What Are Slab Piers? 

Slab piers are custom-made foundation repair elements engineered to offer long-term stability to settling slab foundations. Unlike generic repair methods, slab piers are created specifically with slab foundations in mind. 

These piers function as sturdy pillars that redistribute your home’s weight to firmer, more stable soil layers, preventing further settling and safeguarding your home from soil changes and shifts. 

Not only do slab piers provide foundational stability, but they can also restore your home closer to its original position. 

Moreover, integrating slab piers into your home improvement plans can contribute to overall structural well-being, complementing other services like basement waterproofing and crawl space repair. They are a critical aspect of a whole-home strategy to preserve your home’s lifespan.
