Poly-Lift Push Piering

Push Piering

What is Push Piering?

Shifting, sinking, and leaking foundations are almost always connected to a soil issue, and push piering is a way to resolve this issue.

Structural steel piers, also known as push piering, are attached to your foundation and driven into the ground, providing strength and stabilization.

Steel piers use the resistance of a stable surface, such as bedrock, to lift and stabilize your home. Because the steel is driven to bedrock and not supported by friction against the existing soil, steel piers provide consistent and reliable results. The piers are installed and load-tested individually, using the weight of your home as a reciprocal force.

THINGS TO KNOW
