One of these solutions is the installation of a concrete pier system for your Charleston home.
What is a concrete pier system?
Concrete foundation piers are a more economical solution than steel foundation piers. Inserted into the soil surrounding your home, they provide extra foundation support. A concrete pier system differs from helical piers or push piers, which are made from steel. Concrete foundation piers cannot be installed deeply into the soil, so they don’t reach below unstable soil that may have caused the foundation to settle. Due to their more shallow position, they don’t provide the same level of support as other pier support solutions, and because of its composition, concrete will eventually degrade over time. Therefore, concrete foundation piers aren’t a long-term solution for foundation repair and support.
Why choose a concrete pier system?
Given the limitations, why would a concrete pier system from our Charleston foundation stabilization experts be a good solution for your home? One of the main reasons is due to its economic nature. Foundation issues don’t always happen at a convenient time. If longer-term repair solutions are out of your budget, concrete piers may be a good alternative.
