Hydraulically Pressed Solutions 

Hydraulically pressed piers use the weight of the structure above it to mechanically press the piers or pilings into the ground. As they are pressed into the ground they slowly begin to build up friction along the surface area until they reach the point of refusal. By manipulating the material type and fabrication process we can allow some types of pressed piers to reach the rock layer before their point of friction refusal.

These types of piers are best suited for more modern concrete slab foundations or pier and beam foundation with sturdy concrete perimeter, as they can damage thinner and less sturdier types of foundations with the hydraulic force.

Concrete Pressed Pilings

This cost-effective option is suited for softer soils that allow for easier penetration into the clay. Our cylinders are pushed to refusal into the clay by building up friction on the sides of the cylinders. Our high compressive strength concrete is rated much higher than even your slab foundation. As long as it's installed in suitable clays, this pier will remain stable and effective.

Steel Pier

Our steel pier is a top of the line pier used to repair foundations permanently. Unlike concrete piers that can have trouble pushing through tougher clays, steel pier's sleeve lock design allows each piling to lock into the next, using friction reduction technology to push to the rock layer. Also, steel pier is concentrically loaded, meaning it's installed directly below the foundation, not offset via an expensive bracket.

Hybrid Transition Pier

The hybrid transition piers are perfect for homeowners who want the strength, stability and longevity of a steel pier system, but don't want to break the bank. These piers are made of a mixture of double-walled steel and high-strength concrete, reaching deeper into the ground than a traditional concrete pier. So if you're looking for a stable foundation that won't put a dent in your wallet, hybrid transition piers are the perfect solution.

Drilled or Placed in Spot Solutions 

Drilled or placed in spot supports do not rely on the weight of the structure to install. This allows us to install a pier to support the foundation without pushing on the bottom of it. These types of supports are better suited for lighter weight structures or thinner concrete slabs. These types of foundation can be damaged when hydraulically pressed against.

These types of supports can be installed to a predetermined depth based on engineering recommendations that take into account the type of strata, the weight of the structure, and materials being supported. Their downside is that they are limited to certain depths and typically are more expensive.

Drilled Pier

Drilled piers are a perfect foundation repair solution for lightweight structures that could be damaged by a hydraulic press. These 8- to 24-inch diameter piers are reinforced with rebar and filled with concrete, making them a reliable and sturdy option for those structures. However, they can only reach 12 feet deep, so they're best suited for structures whose foundations are equal to or deeper than that.

Helical Pier

Helical Piers will be ultimate upgrade to a drilled pier, as you aren't limited in depth like you are with a drilled pier. They can be installed much quicker than drilled piers as well, as they can take up to a week to install, where twice as many helical piers can be installed in a single day. This steel pier will hold up longer and stay interconnected much better as well. While it does carry the highest cost of any pier, in the right situation it will be
worth it in the long run.

Pad & Block

These are your basic type of support, typically found under much older pier and beam homes. Originally they would build these homes sitting on tree stumps. However these concrete pads and blocks will perform much better as the larger base pad gives you more surface area and it'll be less prone to rot. People looks to upgrade to these in situations where they want more stability for their older home, without breaking the bank.
