There is no way to tell someone that there is a typical foundation problem. Every single foundation repair project is unique in some way. DryZone crew members are used to installing push piers and helical piers, but the spacing between the piers is never exactly the same. This home had a massive crack in the exterior, it is clearly visible from more than 15 feet away. The size and location of the crack is taken into consideration when designing a system to fix the problem.
There were five helical piers used on this project. On a less severe crack that amount of piers might have spanned 20-30 feet. In this case they only spanned about half that distance. It was determined that the ground under the home was so loose that it wouldn't hold the weight of the home under normal conditions. The dirt on this end of the home is almost just for show. The majority of the home's weight is now supported by the heavy steel piers.
