Push Pier Systems – Foundation Repair Piers
A Fast, Permanent, Warranted Solution That’s Possible Year-Round
There are a number of disturbing signs a homeowner may encounter that indicate a foundation settlement problem. And our Push Piers are the right answer.
Cracks on the exterior of your home, cracks in drywall on interior walls, doors and windows sticking or not opening, and/or your chimney pulling away from your home are all issues that point to the same problem – foundation settlement.
How Foundation Settlement Occurs
Foundation settlement problems are typically caused by changing soil conditions around and below your home. Wetting and softening of soils, drying and shrinking of soils, and soil layers compacting under added structural weight can all cause changing soil conditions which cause your home to shift, sink and settle.
My Foundation – Repair or Replace?
Some homeowners think replacing the foundation walls and footings is the solution to fix foundation settlement — without realizing how costly, messy and disruptive it is to your home, yard, landscaping, sidewalks, driveways and decks all need to be removed and replaced. However, because the real problem is with the compaction and expansion of the soil rather than with the foundation itself, the same problem is likely to occur again.
Other solutions such as concrete piers, are unable to reach deep, competent soils in order to support the weight of your home. Some can even add additional weight to the soil, making the problem worse.
Push Piers are the Answer!
To repair a foundation properly, Push Piers uses rugged steel pier sections, driven deep into the earth’s soil, to transfer the weight of your home onto competent, load-bearing strata or bedrock.
Not only does this foundation piling permanently stabilize your home’s foundation, it also provides the best opportunity to lift your home back to its original, level position.
