Concrete Piers

If a building’s soil conditions allow, concrete piers are an excellent option to redistribute the foundations load into stable and compact soils. Concrete pier supports are a relatively cost effective application for stabilizing your building long-term.

 

How Concrete Piers Work

1. Expose Footer
Approximately 2ft x 2ft holes are dug at every 6ft to expose the footer and insert the 12inch x 6inch concrete pilings.
2. Hydraulic Jack
Insert a hydraulic jack that is connected to an electric pump to push the piers down through the soft soil media.
3. Push Piers to Depth
Using the hydraulic pump, the piers are pushed to the point of refusal (where the soil is dense enough to support the foundation and the pier cannot push down any further.)
*To prevent the piers from slipping, we use rebar inserts to connect them.
4. Place Concrete Cap
The concrete cap adapts the single concrete pier column to two primary support pilings. One piling is placed on one side, while the hydraulic jack is used to get the concrete pier to its final position.
5. Final Adjustments
Once the Concrete Pier has been placed to final depth, we use galvanized steel shims to make the final adjustments and distribute the foundation load onto the pier.
6. Foundation is Supported
The concrete piers are placed at every 6-8ft to get the foundation on solid footing.

Steel Foundation Piers

Push piers are high strength steel piles that are pushed down hydraulically to stable soil strata.  Prior to pushing the piers, the footer is exposed and a load transfer bracket is installed.  The pier is then pushed through the bracket to a target depth where load bearing strata exists.  

Push Piers are typically installed at 6ft intervals, and after all piers have been installed and driven, they are each pushed down simultaneously in order to achieve an even lift.

Push Piers are a highly reliable foundation underpinning solution for foundation stabilization, lifting, and load support. Primary applications are for rehabilitating existing foundations.

Helical Piles

Helical piles are a highly adaptable piering option that uses torque by “screwing” the pier into the sub strata. The strong steel screws of a helical pile are designed to help drive the pier down until there is enough resistance or torque to support the weight of the structure.

Helical piers can be used in a variety of applications. In foundation repair, helical piers can be used when stable soil strata is too deep for push piers to reach. But helical piers are excellent for new construction as they help ensure the foundation is effectively supported prior to construction by pre-driving piers to depth and building the structure or foundation on top of the helical piles.

Plumbing

As part of our foundation repair services, we offer under foundation plumbing repair to ensure the soil under the foundation is not compromised by plumbing issues.  Our plumbing services focus on problem inspection and identification, testing, and under foundation replacement and repair.

Polyurethane Injection

Polyurethane injection is a fast and effective method for lifting and leveling concrete slabs, filling voids, and soil densification.  Applications range from residential slab lifting and foundation repair to commercial soil densification and slab lifting to infrastructure services such as lateral line joint sealing, dam stabilization, and roadway leveling.

Minimally Invasive
Polyurethane injection is injected through a 5/8" hole (smaller than a nickel) that is drilled through the slab. There is no excavation required and the polyurethanes cure within 25 minutes.
Adaptable
Polyurethane Injection can be used for a variety of applications, such as slab lifting and leveling, soil densification and bonding, void filling, and leak sealing.
Soil Densification
Polyurethane injection helps stabilize, compact, and bond loose soils to provide better support for foundations and stops soil loss.
Environmentally Inert
Our polyurethanes are environmentally Inert and do not leach chemicals into groundwater or the environment.
Void Filling
Polyurethane is an excellent solution for filling voids and reestablishing soil contact with the foundation. This is why we use it along with our piering services.
