana B. of Ashland, OR started to notice that her rental home was sinking, she went in search of a company to help her. The sinking was starting to cause the side wall to crack. While looking through the phone book, she saw an ad for Terrafirma Foundation Systems.
Within a few weeks Dana met with Terrafirma Sales Representative Patrick Dunn. Patrick recommended that she have Push Piers installed in the foundation. This system uses foundation brackets secured against the existing footing and pier sections driven in hydraulically to lift and secure the structure. The office soon sent Wes Johnston out to the home to install the piers.
Now that the piers have been installed, Dana can rent out her property without any worry.
Local Ashland, OR resident Alice F. suspected that her crawlspace needed to be worked on. There was debris and moisture. She decided to take a look through the phone book for a company that can help her. She soon came across an ad for Terrafirma Foundation Systems.
Terrafirma sent their sales representative Casey Moore out to her home. Casey recommended that the install the CleanSpace system. This system is installed on the walls and floor of the crawlspace to prevent and water vapor or humidity from seeping through. They also installed a Crawl-o-Sphere which is an additional protection for keeping the crawlspace dry. Finally they installed the Everlast Vent Cover and Door to cover up the vents, preventing further moisture, and making access to the crawlspace easier.
With her crawlspace now protected by the CleanSpace System, Alice no longer worries about any moisture getting into her crawlspace.
When Ashland, OR native Barbara H, started noticing water leaking into her finished basement she started asking around to her friends about who can help. A local engineer recommended that she call Terrafirma Foundation Systems.
Barbara contacted the office to find out what they could do to help her. They sent out sales rep Casey Moore to her home. After a full inspection of her basement, Casey recommended a few of their products. The first product he recommended a Super Sump Pump. This sump pump is a 1/3 horsepower cast iron pump that is capable of pumping out 2,500 gallons of water per hour out of your basement. Along with the sump pump, it was recommended that the CleanSpace Wall System and a WaterGuard drainage system. The CleanSace Wall System would prevent moisture from coming through the walls and would drain it to the WaterGuard System. The WaterGuard is a channel that would direct the water into the pit where the sump pumps are located.
Now, with these products installed, Barbara can go on knowing that he basement is prevented from any water or moisture from coming in.
Soil settlement is hard to detect. There are some major indicators though. If you see cracks in the dry wall, cracking by windows and doors, or if those windows and doors don't quite open or shut easily, this might indicate that your foundation has settled. The Starr's home in Ashland, Oregon shows all these signs, not just in one corner of the home, but all along the front end indicating some serious settlement. Stabilization was needed immediately via hydraulic push piers.
13 piers were installed spanning the entire front end of the home. Because all piers are hooked hydraulically to the same unit, even pressure can be applied to every pier point. By evenly distributing the weight of the home on the push pier brackets, we can ensure the safest stabilization and potential lift the the home foundation. For heavier structures hydraulic piers are the best option and have been installed in all different types of soils throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.
