HOUSTON (PRWEB) November 21, 2019
Olshan Foundation Solutions, a premier foundation repair company since 1933 has secured exclusive rights to install a newly patented technology that reduces the cost and complexity of repairing sunken concrete tilt wall buildings.
Sunken or settling tilt wall buildings not only pose a direct safety risk, but may also lead to other dangerous and expensive structural repairs and internal system failures. Before Olshan brought this newly invented repair method to market, the best that property owners and engineers could hope for was to stabilize sunken tilt walls in place. Until now, there was no way to both stop the settlement and safely lift the wall back to its original elevation.
“In the past, tilt wall repairs were incomplete and stop-gap at best,” said Chris Cates, Olshan’s General Manager. “This patented and innovative approach brings owners of tilt wall structures an unprecedented level of value and reliability. We will be able to help business owners save time and money by enabling them to avoid the cost and disruption of full replacement and providing a solution that brings the building back to its original construction elevation in a safe manner”.
Historically, tilt walls have been subject to the same forces that cause conventional home and business foundations to settle and lose their load-bearing capability. All kinds of weather, site, and soil conditions - plus variances in original construction practices - can compromise the durability of tilt walls. Older repair methods, such as drilled piers or separate installed piles, are often subject to lateral shifting and subsequent structural failure. Olshan’s patented repair technology (US Patent #10,428,516 B2) eliminates these risks in one integrated process.
“We are excited to bring this valuable new capability to commercial foundation repair customers,” said Chris Cates, General Manager of Olshan Foundation Solutions. “We are excited to partner with engineers, their customers and commercial property owners to dramatically extend the life and value of their tilt wall properties with greater safety and less risk.”
