Our Foundation Repair Products

Our foundation repair products are all manufactured by Supportworks. They provide us with the latest in foundational support technology to use on your home or business. Take a look at the information below to get a feel for what piering products we can use on your foundation.

Push Piers

Push Piers

Steel push piers are utilized for structural foundation repairs on foundations that are settling and not completely in place. They are fastened to the foundation, then pushed down with a hydraulic press. This press will keep going until it goes as far as it can go into the solid bedrock. Anchoring this pier into the bedrock allows your home or business to be supported by the foundation itself rather than the soil below it. This will often allow the foundation to be pushed back into place, while also having large metal pieces that take on the support of your structure instead of the soil or basement walls.

Slab Piers

All of our products are made with various scenarios in mind. Slab piers deal with a condition we sometimes see when the basement begins to sink due to unstable soil. This will cause cracking and sinking of the flooring, which can be a major tripping hazard for anyone living or working there. Slab piers are laid down from wall to wall with a tight seal. This ensures that the slab will take the brunt of the support rather than complete reliance upon the basement walls themselves. This not only stabilizes your house, but also helps stop the floor from cracking.

Helical Piers

Helical piers are typically used to ensure that a new building or business does not deal with sinking soil. These can be installed in almost any soil condition to prevent foundation issues. Helical piers stabilize the building by distributing weight and absorbing shock so your foundation doesn’t shift. Not only do they stabilize the outside forces but also the internal forces that may be at play with your foundation. The design is meant to be installed at all the major load-bearing areas of your building and take the pressure off of the basement walls.
