Foundation Underpinning

Advantages of Helical & Resistance Piers

Resistance Piers

There are many advantages of the resistance pier or helical pier system when compared to other forms of underpinning.

  • Site specific installation depths
  • Resistance piers can be used in rocky or dense soils that would stop other types of pier systems
  • Immediate verification of load carrying capacity
  • Elimination of soil spoils
  • Minimal site disturbance
  • Wide range of lifting capabilities
  • Installation equipment is portable and maneuverable
  • Limited access projects can be accommodated

Resistance-Based Installation For Optimal Stability EVERY TIME!

Push Pier SystemsBecause resistance piers utilize the weight of your structure for resistance, heavy machinery is usually not required to drive piers as with other pier installation methods. Thus, a typical foundation repair using resistance piers in Florida is minimally invasive and causes very little disturbance to your yard.

Installation of the resistance pier system effectively transfers the weight of your settling foundation from the unstable soil to our deep-driven steel piers. Each pier is driven individually, allowing incredible flexibility as the foundation repair contractor is able to drive each pier to the depth necessary to achieve target resistance.

Why Helical Piers?

The helical foundation repair system has been engineered as a flexible, cost effective, minimally invasive and reliable method of repairing building foundations. The truly unique aspect to the helical pier is its versatility.

Helical piers can be installed in a traditional vertical manner utilizing a foundation repair bracket to stabilize a setting foundation. Helical piers can also be installed as tension anchors to repair bowing or sagging basement or crawlspace walls. No matter the application, the helical pier is installed to exceed the weight requirements of the structure and the unique soil composition of each individual project.
