How foundation push piers work
Rugged steel tube sections are hydraulically driven through heavy-duty steel foundation brackets to reach the depths of competent load-bearing strata. The weight of your home is then carefully transferred from the original unstable soils, through the piers, to the competent soil or bedrock. This ensures no further settlement will occur and also provides the best opportunity to lift your home back to its level position.
Because push piers are driven all the way to bedrock or a stable soil layer, they are often the least risky solution when local soil conditions are unknown.
If you're installing foundation piers on lighter structures such as stoops or decks, helical pier installation might be more effective. This is because the structure may not be heavy enough to drive the push piers to sufficient depth to support your structure.
Why Supportworks push piers?
Along with the corrosion-resistant galvanized steel design and 25-year warranty, the Supportworks push pier system is also designed with a unique external sleeve that strengthens the push pier directly below the foundation bracket, which is the most critical location for added structural support. This external steel sleeve strengthens the push pier and prevents kinking, buckling and rotation that's common with other push pier systems.
