Push Piers

Push Pier

American Foundation & Basement Repairs, LLC offers foundation repair services utilizing push piers from Foundation SupportWorks. These push piers offer a fast, long-lasting, and warranted solution which is possible year-round. There are a variety of disturbing signs a homeowner could encounter that indicate a foundation settlement issue. Foundation Supportworks' Push Pier System is the best solution for your home in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Asheville, Johnson City, or Cookeville.

Cracks on the outside of of your house, foundation cracks, cracks in drywall on inside walls, doors and windows sticking or not opening up, and/or your chimney tugging away from your home are problems that point to the same issue - foundation settlement.

In a perfect world, every home would be constructed on solid, stable soil with more than enough bearing capacity to support the weight of your home and everything inside of it. But as some homeowners discover, homes are often constructed in unsuitable locations, where the soil has characteristics that can cause foundation problems like cracking, bowing, settling and shifting. This is why our foundation repair company offers foundation repair services for settlement through the use of a reliable piering system.

Push Pier Conditions: Foundation Settlement

Push Piers

Foundation settlement issues are usually brought on by changing soil conditions around and under your house. Wetting and softening of soils, drying and shrinking of soils, and also soil layers compacting beneath added structural weight may all result in changing soil conditions which provoke your house to move, sink and settle.

The Installation Process

To properly fix a foundation correctly, our push pier installation involves making use of tough steel pier sections, pushed deep into the earth's soil, to shift the weight of your house onto capable, load-bearing strata or bedrock.

Not only does this foundation piling forever stabilize your home's foundation, it also offers the best chance to lift your home back to its original, upright position. Installation of the Foundation Supportworks' Push Pier System is all under grade, meaning the system itself won't be noticeable after installation to take away from the attractiveness of your house.

Installations can be carried out year-round and don't require the utilization of heavy equipment, which could harm your yard and landscaping. Please call American Foundation & Basement Repairs at 877-784-5636 to learn more about our push piers or to schedule an appointment for a consultation with our foundation professionals.
