When it comes time to fix your home’s foundation, you need to make an informed decision in order to best protect your biggest investment. However, there are many options to choose from when it comes to foundation support, and with so much information, choosing the best one can be difficult! So, how do you know which support will be best for your particular home’s needs?
In the content below, we will compare our PIERMAN foundation pier to other iconic piers on the market to provide homeowners with useful information about our piering services. Our foundation pier is built to last forever, and its technology and engineering are superior to any other pier on the market.
Main Points Of The Piering Systems Comparison
The PIERMAN piering system is commonly used by other foundation companies and, compared to the offset steel pier, has several advantages. First, it is more durable and resistant to corrosion. Second, it has a wider base, which makes it easier to install. Lastly, our exclusive piering system is easier to adjust, making it perfect for both large and small projects.
Other, less effective systems, may call for the removal of large pieces of the foundation footing to make room for installation. However, the PIERMAN system is installed by way of powerful hydraulics from directly underneath the foundation, being driven into the earth until it reaches load-bearing strata. Piering systems that are not driven deep enough, or cannot evenly carry the load of the foundation, cause a high risk for foundation failure in the future.
With the offset steel pier, loads are not transferred directly onto the pier, which prevents the spot directly under the bracket from becoming vulnerable to breaking and stress fractures. Additionally, the offset steel pier has a steel bracket with a four-inch offset, which allows for buckling directly beneath the brace.
How Do I Know If My Home Needs Foundation Piering Solutions?
Have you noticed any cracks in your foundation, especially ones wider than a quarter inch? Do your doors or windows stick or become difficult to open and close? Have you noticed gaps between your walls and the floor or ceiling? Is your chimney leaning or tilting?
These could all be signs that your home’s foundation is settling and may need reinforcing through foundation piering solutions. It’s important to have a professional assess the situation to determine if this is the case.
