Understanding Concrete Pier Foundation Repair
Among the oldest and most common methods of foundation repair throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area is concrete pier foundation repair. Concrete piers are columns that the team at Accurate Foundation Repair can create by pouring liquid concrete into holes we drill into the ground beneath your home or light commercial facility. Typically, we will drill a hole that is 12” in diameter and extends to 12’ to 20’ below the surface of your concrete foundation. We then lower a set of reinforcing steel bars into the hole before pouring concrete into it. After letting the concrete set and harden for a week, we will place hydraulic jacks on the piers to lift your foundation. After lifting it, our team will use steel and concrete spacers for additional support. After completing this process, we will cover each pier and clean the area.
How Concrete Pilings Differ from Concrete Piers
The main difference between concrete piers and concrete pilings are their sizes and shapes. Concrete piers are cylindrical, whereas their counterparts are pre-cast concrete segments. Additionally, piers are usually installed to a shallower depth than concrete pilings. Each solution will support the damaged foundation at your home or business, and Accurate Foundation Repair is adept at helping determine which will work best for your building and the soil beneath your property. The underlying soil is a significant factor in terms of stability, so we will evaluate its condition before making any recommendations.
Determining Whether You Need Concrete Piers or Pilings
In addition to evaluating your foundation’s current condition and the soil beneath your home or office in Fort Worth, TX, Accurate Foundation Repair will assess how much stability you need. If you need a great deal of support, concrete pilings may be the best option for your property because we can root them far below your foundation to ensure solidity. Either option is designed to hold firm for as long as your concrete foundation is in place. We even offer a limited lifetime warranty so that you can rest assured your home or commercial property is safe. Should anything go wrong or any issues arise, let us know.
