Plate Anchors Designed and Engineered to Perform Approximately three years ago I decided it was time to take a good hard look at other piering systems on the market. We had worked with other piering products for approximately 10 years and we determined it was time to make a change and decided to go with ECP. I am very happy to say we have been very pleased with the product and the support we receive from the ECP staff. Dennis M. - Missouri As a licensed structural engineer, I m not going to hang my reputation on a building product with no pedigree. Earth Contact Products analyzes, designs, manufactures and proof tests their piers to such standards that my company can and does recommend them to our clients. Don R. Carter - Foundation Engineering Specialists, LLC 2

4 Signs of Foundation Failure Know the signs before it s too late. Inside of House Cracks in drywall Doors and windows that stick Cracks in floor or tile Misaligned doors and windows Trim or molding misaligned Torn or wrinkled wallpaper Outside of House Gaps around doors and windows Cracks in foundation Cracks in the bricks Fascia board pulling away Chimneys are tilting or leaning Garage Separation from door Wall rotating out Cracks in the brick Basement of House Walls leaning in or out Cracks in the poured or block walls Water leakage through cracks at base of walls Before After Raised 3 inches 3

5 Causes of Foundation Failure Why is it happening? Evaporation Hot and dry conditions may cause soil to pull away from the foundation. Settlement due to this foundation moisture imbalance could cause cracks to appear throughout the structure. Transpiration Tree roots could dehydrate the soil beneath a home causing soil shrinkage and settlement of the home. Plumbing Leaks Water from leaky plumbing is often a major contributor to foundation problems. Transpiration Evaporation Drainage Improper drainage will lead to excess moisture build up, which could erode or consolidate soils. Excessive moisture may cause upheaval or settlement. Poor Building Site Preparation Cut and fill situations, where soil is removed from part of the lot and stacked on another, must have proper soil stabilization before the structure is constructed; otherwise unexpected movements of the soil beneath the foundation may occur. Expansive Soil (Heaving Soil) Consolidating Soil Plumbing Leaks Poor Ground Preparation Cut and fill situations should be properly prepared before structure is started or it may result in improperly compacted soil beneath the foundation. Poor Soil Conditions Poor soil, organic components, debris, etc., may cause expansion or consolidation, which contribute to foundation failures. 4

6 Ineffective Foundation Repair Methods Drilled Concrete Pier Advantages: 1. Low cost of materials and rapid installation. Drilled Concrete Pier Disadvantages: 1. Gasoline powered augers are used to dig the holes. The soil removed from the borings disrupt shrubs and smother grass. 2. The average depth for residential drilled and cast concrete piers is anywhere from 6 to 8 feet below the surface. In many cases the problem soil exists beyond this depth so the repair is ineffective. 3. Your home must wait for at least one week for the concrete to cure properly; meanwhile there are unsafe open excavations around the house and piles of dirt on the lawn or driveway. 4. Because drilled concrete piers are founded within the same failing soil as the structure, drilled concrete piers will usually move and settle with the effects of changing moisture. 5. Due to the effects of skin friction on the sides of the concrete pier shaft, the concrete pier can be pulled downward as soil compaction and consolidation occurs. 6. Support from the drilled pier is derived from the soil surrounding and below the concrete pier. No universal diameter or depth is appropriate. Soil information is required to insure sufficient depth and capacity to support a given structure. This usually requires professional engineering input. Spread Footing Advantages: 1. Low cost of materials and low installation labor costs for the contractor. Spread Footing Disadvantages: 1. Concrete for the project is usually purchased in multipurpose premixed sacks at the home improvement center. 2. Packaged concrete mix does not have the sufficient bearing strength required for long term structural support. 3. Your home must wait for at least one week for the concrete to cure properly; meanwhile there are unsafe open excavations around the house. 4. Spread footings rest upon the same failing soil as the structure. Because of this, spread footings continually move and settle from the effects of changing moisture and soil consolidation. 5. This instability of the shallow soils requires that the spread footings be adjusted or shimmed at least annually. The contractor may adjust the footings under warranty, but the homeowner is stuck paying for repairs to the interior and exterior cracks or gaps. 6. Many spread footing installers are new to the business and use inexperienced labor. The turnover for these businesses is high due to the high volume of adjustments and complaints. Concrete Pressed Pilings Advantages: 1. The small precast concrete cylinders are a very, very cheap product. 2. The contractor has minimal investment in installation equipment. 3. Inexpensive unskilled laborers usually perform the installation. 4. The product is rapidly installed so the project is quickly finished. 5. Minimal disturbance to lawn and shrubs occurs during installation. Concrete Pressed Pilings Disadvantages: 1. If the concrete cylinder fractures under the installation force, it cannot be inspected or removed. 2. Skin friction from the soil on the sides of the cylinders dramatically increases with depth. This limits the installation depth to perhaps 5 to 7 feet, which may not be below the problem soil. 3. There is no equipment used to guide and align the cylinders vertically under the foundation. If the pressed pile is not installed vertically, lateral forces tend to separate the individual cylinders. 4. Because concrete pressed pilings are founded within the same failing soil as the structure, they will usually move and settle with the effects of changing moisture. 5. Due to the skin friction on the sides of the concrete pressed piling, the concrete cylinders can be pulled downward as soil compaction and consolidation occurs. 5. This instability of the shallow soils requires that the pressed pilings be adjusted or shimmed at least annually. The contractor may adjust the pilings, but the homeowner is stuck with the expense of repairing the interior and exterior cracks and/or gaps. 6. Many concrete pressed pilings installers are new to the business and use inexperienced labor. The turnover for this business is high due to the high number of adjustments and complaints that generate no revenue for the contractor. 5

