In Altoona Washington is a house called Dahlia, named after the woman for whom it was built. The young groom built Dahlia to prove to his new father in law that he could provide for his new bride. Dahlia was sitting right on the ground. We used 16 ten inch I-beams alongside the floor joists to lift, level and give her a new foundation!!
This ten year old structure in Hammond, Oregon was the victim of poor filling practices where the builder went in and filled over stumps, roots, and marsh. We used a Helical Pull Down Micro Pile for added corrosion resistance as well as increased lateral stability to loose soils. Transferring the load to Underpinning Brackets.
Bergeman Construction had 48 hours to shore up this building before the City of Astoria was going to demolish it. We were able to shore up the house in the allotted time and save the structure!
This house foundation is a result of "commercial property" excavating without any proper soil samples or stabilization. Once they started digging behind his house it began to slide down towards the area that was being "Dug Out".

Being entrusted with the irreplaceable, one hundred year old Flavel Carriage house was a great honor and a compliment to Bergeman Construction. When Clatsop County Historical Society needed a foundation upgrade and replacement, they called Bergeman Construction.

House lifts/foundation upgrade
Here is a beautiful old victorian that was in desperate need of a new foundation. The original foundation on which it sat was comprised of a mere two layers of brick.
Here you can see under the house which is supported by steel beams and crib stacks as well as post brackets seated on helical pile. This enabled us to excavate so that we could transform the basement into a more spacious living area.
This is an outside shot which shows the exteriror support system as well as the concrete forms which conforms to the elaborate footprint of the structure.
In this image we can see the original brick foundation wall.
