Piering pipe Bacement and Foundation Repair
 
PIERING REPAIR METHOD

Piering is the installation of a new support system installed under the existing footings and going deeper into the ground to keep the structure in place. A hole is dug below the damaged footing to allow for the new pier leg to be installed under (not alongside) the existing floor. A hydraulic pump then pushes our solid filled (no hollow) steel pier leg segments down to bedrock or a solid formation (hydraulic push measured by psi (pressure per square inch). When the proper pressure range is recorded on the pressure gauge the pier legs are in place. Then the steel top support platform is put in place and jacks are installed to stabilize or lift the damaged area back up in place. The jacks are then removed and the pier areas area backfilled and the permanent support system is in place.
