Foundation Repair:
New Construction Piers

One of the most common foundation repair solutions is foundation piering. This is a process by which resistance piers are driven into the ground beneath a foundation. These piers help to lift a settling foundation back to its original position and to provide the failing foundation with some much needed stability. There are several types of foundation piers that can be used for this process: steel piers, helical piers (which are screwed into the ground instead of merely driven in), and slab piers are just a few of the many options.

Although they are generally used for foundation repair, helical piers can also be used in new construction. These piering devices work to support the foundation, preventing problems from arising in the future; ensuring that your foundation is stable in the first place will save you time and money later on. New construction piers are becoming an increasingly popular replacement for traditional poured concrete piles. They provide a much more versatile solution:

  • Easy and simple installation
  • No spoils to be removed
  • Immediate weight loading
  • Can be installed in all types of weather
  • Installed deep below active soils
  • No need to wait on drying concrete
  • Little disruption to work site
  • Little to no vibration
  • Torque correlates to capacity
  • Can be easily load tested to verify capacity

The piers are screwed deep into the ground until they reach the stable soil beneath the shifting layers of topsoil. They then anchor into this soil to provide support for the structure above. the slender shaft of helical piers and their ability to resist skin friction allows them to remain solidly in place even as the soil around the shifts. Installing new construction piers under new foundations is a great way to ensure that your structure remains strong and stable for years to come.
