If your property is afflicted with foundation problems like sinking or settlement, then one of the most common pieces of equipment used to rectify the damage are piers. The ones you’ll see most often are of the steel or push variety. Soil can recede from the walls of your foundation over time. This is exacerbated when there are cold weather conditions. The soil then gets crushed under the weight of the building that rests upon it. Your property can then sink into the ground. The solution to this underpinning, an established solution for fixing foundations. As the premier Seattle Foundation Repair Company we have plenty of experience in this area, and we use the best equipment from a company called Earth Contact Products.

Piers work by being pressed deep down into the soil until they are stable enough to take the weight of what’s above them. Hydraulics can then be activated which push the foundations back up to their proper height. This allows your property to appear and function just as it did before the problems occurred.

STEEL PIERS FOR FOUNDATION STABILITY

The four steps of safely installing steel piers:
  • The land surrounding the foundations will be dug up and moved aside
  • Mounting of a bracket for the foundations will occur as a base for the piers
  • The piers will then be put in place beneath your property
  • They will then take the weight of the building

The steel piers that we use have a patent to demonstrate their effectiveness at elevating sunken foundations. They are now known throughout the industry and are called ECP Steel Piers. The contractors who we employ also use them in their other work.

Depending on the extent and type of the problems, and the type of activities the building is used for, different versions of the ECP Steel Pier will be required. The 350 model is one of the most frequently employed ones and was one of the first models that was created. Its ability to be pushed very deeply into the soil makes it valuable in foundation repairs. No friction is required with this model, as it is end-bearing.

Some key facts about steel piers:

  • A 99,000 pound capacity
    A load-bearing weight of 74,000 pounds
  • A surface area of 74 Sq. inches
  • An average elevation of 4 inches
  • It is completely flexible in terms of lift capability
  • It can be put in place internally or externally
  • It includes a special collar that limits friction
  • It is portable for ease of transport and installation
  • Limited vibration occurs during the installation
  • It can be installed in various types of stratum
  • Every pier is tested to ensure it can withstand the weight of the building
  • A 75 year warranty is included as part of the foundation repair

Helical Piers and Piles are needed for numerous residential and commercial applications and may be used when the job specifies caissons, driven piles or mini piles. Once foundations are exposed to moisture over a long period of time or construction is cited on unstable soil, structural and foundation damage becomes visible. To repair the foundations of your property and ensure the building does not lose value, they are used to stabilize the foundation. Helical piers and piles can also be used to repair foundations when foundation failure becomes apparent:
