    Foundation piers are installed to stabilize and lift sinking buildings. Piering refers to the process of driving a steel pile into the ground which is then used to support the weight of the building and foundation. The loads are transfered to the piles with a bracket which is mounted to the foundation wall. The bracket and pile are referred to as a pier.

    Horizontal cracks are typically found in block foundation walls which are being pushed or bowed inward by lateral soil pressure. When horizontal cracks occur in concrete foundation walls it is generally not the result of inward bowing caused by soil pressure. The more likely cause is corrosion and expansion of horizontal reinforcing steel which is embedded in the concrete foundation wall.

    Inward leaning and diagonal cracking of a concrete foundation wall is typically caused by a failed connection between the floor framing and the foundation wall. The lack of connection allows the soil pressure to push the wall inward. If the foundation wall movement is excessive it should be moved back to as plumb a position as possible and stabilized. If the inward movement is not excessive then the foundation wall can be stabilized in the out of plumb position.
