Steel piers are considered the premiere piering system in foundation repair. Steel piers go deeper than other piers and are designed to reach load-bearing strata by using the weight of the structure. This allows the pier to rest on the bedrock. The steel pier transfers the weight of the structure from the unstable soil to the steel pier that is standing on the bedrock.
In GL Hunt we have different types of repairing foundations
Our Fort Worth steel beam foundation repair is done in several phases. Once the Field Technician’s repair design is reviewed, installation points are determined surrounding the structure. Once the area is cleared of all shrubs and plants, tarps are laid down to protect the surrounding lawn. A small hole is hand-dug to gain access to where the new piers will be installed.
Once the area is cleared, the hydraulic ram is used to press the lead pipe section and subsequent pipe sections deeper into the load-bearing strata. Driving stops once many layers of pipe have been driven into the soil and a permanent foundation support is established.
Using hydraulic jacks, the interior floor levels are raised to their natural position. Our Fort Worth steel pier foundation repair team moves slowly and systematically to ensure a gentle and uniform lift. The Field Superintendent monitors the lift of the structure to ensure the reaction of the structure and interior elevation readings is accurate and does not cause undue strain on the structure.
Once the structure has been lifted to its natural position, concrete cylinders replace the hydraulic jacks to provide permanent support to the structure. Once the excavated area is filled in, any debris resulting from the repair process will be removed. The foundation is now incredibly secure.
We serve the communities of Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Dallas with steel pier foundation repair and concrete services.
