Panhandle Foundation Repair is the best! After having other companies out to my home I found PFR to be the most detailed about my foundation issue. They saved me thousands in unnecessary repairs. Thanks!

Our Foundation Repair Process
The first operation you will see will be the site preparation. Panhandle workers will lay down plywood to protect your yard and then we will move any plants from the work area.
We will break through concrete, or any other paved surfaces, and hand dig access holes that are three to four feet deep. These holes are about the size of a common door mat.
Unless your job requires interior pilings, we require no access to the inside of your home at this time.
The next operation begins with the driving of the pilings. It will be necessary for us to have access to several electrical outlets (3 or 4) during this operation. The outlets need to be on separate circuits. We need access to the in side of the house at this time.
Works then press concrete pilings into the ground at each predetermined location then drive piling segments (with steel locking pins through the center of each concrete piling) to the required depth and resistance.
We position a piling cap on top of the last pile segment then place concrete blocks between the piling cap and the bottom of the foundation beam. It is time for the final phase.
The next step is the raising of the foundation. We raise the low parts of the foundation (for areas around installed piling) to as near their original elevations as possible.
Placing jacks on top of the pilings, an experienced Panhandle technician directs the raising while carefully monitoring the reactions of the structure. When finished raising, we inserted steel spacers on concrete blocks to support the building.
After raising the foundation, the final step is cleanup. Each hole is refilled with soil and concrete breakthroughs are patched. Plants are then replanted and the yard, walks and drives are cleaned, raked, swept and washed. The entire process, from start to finish, usually takes from one to three days, excluding weekends and holidays.
