Steel Push and Helical Piers

Steel Push Piers and Helical Piers

Steel Push Piers and Helical Piers are excellent foundation repair options. Both are intended to find permanent solutions to foundation problems. Our expert contractors at UMC can analyze your foundation and give professional feedback as to which pier option is best suited for you.

concentric steel pier

Steel push piers are heavy tubes that are hydraulically driven through the earth. This system uses the building’s weight to push the pier effectively into the ground. This process, along with using a hydraulic jack pump, aims to position the building or home to its closest original position. Essentially, push piers are driven deep into the soil to repair settling foundations.

helical piers

Helical piers are screwed into the ground instead of pushed. They are hydraulically rotated into the ground until a gauge system determines the proper placement. After the installation has reached the specified depth and verified capacity, a steel foundation bracket is connected to the ECP helical pier and your home’s foundation.

Ultimately, UMC contractors can help you to understand which pier is more optimal for your home or commercial business. Please contact our Waterproofing and Foundations Division today.
