Why Might I Need To Use Steel Piers?
It is fairly common for properties to suffer settlement, as the soil on which they are built shifts and leads to foundation problems, This might be because the soil beneath the property is very dry and therefore shrinks away, or because it has become very compacted, causing the home to start to move slightly downwards. This can cause severe structural damage to the home if left unchecked – including cracks to the external walls and floors. If settlement occurs, one approach is to use steel piers to reinforce the foundation and make the property sound again.
What Are The Benefits of Steel Piers?
Steel piers are an extremely popular choice for foundation repair experts, and here at Fort Worth Foundation Repair Experts, we frequently use steel piers to repair damaged foundations. Steel piers are extremely strong, adjustable and can be installed using portable equipment, which means we can carry out work on most residential and commercial sites. The piers can be installed without significant vibration, which limits damage to the existing foundation. There is a wide range of steel piers to choose from, including those suited to even the most heavy duty job. Our foundation contractors will select the best, high quality steel pier for any repair job we undertake.
What Is The Process For Installing Steel Piers?
Our contractor will be happy to talk through the process used for installing steel piers in your particular property, as each project will be slightly different. In short, the foundations of the home will be excavated to allow the steel piers to be installed. The piers are then put in place, with the weight of the foundations being transferred when they reach the right location. The piers can then be adjusted to ensure that any sagging in the original foundation is corrected, and the home is leveled up again.
