After our team inspects your foundation, and find that it is need of repair, we uses underpinning products such steel piers, helical piers and slab piers. We also offer new construction piering.
Steel piers are an end-bearing which means that they do not rely on any type of friction to produce the support that it is installed for. Each pier is load tested before installation to ensure that they meet the standards and will produce the support needed for the repair. These piers are driven deep through the unstable soil layers until they reach a more solid layer. Then the structure is hydraulically lifted onto the piers to stabile and level the structure.
Helical piers are used for foundation repair when light structural loads, unstable rock basements or very deep load bearing layers are present.
