Need advice desperately! : ) We are buying a house that has differential settlement, caused by poor drainage and soil erosion.... Part of the house is on a slab, the part that has settled is on conventional. We are not sure if we should use the pier system (like ram jack uses) or to go with pressure grouting to raise the convential portion and support the house. We are leaning towards the pier system because they have a 10 yr. warranty. The other has only a 1 year warranty. Does anyone have any advice? We are so confused and unsure about how to spend our money on this project.
Any comments would be helpful. Thanks!
The pier system is the better solution. Pressure grout will only raise the house but will not change the subsoil the foundation is resting on. If it has already settled there is no guarantee it will not continue to do so unless the cause of the settlement is corrected.
