Using Steel Push Piers to Repair Your Foundation

Steel push piers are among the most commonly use techniques to resolve certain foundation problems because they are less intrusive. A hydraulic system is used to drive the pier into the ground.

What to Expect with a Push Pier Installation

Our crews will dig a hole near the foundation at each spot that the pier is going to be installed. L-shaped brackets are then attached to the bottom of the footing. The piers are pushed through the load bearing soil which are also called piles. This process will shift the load of the unstable soil onto the piers. This process will be performed at various points around the homes foundation. Once all of the piers have been installed the holes are filled, covering the installed brackets.

Now that the foundation is stabilized it will be ready for any cosmetic repairs and/or waterproofing.

Horizontal Foundation Fatigue

Sometimes the walls of the basement get a tremendous amount of pressure from the expanding soil and extreme temperature changes. The pressure on the basement walls can cause horizontal cracks and bowing walls. What is needed to fix this problem is first to remove the pressure on the wall, then stabilize it and lastly repair the crack. Using an innovative product called the Reinforcer can fix the problem without the need for invasive tools or procedures.

The Reinforcer is designed to counteract the outside pressure on the wall by taking the tension force that the concrete can’t handle. This will make the wall stronger and help to eliminate shifting.
