We install double (8″) shafted piers. Average pier depth is 9′-12′ deep depending on the conditions. Pier excavations are reinforced with steel rebar and filled with concrete. After the concrete has been allowed to cure we can begin lifting the foundation. See the diagram at the right for detailed specifications of the pier. Engineers recommend them for foundation repairs in Dallas, we build them.
In the process of using pressed concrete piers, these piers are meticulously driven into the soil until they reach the point of refusal. This point refers to a depth at which the cylindrical pier faces enough resistance to halt its further penetration into the soil. In the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, this point of refusal is typically encountered due to either compressed clay or rock, which presents a sturdy barrier preventing the pier from advancing any deeper. This method ensures a stable and reliable foundation support system, making it an essential technique for addressing foundation-related challenges in the region.
Steel piers, also referred to as push piers, consist of interconnected steel pipe sections. These pipes are hydraulically driven into the ground, typically one section at a time, until the pier reaches a stable load-bearing layer. Once in place, the sections are secured using cables.
The installation process involves fixing the steel pipes to the footing system of the structure and inserting them deep into the ground. The primary objectives are to stabilize the foundation and offer additional support to the existing structure.
