Paramount Workers will lay down plywood to protect your yard and move any plants from the work area if needed.
We will break through concrete, or other paved surfaces, and hand dig holes three to four feet deep. Unless your home requires interior pilings, no access to the inside of your home will be required for this phase.
It will be necessary for us to have access to several electrical outlets (3-4) during this phase
of repair. The outlets need to be on separate circuits, so access to the inside of the home is also necessary at this time.
The concrete pilings are pressed into the ground at each predetermined location and subsequent piling segments are driven to the required depth and resistance.
A piling cap is then positioned on top of the last pile segment. Concrete blocks are then placed between the piling cap and the bottom of the foundation beam.

The next phase is the “raising” of the foundation. We raise the low parts of the foundation (in the areas where the pilings are installed) to as near their original elevations as possible.
Jacks are placed on top of the pilings. Eric Rodriguez personally directs the raising while carefully monitoring the reactions of the structure. When the raising is complete, steel spacers are inserted on concrete blocks to support the building.
But we don’t stop there. Each hole is then refilled with soil, and concrete breakthroughs are patched. Plants are replanted, and the yard, walks and drives are cleaned, raked , swept and washed. We’re not finished until Eric personally verifies the entire area is clean.
From start to finish, the entire process usually takes from one to three days, excluding weekends and holidays.
