What Are Push Piers?
Push piers are designed with heavy-duty steel, and are connected to your foundation by a steel bracket. Each pier is driven deep below your home to strong supporting soils that can bear the weight of your structure.
Our Push Pier System 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.
Push Pier Installation
Installation of the Push Pier System is all below grade, which means the system itself will not be visible after installation to detract from the beauty of your home. Installations can be performed year-round and do not require the use of heavy equipment, which can damage your lawn and landscaping.
- Excavate Around The Foundation: At each pier location, the foundation is excavated to expose the foundation footing.
- Mount The Foundation Bracket: During installation, heavy duty steel foundation brackets are secured to your foundation’s footings.
- Install The Push Piers: Galvanized steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket to competent soils or bedrock.
- Transfer The Weight: The weight of your home is then carefully transferred from unstable soil conditions through the piers onto load-bearing strata, resulting in the permanent stabilization of your home’s foundation.
- Once the installation is completed, you have the choice of either stabilizing your home at its present location or lifting your home back to a level position. Either way, the Push Pier System offers you the strength, durability, and lifespan of galvanized steel as well as the peace of mind of knowing your home is back on solid ground.
Repairing a foundation with a push pier system can be done any time of the year. Our complete, installed system can be completed in just a few days, and includes a written, transferable warranty when the work is done.
