Severely Settled Walls will most likely require a steel push pier to lift the foundation up to its original placement. Steel push piers are extremely effective. Because of their heavy nature, they are able to withstand a lot of pressure from heavier buildings. At UMC, customers can choose between our eccentric piers or our concentric piers. This is why it is important to contact a professional so you are making the right decision for your foundation repair.
