Foundation Repair Methods

Steel piers
Steel piers are an excellent choice for most foundation repair issues which are either caused by organic soils, swelling clays, poor compaction, improper footer embedment, and erosion or run off. Steel piers, also known as push piers, mini-piles or resistance piers are an economical and permanent solution for your home. Steel piers are an end bearing pier that does not rely on the soils skin friction to provide support. These underpinning piers are able to develop a factor of safety due to the fact that they are individually load test during installation.

If your home need foundation repair work done contact a qualified foundation expert and a foundation engineer to specify the type, location and capacities of the steel piers needed on your home.

Helical Piers
Helical piers have been in use for the stabilization of foundations since the early 1800’s. The original helical pier was designed as a wooden shaft with an iron helix for use in lighthouse foundations. Helical piers have the capacity and in certain soils the advantages to support your home for years to come. They are quick to install and are an excellent choice for foundation repair and stabilization where limestone and/or load bearing strata are not easily accessible.

Helical piles or piers can also be used in new home construction in the place of old fashioned concrete piers. They offer an economical choice of underpinning and allow for tight construction schedules to be kept. If your home need foundation repair work or you are building a new home done contact a qualified foundation expert and a foundation engineer to specify the type, location and capacities of the helical piers needed on your home.
