Foundation Bracket Installation Utah

What's in a bracket system?

You may see examples from other companies that use a few large bracket installation to support a foundation. This would be just fine as long as the foundation is in perfect condition. However, in older buildings especially, the concrete can have some degradation and be more prone to cracking. This is one reason why Interwest uses a whole system of foundation piers, because it just works better together. Think about it: would you rather have your foundation sitting on a few big pillars, or a spread-out system of solid piers placed widely across the entire foundation? Through years of experience, we have found and use what will give our clients the best Utah foundation repair, results over time. Here are a few supporting facts.

It's About Pressure

If you look at this bracket installation, they drive and place what is known as a helical pier. After the helical pier is drilled into the ground, then the bracket is installed. The problem with this process is that the pressure of the foundation isn’t on the bracket at the time of installation. In this scenario, the weight of the house addition would then settle the foundation onto the pier, which could lead to further settling or cracking that may or may not even be visible after the fact. With Utah helical piers, it isn’t tested as it is installed, which is a disadvantage. At Interwest when we use the push pier system, also known as resistance piers, we first install the brackets securely to the foundation. After the brackets are secure, then we use our sophisticated lifting system to lift each of the brackets. You can see our successful foundation lifting bracket system in a recent project in Nephi. There are pictures of our heavy duty brackets throughout the website. The push pier system and helical pier system each have advantages for different building structures and soil compositions. We can take a look at your building to determine the best foundation bracket installation system when you get your free estimate.

Why Custom Fitting Brackets is Important

Earlier in my construction career I learned how important a tight fit is to the structural stability of a system. When we were fitting wood supports onto wood platforms (for the live theater stage), some less experienced workers would screw these supports in just enough to appear ‘in place’. However, after a short time, the horizontal stability of the platform was very weak because the supporting brackets were loose and had give when under pressure. After applying torque pressure to the screws and bolts, the surface area friction of the two boards against each other provided the much needed stability to the entire system. This same physical principle is applied to our bracket system. We first custom fit the brackets to the foundation, and then provide the push pier support to lift the entire foundation together.

I am very pleased with my experience with Interwest. I purchased an older home and suspected voids under the concrete slabs. I started asking around for referrals for a good lift company, and one of the companies I was referred to ended up referring me to Interwest. They referred me to Interwest for two reasons. Th...

Interwest Concrete lifting recently leveled my slab driveway that had sunk in a number of places over the years. They responded immediately to my request for a quote and Troy was very knowledgeable regarding what it would take to make the repairs. I was impressed with their follow up and follow through. I had reache...

We had some sunken concrete sections at the back of house as well as the possibility of some voids from settling under the slab.The quote was clear and accurate for the leveling work. The extra cost to fill the voids (if I chose to proceed) was well as clearly detailed. After finishing the leveling, they drilled a te...

We had walls and a ceiling that were cracking as our house sank. I was really impressed with every worker who came to work on our project. They were very polite and worked non-stop, efficiently and fast. I was amazed how one gaping wall crack closed up to just a line as the foundation was lifted. Everything wa...

Our HOA had numerous areas of uneven sidewalks caused by settling. Since many of the residents are elderly the board wanted the problem resolved in the quickest and most cost effective way. Interwest Concrete Lifting had the most competitive bid and scheduled the work within a few days. The crew was hard working and kn...

I rarely write reviews but just wanted to say that I was very impressed with Troy from Interwest. He came out to give us an estimate for foundation repair and also some concrete we were thinking about lifting. I previously had two different companies give us estimates that were so drastically different that I wasn't su...

We have had major settling in our driveway and patio, needing it to be repaired/lifted. After calling a few companies, we decided to use Interwest. They were prompt and very fair with pricing. The tech that came out was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. We were very pleased with the work done. The followin...

This is my second time using this company to lift sections in a driveway. They always arrive promptly and complete the work exactly as the estimate shows. The last repair they provide an estimate on a Friday and the work was completed that Monday at a fair price. Strongly recommended
— Kevin Householder, Posted April 16th 2017 on Google Local
They were really honest when they came to check my back patio. I actually didn't need any of their services as they explained to me that it was still stable and just a cosmetic issue. I appreciate companies who care more about their virtues than money. I had four other companies come out and they all wanted to charge $...

They did a great job taking care of several issues I had with sinking concrete.
— Kurt Petersen, Posted October 9th 2015 on Facebook
I had a huge problem with my porch sinking. It was complicated because it wraps around my house and supports a roof too. I had bids from contractors who wanted to tear everything out, including all my landscaping, and start over and charge a small fortune. These guys did a fabulous job, as thorough as possible for a...

I called them to have someone come out and take a look at a Front Porch step that had separated from the sidewalk. The guy who came out was Troy, He was really nice, he explained what had happened to cause this, he also said that we would be better off doing something else than paying to have him lift it. He was r...

I called this company to look at my foundation. They were very responsive. In fact, the guy who came out to provide a bid (Troy) even swung by my office to give me a ride to the project site (because my car was in the shop). Troy was very detailed and got down in the dirt (literally, with a shovel) to accurately diagn...
