Before we dive into solutions, let’s first discuss some of the common causes of a sinking foundation.

More times than not, improper construction or unstable soil are to blame.

No matter the cause, a solution is necessary and in this blog post, we discuss how push piers can solve the problem of a sinking foundation.

A push pier is used to stabilize the foundation of a home and is driven through the soil down to bedrock or other stable soil.

Push piers can be installed from the interior or exterior of your home to help lift it back to its original position.

At Advanced Basement Solutions, we believe that hydraulic steel push piers are the best option when repairing a sinking foundation.

The advantages of steel push piers include but aren’t limited to:

  • Installed all the way to load-bearing stratum
  • Complete stabilization of the foundation that inhibits further dropping or settlement
  • Heavy equipment isn’t typically required
  • Depending on the number of piers, installation is relatively quick

A sinking foundation is a major problem that can’t be ignored. Installing steel push piers not only restores your foundation but your peace of mind as well.
