Push Piers

Your home is supposed to be built on firm soil, safeguarding its structural integrity and the well-being of your loved ones. The reality is the soil isn’t always as stable as it should be—and it might lead to a settling foundation

When foundation settling occurs, some serious issues will arise. Don’t procrastinate in addressing damage like cracks in your drywall or windows and doors that stick. For homeowners across the Southeast United States, we offer a proven remedy. 

AFS’s push piers are engineered to permanently stabilize—and potentially lift—your foundation. As a recognized authority in foundation repair, we offer comprehensive services to maintain the safety of your home. 

This page will navigate you through the essentials of push piers, their necessity, and why choosing our products and services is beneficial. 

What Are Push Piers? 

Push Piers are sturdy steel supports that are mechanically driven into the ground beneath your home’s foundation. These supports go deep, bypassing expansive soil layers until they connect with solid bedrock or more reliable load-bearing strata, delivering a steadfast foundation support system. 

As an integral component of a broader home stability strategy, push piers complement other foundation, basement, crawl space, and concrete repair methods to furnish a long-lasting, comprehensive solution, thus securing your home for years to come. 

Signs You Need Push Piers 

Typically, push piers become necessary when clear symptoms of foundation settling appear. Watch out for:

Are Push Piers Necessary? 

Yes. Postponing foundation repair only compounds problems like settling, leading to costlier and more complex issues down the road. Acting quickly helps prevent damage from getting worse. 

While push piers are a key tool for foundation repair, AFS offers other types of foundation pier systems—such as helical and slab piers—that may be more suitable for your unique circumstances. A complimentary assessment by our experts will determine the most effective solution for you.
