HOW ARE THEY INSTALLED?

The installation process is simple.

  1. In each location where a pier is going to be installed, a hole is drilled down to the target depth, generally between 12 and 20 feet below the surface of your slab. Each hole is typically 12 inches in diameter. The holes go down the depth specified by the report.
  2. Next, a set of reinforcing steel bars are tied together and lowered into the hole.
  3. The concrete is allowed to cure or harden for 7 days.
  4. When all of the piers are hardened, hydraulic jacks are placed on the piers and are then used to lift your foundation.
  5. Once your foundation is lifted, steel and concrete spacers are placed on the piers to support your foundation, and the hydraulic jacks are removed.
  6. The final step is to cover the piers and clean up.
