Resistance Pier System
Are you noticing your foundation is not level or you have cracks in structural walls? Resistance Piers are our solution for solving your foundation settlement and movement problems around your home or business. These resistance piers are pipe segments that are hydraulically-pushed in order to stabilize your residential or commercial building. Foundation settlement and movement is a common problem, and it can be caused by building on expanding clay, improperly compacted soils, or by lacking the proper maintenance around foundations. It doesn’t matter the cause, Resistance Piers are our cost-effective solution to your foundation settlement and movement problems.
How Does it Work?
The Resistance Pier System is engineered to use the weight of your structure as its reaction system to further push sections of the pier deeper into the soil.
Why Use Resistance Piers?
Many structures are not supported appropriately and this leads to cracks and other deformities when the foundation begins to settle. This problem becomes noticeable when cracking shows up in your foundation, or when you notice that the level of the foundation begins to shift. SouthernDry’s experts are highly trained at evaluating your Alabama foundation needs and recommended this system if it’s necessary for the safety of you and everyone else in the structure. The Resistance Pier System is engineered to fit your particular foundation and the type of the soil causing the problem. The pier system is anchored, lifts your foundation into place, and keeps it in place to keep your structure safe and secure. Without an effective system like the Resistance Piers, it is only a matter of time before the foundation becomes lethally hazardous for the entire building.
Advantages of the Resistance Pier System:
- Each pier is tested individually during the installation process
- Our equipment allows for installation in hard-to-access areas
- No materials to clean up
- After installation the system is immediately ready for structural support
