In the Dallas area, concrete pressed pilings are commonly used to provide support to house foundations. In addition to being very dependable, concrete pilings can be installed in about a day, which is great if a homeowner needs to have their foundation repaired quickly. To install concrete pressed pilings, workers manually dig a deep hole that goes underneath the home’s grade beam. Next, they install concrete cylinders into the ground with a hydraulic ram until the foundation is adequately supported. Afterwards, workers put concrete caps on the cylinders, lift the house up, and fill the hole back up with dirt. The process is both quick and efficient and may be backed by a warranty, depending on which company you do business with.
