Foundation Repair with Steel Pressed Pilings
The Steel Pressed Pilings can be used in any area where the concrete pressed pilings can be used. They are also the preferred method in areas where the soil is more sandy or where there are thin stringers of harder strata between clay layers. These stringers may cause a “false refusal point” for a concrete piling. The steel piling can penetrate through these shallow stringers.
Time Required to do Repair: As with the pressed concrete pilings, the average steel piling installation can be completed in one day.
How the Pilings are Installed: The installation process is the same as the processed concrete piling except instead of a concrete cylinder, Structured Foundations Repairs, Inc. will press one foot sections of 2 7/8 O.D. Steel Pipe.
Warranty: Structured Foundation Repairs, Inc. offers a lifetime transferable warranty on the pressed steel pilings. It is our intention to permanently stabilize the settlement of the portion of the foundation where piers are installed.
