Foundation repair with helical piersFoundation piering for new construction

December 14, 2015by Jerald Sargent0

Foundation piering, long considered the solution for settling foundations is now being used more frequently in new construction. Why?

Foundation piering  for new construction makes sense! 

-Piers used in new construction enable homes to be built on steep slopes, slopes are prone to slides which undermine foundation support resulting in settling.

-Piers allow the stable construction of homes with weaker load bearing soils such as areas with a high water table, areas prone to flooding or bogs.

-Piers enable construction in areas with high concentrations of organic materials in the soil. Organic soils deteriorate over time causing settling.

-Piers greatly reduce the amount of concrete needed in a foundation as the load is carried by the piers not the concrete. The concrete acts primarily as a place for the wall plate to be attached.

If you are planning to build on less than optimal soil conditions consider helical or push piers as a way to insure a stable foundation.
