Supportworks Push Piers are made of steel and are driven deep into the soil beneath a foundation to solve settlement problems, potentially raising the foundation back to original position.
Push piers can be installed inside or outside your foundation walls and are not visible once the foundation repair process is complete.
In many scenarios, push piers not only stop settlement but lift the foundation back to its original elevation, closing cracks and improving window and door operation.

To install a push pier system, soil is first removed to expose the foundation footing where the pier will be driven. A heavy-duty steel bracket is then installed below the footing.
Next, rugged, interlocking steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket until bedrock or stable soil is reached. The weight of the home is then transferred through the piers to this load-bearing soil.
Once this has been completed, your foundation contractors may attempt to lift the foundation, elevating the settled foundation back to its original position.
Once the homeowner and installing contractor are satisfied with the stabilization or amount of lift, the soil can be backfilled. The structure is now permanently stabilized in its new position.
As with any family of products, there are good, better and best. When you're talking about investing in your home's structural stability, it's a good idea to go with the best.
Along with their corrosion-resistant design that includes galvanized steel and a 25-year warranty, the Supportworks Push Pier System also includes a patent-pending external sleeve.
This external sleeve is designed to strengthen the push pier directly below the foundation bracket, which is the most critical location for added structural support.
This external sleeve will strengthen the push pier and prevent the kinking, buckling, and rotation that is commonly seen with other push pier systems.
More about Foundation Stabilization.
Because push piers are driven all the way to bedrock or a stable soil layer, they are often the least risky solution when local soil conditions are unknown. If your goals are as follows, then push piers are the option for you:
However, if you're installing foundation piers on lighter structures such as stoops or decks, a solution such as a helical pier might be more effective than a push pier. This is because the structure may not be heavy enough to drive the push piers to sufficient depth to support your structure.
