When it comes to underpinning your foundation to stop damage from occurring and stabilize your home into the future, there simply is no better push pier system than steel push piers. It is a tested and proven method of foundation repair and it is why steel push pier installation is our favorite method to use for Nashville properties.
What is a steel push pier?
One of the most used foundation repair products, steel push piers are relatively slim lengths of steel or steel alloy that can reach the solid bedrock beneath your home in order to find load-bearing strata to properly support your foundation. The size of the pier and the use of friction reduction materials reduces the skin friction – or soil drag – on the pier as it is driven into the soil. Steel piers are able to be load-tested to ensure they have hit the bedrock.
How is our steel push pier installation performed?
It is surprisingly quick to install steel push piers. Often the work can be completed in just a couple of days. First, some excavation must be done around the foundation, then foundation brackets are mounted for the push pier system. At that point, we are able to drive the steel push piers deep into the earth until they reach solid support and we can transfer the weight of your structure onto the steel piers.
