An Effective Stabilizing Solution
Foundations that are located on top of weak or shifting soil can be easily damaged. When soil moves, the weight-bearing ability of the foundation changes. Oftentimes, walls crack or shift as the foundation moves around slightly. Ground issues can also inflict damage directly onto foundations. Hairline cracks can develop or moisture can slowly work its way into the foundation and weaken it. Thankfully, Foundation Support Specialists has solutions to help. If your property has cracked or weakened walls, contact us today at 210-267-8828! We use push piers in San Antonio and Austin, TX to help stabilize foundations. They help take some of the structural weight off the foundation and anchor a home or building into deeper soil that’s less likely to shift. This style of piers is a great solution because they can be installed relatively quickly with little disruption. Our push piers come from leading manufacturer Earth Contact Products. They produce some of the best, most reliable foundation repair products in the nation.
Push Pier Basics
Push piers are typically made of steel to maximize durability and strength. Property owners don’t want rust to weaken underground piers years down the road. The installation process is also streamlined to avoid any damage to the foundation or structure on top of it. Innovative drills limit the amount of vibration that’s sent out by the piers. Engineers can quickly load test installed piers to make sure the entire foundation is getting the support it needs.
After push piers are installed across a foundation, the weight of the home or building is shifted from the foundation onto the piers. Sunken or damaged foundations can be lifted and restored to their original positions with the use of strong hydraulic jacks. The jacks use manifold systems to make sure all of the piers act in unison so the result is an even, steady foundation.
