Push Pier Systems utilize high-strength round steel tube sections and a load transfer bracket to stabilize and/or lift sinking or settling foundations. The foundation bracket is secured against the existing footing and pier sections are driven hydraulically through the foundation bracket and into the soil below using the combined structural weight and any contributory soil load as resistance. Pier sections are continuously driven until a suitable load bearing stratum is encountered.
Our Push Pier System provides the best Opportunity to lift home to original position and is fast and effective.
This home in Saratoga Springs has several cracks in the drywall and the doors would not close properly due to settling of the foundation. We were able to repair the cracks and foundation issues using 64 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.
