Foundation Underpinning and Piering

There are two methods used to support sinking foundations: Foundation Push Piers and Foundation Helical Piers. Your local FSI dealer will determine which is the right solution for your home and provide a free estimate on repair.

A push pier

Push Piers

Push pier systems are an easy, economical solution that will provide you with a long-lasting result.

Manufactured with industrial-strength, galvanized steel, Foundation Supportworks piers have a high resistance to corrosion with a 100+ design life in moderate soil conditions.

Foundation Push Piers

The Foundation Supportworks Push Pier System permanently stabilizes your home's foundation and offers the best opportunity to lift your home back to level without the expense and disruption of a full foundation replacement. If you've detected cracks, uneven floors, jamming doors or windows that stick, then you may be witnessing the signs of the settling foundation. Contact a local Foundation Supportworks expert to ensure that you utilize the easiest and least invasive means of repairing your settling foundation.

Foundation Supportworks Push Pier systems utilize high-strength steel pier sections that are hydraulically driven through heavy-duty steel foundation brackets to reach deep down to competent load-bearing strata. The piers have the ability to reach far below the problem soils and do not rely on friction for capacity. Used in both residential and commercial applications, pier installation can be completed year-round without the major disruption of other methods. Foundation Supportworks Push Piers effectively stabilize settling foundations and provide the best opportunity to lift your home back to a level position.

Step 2: Foundation Bracket is secured to the footing.

Step 3: Steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket to competent soil or bedrock.

Step 4: The weight of the home is transferred through the piers to load bearing strata. Home is lifted back to
level if possible.

a helical pier

Helical Piers

Foundation Supportworks helical piers are able to efficiently stabilize distressed foundations by transferring the load of the structure from unstable soil, through the piers, to competent soil strata below.

The Journal of Light Construction states that compared to rebuilding a concrete foundation, installing helical piers is much faster, usually taking at least a week or two less than the alternative.

Helical Pier Systems

The helical pier systems offered by Foundation Supportworks can fix your failing foundation and restore the property value of your home. If you've noticed interior or exterior wall cracks, a leaning chimney, or gaps in window and door frames, you could have a serious foundation problem. Contact a local Foundation Supportworks expert to ensure that you utilize the easiest and least invasive means of repairing your settling foundation.

Foundation Supportworks Helical Pier Systems will permanently stabilize your home's foundation and provide you an opportunity to lift the structure back to a level position. Round-shaft helical piers have a high resistance to buckling and have the torsional strength to penetrate deep into competent soil unlike other square-shaft helical alternatives. Another benefit of helical piers is that they do not use the weight of the home as resistance during installation, so they can be used on both heavy and lightly loaded structures such as sinking stoops, decks, or sunrooms.

Helical piers are installed by mechanically "screwing" them into the soil using small construction equipment or handheld equipment. Once they reach the proper depth, heavy-duty steel brackets are installed under the footing.

Helical Pier Advantages:

Don't wait for the problem to get worse. Contact a Foundation Supportworks dealer to schedule an appointment for a free evaluation of your property today.

Helical Pier Installation Steps:

Step 1: Footing is exposed and prepared for the bracket.

Step 2: Round-shaft helical piers are mechanically advanced into the soil

Step 3

Step 3: Foundation Bracket is secured to the footing.

Step 4: The weight of the home is transferred through the piers to load bearing strata. Home is lifted back to
level if possible.
