Warrantied Push Piers for Stabilizing Failing or Settling Foundations

Push pier illustrationWhat It Does:

SettleStop Push Piers are made of steel and are driven deep into the soil beneath a foundation to solve settlement problems.

Push piers can be installed inside or outside your foundation walls and are not visible once the repair is complete.

In many scenarios, push piers not only stop settlement but lift the foundation back to its original position, closing cracks and improving window and door operation.

Our push pier system is the permanent solution you need! Call us for a free push pier installation quote today!

How Foundation Push Pier Systems Work

A foundation push pier systemTo install a push pier system, soil is first removed to expose the foundation footing where the pier will be driven. A heavy-duty steel bracket is then installed below the footing.

Next, rugged, interlocking steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket until bedrock or stable soil is reached. The weight of the home is then transferred through the piers to this load-bearing soil.

Once this has been completed, your foundation contractors may attempt to lift the foundation, elevating the settled foundation back to its original position.

Once the homeowner and installing contractor are satisfied with the stabilization or amount of lift, the soil can be backfilled. The home is now permanently stabilized in its new position.

As with any family of products, there are good, better and best. When you’re talking about investing in your home’s structural stability, it’s a good idea to go with the best.

Along with their corrosion-resistant design that includes galvanized steeland a 25-year warranty, the SettleStop Push Pier System also includes a patent-pending external sleeve that strengthens the push pier directly below the foundation bracket, which is the most critical location for added structural support.

This external sleeve will strengthen the push pier and prevent the kinking, buckling, and rotation that is commonly seen with other push pier systems.
