You may go day to day without ever thinking twice about how your home is standing and why it never collapses; the reason, though, is what we call the foundation. Although it may not seem relevant, the foundation of your home plays a critical part in its structure and stability overall.
By distributing the weight of your home safely and evenly to the ground beneath it, your home is protected from excessive shifting and settling. Although the foundation of your home does keep it safe, over time, many homeowners may notice that bricks and concrete crack, while their windows, doors, and walls begin to bow. If you see signs of this happening in your home, it’s time to call A-1 Concrete Leveling for a foundation repair right away.
Reliable Foundation Repair by Qualified Technicians
When you work with A-1 Concrete Leveling of Nashville, we will come to your house, provide you with an estimate, and assess the extent of the damage concerning your foundation. We will take our time to pay attention to all the details, making note of the age of your property, its value, and any necessary cosmetic touch-ups required. Our goal is to ensure our repair stops your problems and provides you with the reassurance you deserve to know your foundation is safe.
The more cosmetic work you have had done to conceal cracks and damages caused by foundation problems, the harder it is for us to tell what the real issue is; never temporarily fix your foundation when you can have the expert solution you need from us.
Keeping Your Home Safe
By looking for a variety of structural failures, we are able to detect the source of your problem and provide you with the proper foundation repair you need. Using industry-leading methods to fix your vertical settlement, we can customize your foundation repair through the implementation of helical piers and conventional quad power piers. Through these methods, we can help repair not only your foundation but strengthen your walls and the overall structure of your entire home as well.
This application is mostly used with lighter structures such as steps and porches. It can also be implemented when the soil is difficult to work with. Made of two different components, the steel shaft and the steel bracket resemble a large screw-like tool. This drill is driven into the ground to transfer the weight of the structure to a stronger more suitable, deeper soil.
As the most commonly used method of foundation repair, hydraulically driven steel piers are the most effective way to stabilize existing foundations. Made up of steel brackets and multiple steel pipe sections, the pier is placed under concrete serving as a cradle. Inserted through a transfer type of sleeve, the pipe is driven to the point of refusal, transferring the support from the ground beneath. Once all piers are in place, the structure concern can be moved to a new area of ground.
With these methods, combined with pressure and hydraulic tactics, we can provide you with a more stable foundation, stronger walls, and the peace of mind you need to know your home is safe. Call us today for your foundation repair free estimate!

At Stabil-Loc Foundation Piering Systems, we use of our patented piers for virtually any sinking structural problem. What separates us from any other pier systems is the unique method of installation and how our system was designed. Our engineers at the University of Arkansas created a new method and started from scratch using a piering system that places the bracket directly underneath your home and the pile (the pole of the pier) attached to the center of the bracket. This gives a much stronger and durable system that no other pier can provide- withstanding any shifts of soil conditions or pressure. Our piers are also designed to drill deeper than any other system, resting the structure’s weight on bedrock or load-bearing strata (the most stable of earth’s crust layers).

The Difference of Stabil-Loc Piers
Using traditional brackets along the side of your structure proved to be an inadequate technique for foundation repair. Lifting the structure with piers and brackets at an angle or offset to the side of your home would eventually bend, break, or improperly raise the foundation. In the diagram to the left (or above on mobile) you can see the instability of other systems that lead to foundation failure. Your investment in a Stabil-Loc Foundation Pier system is reliable using linear lifting instead of angular, offset, or using concrete materials. This provides a more stable and natural method of leveling your foundation.
How Our Pier System Works
The Stabil-Loc Foundation Pier System is installed directly under the concrete or mason wall that needs to be lifted or stabilized. The pier is driven deep within the earth into bedrock or stable, load-bearing strata which is verifiable with load-testing. As the home is lifted, a mechanism allows part of the piering system that makes contact with the bottom of the footer to be rotated to prevent breaking the footer- a feature not found anywhere else. Installation can be done quickly, and with minimal excavation required. This system is designed to restabilize the sinking structure by shifting the weight of the home off of the foundation and onto themselves, redirecting the load to more reliable earth layers underground.
