Steel and Concrete Piers
Choosing between a steel or concrete pier can be a difficult decision.Triple J Foundation is ready to assist you in choosing the best option to fit your needs and budget. We are experts in taking on the unique challenges foundation repair brings and offer you the best possible solution for your foundation problems.
Steel piers are a type of well casing that are pressed into the ground and then topped with a special bracket which attaches to the beam of your foundation, lifting the structure.
Some of the advantages to using a steel pier include:
- maximum depth (up to 80 feet)
- maximum durability
- and more.
Steel piers are one of the two of the most common types of structural piling for residential foundation and sinkhole repair available on the market today.
For either commercial buildings or homes on slab foundations, a concrete pier approach may be an easier solution for your foundation repairs. Concrete piers are columns that are formed by pouring liquid concrete into holes that have been drilled into the ground.
Concrete piers last as long as your concrete foundation. At each location where the pillar is going to be installed, a hole will be drilled down to a depth of 12 to 20 feet below your concrete slab. The concrete will take approximately seven days to harden.
