Foundation Repair | Window Separation Flexing

In this video you see the effects of foundation movement on a window. The corner foundation of the house has settled enough over time to cause the wall to lean away from the window. This pulls the brick and separates the window/brick transition. The video starts during the process of pushing a pier under the corner of the affected foundation. This process uses a hydraulic press to push up against the bottom of the slab to push a pier into the ground. This pushing causes the foundation to flex back up to it’s original location. The crack opens back up due the releasing of the hydraulic ram that causes the foundation to lose it’s flex, thus causing the wall to go back to leaning. While we will eventually leave the foundation at it’s original level after we finish pushing the pier, this is a great example to show just how much a foundation flex can move the structure.
