How Push Pier Systems Work

Foundation systems are complex, and sometimes require repair and additional support. After all, the foundation is the most important part of any structure. When they begin to show signs of failure, it’s important to address the issue quickly to prevent further damage. With a professional and experienced commercial foundation repair team in Tampa on the job, fixing foundation issues and creating a stable foundation can be a relatively simple and unobtrusive process. Our entire crew at LRE Foundation Repair is well trained and knowledgeable in all aspects of push pier system installation for your Tampa home. 

We use the Supportworks Push Pier System, a reinforced push pier system that ensures stability and provides an extra level of support. As a Supportworks contractor, our commercial foundation repair team has extensive knowledge and experience in installing this proven system to stabilize buildings that are sinking or settling across the state of Florida.

During installation, push piers are connected to the bottom of the building to hold it in place and provide support. When they are installed, they are pushed all the way down to the bedrock below the foundation. This allows the system to remain stable, even with shifting or eroding soil. Once the piers are installed, they are connected to the foundation, providing reliable and lasting support for the structure. Push piers can be used for foundation support for residential and commercial buildings of all sizes, and hold strong even during the wetter months we have in Florida.

When installed in your home in Tampa, a push pier system can permanently halt the sinking of the building into the soil underneath.

Push piers connect the house to stable, load-bearing soil or bedrock. Soil with poor load-bearing capacity can give way under the weight of a house. To solve settlement problems, steel push piers are pushed, or driven, until they reach stable soil.
