Steel push piers are the best choice for homes that need to be lifted when doing foundation repairs. These push piers are driven to rock or load-bearing soils and then can lift a building back to its original state. Drywall cracks can be closed, windows and doors can once again be opened and shut, and exterior brick cracks will go away. The function of steel piers is the support and stabilization of your home’s load-bearing walls as a permanent solution.
Steel piers are often needed when homeowners begin noticing cracks, uneven foundations, or even flooding. Leaning or bowing walls can also be another key indicator. Though they can seem like unrelated problems, these are signs of an unstable foundation and a possible need for steel piers.
Steel piers can permanently fix the problem by providing the support that your home needs. Sinking or settling foundations can be lifted, reducing the risk of flooding or further damage in your home. Installing steel piers in Virginia will save you and your home quite a bit in the long run.
