Shifting / Settling Foundations

Untitled-1

The Basement Guys® use the best foundation pier alternative on the market. Our system was designed to be the strongest foundation pier in the industry by combining galvanized steel and high strength concrete. Each pier is installed centrally beneath the footing rather than outside of the footing, thus transferring the structural load directly on top of the foundation pier. Our foundation pier system will achieve the greatest depth possible while installed in a position to provide the greatest support.

Our interlocking, patent pending foundation pier segments are comprised of high-strength concrete that is pre-cast in a steel sleeve which resists corrosion, providing superior shear strength and compressive resistance as proven by independent testing labs. The outer casing is filled with a concrete core, and cured for maximum hardness. The foundation pier segments are hydraulically driven into the ground one at a time. After one foundation pier segment is driven, another segment is connected to the foundation pier, and the process is repeated until the foundation pier hits bedrock or a dense strata of sub- surface material. The foundation pier is then topped with a galvanized steel cap, and finally the house is lifted and secured to the foundation pier.

Advantages Include:

  • Pier is centrally and directly beneath the Load/Footing and Foundation
  • No loose shimmed components that can allow for slippage
  • All parts are connected to form a monolithic unit

The result is a foundation that far exceeds the home’s original structural integrity, making your foundation better than new.
