Trench Wall Foundation


Room addition or enclosed porch settling


Structure built on deck or concrete patio with no foundation frost wall.


Excavate outside the effected area to 42 inches below grade. Shore and raise to a compromise level. Install reinforcing steel (rebar), form and pour a concrete frost foundation.

The Dave Pate Advantage:

The repair is engineered and inspected by the local building department. It becomes more cost effective to install a frost foundation under the existing structure than to demolish and rebuild.
