Warrantied Piering Solutions for Sinking Foundation Slab Floors
The slab pier system can stabilize and restore concrete slabs damaged by settlement. The pier consists of interlocking tubular steel sections. An adjustable bracket connects the top of the pier to the underside of the slab.
Slab piers are designed to be driven deep into the earth, bypassing soils that are ill-suited to support weight, so that your floor can be supported by strong, competent earth. Slab piers also provide an opportunity to lift your concrete slab back to its original position, often closing cracks and eliminating tripping hazards.
Slab Piers Feature:
- Year-Round Installation
- Galvanized Steel for Corrosion Resistance
- Deep Pier Installation Extends Beyond Unsuitable Soils
- Non-Disruptive Installation
- Creates Opportunity To Lift Slab & Partition Walls Back To Level Position
- 25-Year Manufacturer's Warranty
How Slab Pier Systems Work
There are two types of slab piers: push-type slab piers and helical slab piers. Both foundation repair products can be effective, and selecting one over the other depends on your unique situation. Both types of slab piers use small installation equipment, so installations can be completed in tight-access areas such as bathrooms or laundry rooms.
Steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket until the pier contacts competent soils.
The next step is to transfer the weight of the concrete slab through the piers to the deep, stable soil. A lift can then be attempted to bring the slab and interior partition walls back to their original position.
Grout is then carefully pumped at a low pressure under the slab to fill the void created by the soil settlement and slab-lifting process. Finally, holes at pier locations are filled with concrete, leaving the floor stabilized in its new position.
You should use slab piers in all cases except when either the floor slab is extremely thin or the cracking is extensive.
