Here is the crack that was worrying the homeowner and prompted him to call us. It is a pretty large crack that starts at the corner of the door and ran all of the way to the top of the wall. Cracks like these are some of the most common types of cracks that we deal with, as well as cracks that come off the top of windows.
Here are the two push piers that were installed at this home. You can see how they are attached to the foundation, as well as you can see part of the piering under the top plate. While it does not seem like much, these two piers can, and did, make a huge difference on the crack.
This is what the area looked like after the work had been done and the piers were installed. There is not much to this picture, but you can see that our crews are very careful with their clean up. They had to make sure the area was as level as possible, before the concrete was poured.
Here is the final product! While it has not dried yet, this is what it looked like when our crew was finished! Good as new!
You can see just how big of a difference the two push piers made on this home! While it may not look extremely significant, some of the "crack" is actually just the cracked and chipped paint that was caused by the initial crack.
