What are push piers?

Push piers are a type of supporting structure that are hydraulically propelled into the ground to reinforce the weight of your home. These heavy-duty steel units are installed into load-bearing soil to prevent your home’s foundation from further settling. The piers are constructed on galvanized steel, which is long-lasting and withstands corrosion.

How are push piers installed?

The installation of push piers begins with digging an area along your Knoxville home’s foundation. A steel bracket is then attached to the foundation and a hydraulic ram is used to insert the push piers into the soil. A hydraulic pump is then attached to the piers and raises the house back to the appropriate level. After the home is stabilized, the soil is backfilled into the areas that were excavated.
