What does steel piering fix? As happens all too often, a home’s foundation will sink or settle as a result of poor drainage or unstable surrounding soil conditions. This kind of damage is progressive, leading to bulging walls and foundation settlement, which can compromise the structural stability of the house.
How does it work? There are two kinds of Steel piering: push piers reinforce the failing foundation using epoxy coated steel pipe attached to the foundation, and helical piers employ screw piles and steel shafts to support the home. With both of these systems, the steel connects the foundation to areas of more stable soil to ensure structural stability. Foundations that are sinking can then even be elevated back to their original level.
Compared to replacing the foundation, this process is much cheaper and less invasive. You can still use your house while it’s being done.
If you’re seeing signs of foundation settlements—like cracks in the walls, floor or tiles, or doors, and windows that stick—see if the steel piering is right for you.
