Push Piers

A strong foundation is indispensable for the structural integrity of your home as well as the well-being of your family. If a sinking or shifting foundation is causing concern, you are not alone; many homeowners across our region deal with similar issues. 

Foundation Repair Systems’ Push Piers are meticulously designed to not only anchor but possibly elevate your unstable foundation. As a leader in foundation repair, we offer unmatched quality and expertise. 

This page serves as your guide to understanding push piers, their critical role in foundation repair, and the unique advantages of our products and services. 

What Are Push Piers? 

Push Piers are constructed from high-quality structural steel and mechanically inserted into the earth beneath the foundation of your home. These piers go deep enough to avoid fluctuating soil layers and lock into stable strata or bedrock, thereby ensuring a dependable foundation. 

Sometimes called resistance piers, they are driven into the soil until a level of resistance is met, indicating a reliable foundation support. 

Push Piers function as an essential part of a whole-home repair strategy, blending with other basement, foundation, crawl space, and concrete repair solutions to deliver enduring structural reliability.

Ignoring these early warnings could lead to more severe damage as time progresses. Consult Foundation Repair Systems, your local foundation repair expert, to address these issues as soon as they are noticed.

Push piers are an essential component of our integrated solution designed to steady your foundation and possibly realign it. Swift action can save both money and stress. 

While push piers are highly effective, Foundation Repair Systems offers other foundation support options, such as helical and slab piers, that could better suit your home’s unique situation. Our free inspection will determine the most effective course of action.
