A Caisson is a cylinder shaft fabricated from concrete and placed underneath a building tier that dives down into bedrock. Caisson structures are essential when constructing anything on top of high moisture soil or weak soils.
Caissons work great to improve the structures strength especially for buildings which are dated and can benefit from stabilization.
Caissons are commonly used in underwater construction for bridges and piers, where a solid concrete Caisson may be sunk into place.
Caissons are also used to prevent water seepage into soils, similar to a dam, which will prevent the structure from decreased support due to moisture. There are several different types of Caissons:
After Caissons are constructed above ground they are then driven into the soil or mud until a secure and durable soil or bedrock is reached.

I had a great experience with Ram. He was so thorough with his inspection, and such an awesome personality. He had me take a look at the foundation, as well as explain exactly what was wrong, so I would have a better understanding of the estimate.
These guys are GREAT! Joe in the office is a dream. Warm, efficient and really works to accommodate your request. RON IS THE MAN.... I've used them as a Selling Agent and I called him back to help me at a different location (2 weeks later) as a Buying Agent..
They really are Foundation Experts. Had a couple companies recommend different things, although Built Strong addressed the concerns with the same recommendations other companies provided but also customized the repair and really took the time and resilience to address my homes unique and difficult problems.
