Concrete Piers

WHAT ARE CONCRETE PIERS? 

For homes and light commercial buildings, concrete piers are concrete columns that are formed by pouring liquid concrete into holes  drilled into the ground.

 

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF CONCRETE PIERS?

  1. They can be designed to carry virtually any load.
  2. The cost for a soils report is typically from $750 to $1,000.  Which will cost from $350 to $700.

IS THERE A WARRANTY?

Advanced Foundation Repair offers a transferable 10 year warranty on its concrete piers.  There are no ifs, ands, or buts; the warranty remains valid for up to 10 years as long as it is transferred from owner to owner.

 

HOW DO I KNOW THE WARRANTY WILL BE GOOD?

Advanced Foundation Repair belongs to the Texas Foundation Warranty Trust.  Advanced pays the Texas foundation Warranty Trust a fee for every job that is completed.  In exchange, the Trust backs each job for which a fee is paid.  With nearly one million dollars in assets, the Trust will be here for the long run.

 

HOW LONG DO CONCRETE PIERS LAST?

It is simple, concrete piers will last as long as your concrete foundation.

 

HOW ARE THEY INSTALLED?

The installation process is simple.

  1. In each location where a pier is going to be installed, a hole is drilled down to the target depth, generally between 12 and 20 feet below the surface of your slab.  Each hole is typically 12 inches in diameter.
  2. Next, a set of reinforcing steel bars are tied together and lowered into the hole.
  3. The concrete is allowed to cure or harden for 7 days.
  4. When all of the piers are hardened, hydraulic jacks are placed on the piers and are then used to lift your foundation.
  5. Once your foundation is lifted, steel and concrete spacers are placed on the piers to support your foundation, and the hydraulic jacks are removed.
  6. The final step is to cover the piers and clean up.

WHAT IF I NEED PIERS IN MY HOUSE?

Concrete piers can be installed by cutting holes in your floor, digging down beside the interior grade beams,and then drilling to the target depth.  Of course, this is terribly messy, and can destroy expensive tile and wood floors.  If the depth of a pier is greater than the height of your ceiling, then each pier hole must be drilled with a shaft that can be dismantled and reassembled as needed.  This is very costly.

I can't too highly recommend this company. I had work done of my foundation by another company several years ago. That work did not resolve the problem, and that company did not fix. Advanced was recommended to me by mother, who said they were the best in the business. I agree! They were polite, professional, charged reasonable prices, and did excellent work. They also have a strong guarantee that is backed by a trust. I can't imagine why you'd use any other company.read more

Advanced Foundation repair is the only way to go! The engineer, Eric was kind, helpful and informative! The crew under Haynard's watch was unbelievably considerate. The crew was in and out of our house for 5 days. Everyone of them were happy even in the 90 degree weather. They work hard and were very polite. If you saw my house now you would never even know they were here. They cleaned up every night and on the last day it looked like new! Very thankful to have been able to work with them.read more

Advanced recently performed our foundation repair and did a fantastic job! The job took four days and throughout the process, the workers were on time each day, were kind and courteous. They left our house clean each day and took great care in making my wife and newborn comfortable during the repair. They came back out to make adjustments, as was expected, and I am more than pleased with the results. Thanks to Juan Martinez, Miguel Mata and Ernesto Alvarato for doing everything I requested. I highly recommend Advanced Foundation Repair, they know what they are doing.read more
