Our patented steel piering or piling systems are installed to depths well below the problematic St. Louis Missouri area soils that cause foundation settlement. In fact, our resistance piers will reach all the way to bedrock or adequate load bearing strata before installation is complete.
These steel piers are rigid columns of high strength steel that are attached to your foundation's footing using heavy duty steel foundation brackets to create the new permanent support for the structure.
The steel piers are hydraulically driven to stable bedrock or load bearing strata and the weight of the structure transferred to the steel brackets attached to the foundation. This attachment is below the ground so nothing is exposed once the process is completed.
Each pier is load tested with a safety factor calculated to ensure a reliable permanent solution. The installation is fast and can be installed in limited areas. The structure is carefully restored back by lifting in unison on each pier or sections of piers.
On the majority of St. Louis Missouri foundation stabilization projects, windows and doors that used to stick will become functional, and cracks and other blemishes can be permanently repaired without concern for them reappearing.
Our unique pier solutions provide the strength and stability that can only be found in the best American steel.
We Offer Several Foundation Repair Solutions For:
- Below-slab vertical piers
- Porch piers
- Pre-construction piers
- Center beam piers
- Low profile piers
Pier Driving Head
The Ram Jack driving head delivers rapid power to long sections of piling for faster installation and a stronger pile.
The Ram Jack system incorporates dual rams that drive deeper into permanent strata.
Pier Guide Sleeve
Variable-length guide sleeves, which are preferred by engineers, are designed to stiffen the piling in less-compacted surface layers.
