What is Pier Jacking?

Pier Jacking is used to correct foundation problems by stabilizing and bringing the foundation up to its original structured condition.

The Pier Jacking process involves excavating around a foundation wall and exposing the concrete footings. A Pier is driven into the ground beside the footings to solid bering material. This could be 5 ft to 35 ft depending on the soil conditions. A plate is attached to the pier and placed under the footing. A Hydraulic Jack is used to jack up the footing to its original constructed elevation.

The number of piers required depends on the size of the project and the state of its disrepair. Often the problem is not recognized as serious which results in continued movement and increased damage, which may require additional piers and increased cost.
