Push Piers

About

Push piers from Oneil Concrete Construction are used to stabilize and raise buildings that are experiencing settlement problems. Some of the most common signs that you may have some foundation problems that need to be addressed include:

  • Chimney pulling away from structure or leaning/tilting
  • Vertical cracks in the foundation walls – gaps in the mortar joints
  • Cracked or sinking concrete slabs
  • Concrete stairs or stoops that are cracking or sinking
  • Cracks in stucco or brick on a home’s exterior
  • Windows or doors that won’t open and close properly

Solution

In order to fix a foundation and prevent further damage, we can install piers. Piering or underpinning a foundation is the process whereby we give it additional support and can even raise a structure back to its original position. Often times, as soon as a structure is raised, windows will once again function, and doors will open and close as well. The piering process is usually a day or two job and causes very minimal damage to the landscape in most cases. Our piering system is patented and proven to work.
