Foundation Repair Using Resistance Piers
Our patented steel resistance piering systems are installed to depths well below the problem Missouri soils cause in foundation settlement. In fact, our resistance piers will reach all the way to bedrock or adequate load bearing stratum before installation is complete.
These rigid columns of high strength steel are attached to your foundation's footing using heavy duty steel foundation brackets to create the new permanent support for the structure.
The steel piers are hydraulically driven to stable bedrock or load bearing strata and the weight of the structure transferred to the steel brackets attached to the foundation. This attachment is below the ground so nothing is exposed once the process is completed.
Each pier is load tested with a safety factor calculated to ensure a reliable permanent solution. The installation is fast and can be installed in limited areas. The structure is carefully restored back by lifting in unison on each pier or sections of piers.
On the majority of Central Missouri foundation stabilization projects, windows and doors that used to stick will become functional, and cracks and other blemishes can be permanently repaired without concern for them reappearing.
