At CLI Concrete Leveling, we use helical or push piers to raise and stabilize your sinking foundation. Helical piers are drilled into the ground until a required amount of torque is achieved. This determines how much weight the ground will hold. A push pier (also known as steel piers) system uses the weight of the structure to push the pipe to the point of refusal or the structure begins to lift. The capacity is then calculated by the force used to push the pipe. After the steel pier is installed the process is the same for both systems. The brackets are mounted to the foundation and the pier and jacks are installed. The structure is then gently raised using the desired amount of jacks at the same time to ensure no further cracking of the foundation. Once the structure is raised to the desired height, the jacks are removed and the soil is replaced and compacted.
CLI Concrete Leveling also offers a wide variety of preconstruction piers to prevent your foundation from sinking and compromising your investment. We install the foundation products which are made by Earth Contact or similar quality products. They are fully galvanized and come in different sizes to maintain our very competitive rates.
