The ground beneath many homes in Clarksville and surrounding Montgomery County has several features that make them vulnerable to foundation cracks and water penetration. At some point in their lives there is usually: clayey soil, underground caves, and deep bedrock that is more than 10 feet below the surface. These factors alone affect the stability of foundations in homes.

Deep Foundation Piering

Because the bedrock in the Clarksville area lies far underground, many foundation repair projects require extra-long piers — the point of resistance can be as deep as 60 feet in some areas of the city. Piers installed in different parts of the same foundation can even require dramatically different depths to reach bedrock since the area is also subject to underground caves and sinkholes. When restoring foundations with piers, it’s important to ground them properly and to use enough of them to truly support the structure.
