Slab Pier System
Are you noticing shifting, settling and even cracks in your foundation? SouthernDry recommends Slab Piers as the solution for solving the cracking and shifting problems associated with homes built on a concrete slab foundation. A settling concrete foundation can cause immense structural problems for a home. Some signs may be cracks in the concrete foundation and the drywall, and doors that don’t open or close properly. The Slab Piers System is engineered to be driven deep into the ground to anchor on soil that is stable and won’t shift like soil near the surface. Slab piers lift a concrete foundation back into position and permanently prevents it from moving again.
Why Use the Slab Pier System?
Many structures in Alabama have concrete slabs that are not able to support the weight of the foundation due to shifting soil. If you have problems with your concrete foundation, you’ll notice shifting in the foundation and possibly cracks as well. SouthernDry’s experts are highly trained to be able to evaluate your concrete foundation and recommend the Slab Pier System if your concrete foundation is hazardous to you and the inhabitants of the building. Slab piers are engineered to be driven deep into the ground, bypassing shifting soil, so that your concrete floor can be better supported. Slab piers are also able to lift your concrete slab back to its original position if necessary, closing any cracks and eliminating tripping hazards that occurred as a result of the shifting concrete foundation.
