As part of the international Supportworks network, Midwest Foundation Repair has access to the highest quality foundation products available. Our foundation piers have been engineered for minimal disturbance to your home and a fast, effective installation. Our foundation push piers are installed by one of our in-house crews of foundation professionals, who are fully trained through Supportworks, Inc.
Each of our foundation pier systems is available in both black steel and galvanized steel, which allows for long-term strength and corrosion resistance. All of our pier systems are installed year-round with a 25-year manufacturer's warranty, as well as our own performance and installation warranty.
A helical pier owes its name to the helical plates welded to the pier shaft. These plates help to pull the pier into the soil during installation and provide anchoring strength as the weight of the foundation or structural element is transferred to the pier. Additional sections can be added to the pier until it reaches the necessary depth. Helical piers have a great deal of versatility for stabilizing and restoring foundations and masonry elements.
These rugged steel push piers feature a patent-pending external sleeve that strengthens the pier at the critical tension point below the bracket. Push piers are installed next to the footings and attached with a heavy duty steel bracket. Soil is backfilled around the piers once stabilization and lifting is complete to finish the installation. This is the best foundation repair option available when soil conditions are unknown, providing a permanent solution for your settlement issues.
Slab piers are push piers designed specifically to stabilize and (in some cases) raise slabs that have settled. This type of pier is driven into the soil in the settlement area, deep enough to connect the slab to stable, load-bearing soil or bedrock. The helical blades anchor to the soil as the pier is essentially screwed into the ground. A specially designed bracket connects the top of the pier to the underside of the slab to stabilize and/or raise the slab back to its original position. Grout is pumped in to fill the void created under the slab, and then concrete is poured over the holes created for installation.
The standard practice of installing poured concrete piers for decks, porches, sunrooms and similar structures has caused plenty of frustration over the years. Poured concrete has more limited installation options, can't be easily corrected, and aren't as durable as steel piers. Helical deck piers are the best alternative to traditional methods because they are fast, effective, and can be installed any time.
