Steel Piers Foundation Repair in Austin Texas by Quality Foundation RepairSteel piers are used to stabilize and/or raise the foundation of your home or business, while preventing further settlement. This is the by far the best way to permanently repair a concrete slab that sits on expansive clay soil in central texas. Other methods still rely on the soil for support!

Steel piers are load tested up to 60,000 (PSI), per square inch, while concrete pressed piles are tested up to 6,000 PSI. Steel piers are best suited for heavier one and two story homes as well as office buildings. Steel can be installed into deeper soils. 
After a minimal amount of excavation, a heavy-duty steel bracket is placed below the load beam to the foundation. Then, a steel pier is hydraulically driven through the bracket, through the soil all the way down to bedrock to create a permanent new foundation support. Adjustments are made until the piers perfectly support your structure. When the foundation is stabilized, the steel pier is welded permanently to the bracket. 

Usually after foundation stabilization, you are able to open and close windows and doors that used to stick. You will also be able to repair cracks in walls, and your furniture will sit level.

They use the weight of your home and the subsequent torque to deliver support. Steel push piers do not use concrete.