7 Long Term Foundation Repair ECP Steel Pier Advantages: 1. ECP Steel Piers and specialized tools have been designed and engineered to perform. The products are manufactured in a state of the art, high tech facility using mill certified materials and welded by certified welders. 2. ECP Steel Piers have been tested and proven in all soil types to provide stability and performance. 3. Each ECP Steel Pier is individually load tested on site to insure a higher load capacity than required to support the structure. This Factor of Safety insures that the settlement problems are over and the likelihood of returns for adjustments is highly unlikely. 4. All installing contractors have been trained and approved to install ECP Steel Piers. 5. Skilled technicians perform the installation, testing and restoration operations. 6. No large equipment is necessary to install the ECP Steel Pier so there is minimal impact on the lawn and shrubs. 7. ECP Steel Piers are specifically designed to eliminate as much skin friction as possible, thus down drag from consolidating soil is not a problem and does not affect the pier. 8. ECP Steel Piers have been installed to depths exceeding 120 feet to a verified suitable bearing stratum. 9. Installers document the project by recording the installation force on the pier, the depths to verified bearing and the final pier working loads after restoration. 10. ECP training dictates that an even and gentle restoration process be used to lift the structure. Large groups of piers, or all of the piers, are gently loaded simultaneously; thus insuring the minimum amount of stress is applied to the structure during restoration. 11. No soil need be stacked and hauled from the site. The small excavations required to install the ECP Steel Pier are filled with the removed soil. 12. No waiting a week for concrete to cure. Once all ECP Steel Piers have been installed, restoration begins immediately. Most projects are finished in a few days. 6

8 ECP Steel Piers Designed and Engineered to Perform! Drive Cylinder Drive Stand Foundation Stem Wall Starter Pier Pipe Foundation Footing Installed Pier & Bracket ECP Steel Pier Systems can be installed in either interior or exterior locations. Each ECP Steel Pier System provides a two-stage system of driving the manufacturer piers to a tested and verified bearing stratum then, using hydraulics, recovers lost elevation bringing the structure to the desired elevation. ECP Steel Piers stop settlement and provide structural lift. They can close cracks in masonry and restore other flaws such as separations at door and window frames caused by the settlement. Specific information involving the original structural design, current foundation condition, soil characteristics and site survey must be considered for the final repair plan. Designing a restoration project should involve professional engineering input. 7

Friction Reduction Collar Load Bearing Strata ECP STEEL PIERS The ECP Steel Pier is an end-bearing pier that does not rely upon nor require skin friction to produce support. Each pier is field load tested after it is installed. The piers are able to develop a factor of safety because the piers are installed and load tested individually using the maximum weight of the structure as the reaction force. The ability of the system to develop significant factors of safety comes from the different methods used between pier installation and load transfer during restoration. ECP Steel Piers are driven individually and the entire structure works as the reaction; but during load transfer hydraulic jacks are placed at multiple locations thus reducing the load on each pier to only the design working load. 11

14 Plate Anchors Plate Anchor Galvanized Wall Plate Galvanized Plate Anchor Inside Wall Plate Basement Floor Earth The ECP Plate Anchors are designed to stabilize cracking and bowed foundation walls. The inside wall plate is fabricated from 10 gauge hot-rolled steel and measures 12 X 26. The wall plate has two embossed reinforcing ribs for additional stiffness, plus a 4 square, 10-gauge square washer is included for added strength. The Plate Anchor, fabricated from two 10-gauge plates, has four reinforcing ribs and four cleats providing approximately 430 square inches of soil bearing surface. The wall plate and Plate Anchor are connected by a 3/4 diameter continuously threaded tie rod and secured with nuts. The Plate Anchor assembly is hot dipped galvanized for protection against corrosion. The ECP Plate Anchors are the most economical method for providing supplemental lateral force to help stabilize bowed and cracked walls. This installation can be quickly installed using handheld equipment and requires minimal excavation or disturbance to the yard. Installation of Plate Anchors Locate and mark all utility lines in and around area. Measure and mark placements for Plate Anchors. Remove sod patch and prepare excavation to accept the Anchor Plate. Drill 1 diameter hole through wall. Install 3/4 diameter tie rod from wall to the excavation. Secure Plate Anchor to tie rod with nut.
