Fortress Foundation Solutions Case Studies: Helical Piers Used On Stone Chimney

Monday, July 1st, 2019 by Kinsey Price


This home presented numerous challenges for Fortress Foundation Solutions. The chimney was beginning to settle away form the foundation. This caused a massive crack to form in the stone. Because of this crack, the home was more susceptible to infiltrating water. Fortress' sales representative, Scott Llewellyn, also noticed that the porch was beginning to settle.


Scott proposed numerous solutions to ensure that this homeowner’s issues were taken care of. Two helical piers were installed to address the settling chimney. They were placed at the base of the chimney to maximize support.
