Foundation Settlement is a common structural problem seen in homes throughout the area and is one of our most prominent foundation repair services. It is typically caused by poor soil pressure around a building, creating gaps below the property causing the house will start to collapse. It may also be caused by insufficient building materials or techniques used during the construction of the house, but this is not as common as problems with the ground. St. George, Utah Helical Piers, and Repair of Push Piers analyze different styles of foundations. There are concrete foundations, pier and beam foundations, and raised foundations, among several other items. There are several different categories of foundation choices, but the most commonly used are metal push piers or helical piers. Both heavy-duty steel pier devices operate by moving the construction's weight over soft soils to a more suitable soil surface.
Push piers are sometimes referred to as steel piers that are hydraulically mounted and are made of steel. They reach into the soil from your foundation to the most solid level of bedrock available. With the use of the piers, the weight of the home is then pushed down to the ground, giving you a safe, strong foundation that is robust for years to come. Push piers are made of heavy, sturdy, solid metal items that will remain strong in your building's soil.
