Simple Pressed Piling

Foundation Repair

Simple pressed pilings are an economical solution that can be the right repair or prevention method for some home and business owners.  Dura Pier has over 45 years of experience you can rely on to help decide if Simple Pressed Pilings are the right solution for you.

Simple Pressed Pilings

Most homeowners choose our long-lasting Dura Lock Piling System, but Dura Pier Foundation Repair does install the Simple Pressed Piling.

The most common foundation repair method in Texas is the Pressed Piling method. It is a quick and economical repair solution. 

Pressed pilings are composed of precast concrete cylinders installed by digging a hole under the house and then, by using the weight of the home as the driving force, the cylinders are driven into the ground. However, without connecting one cylinder to the next, this type of piling will not resist lateral forces. Over time, the cylinders may become misaligned, and no amount of adjustments will provide a lasting repair.   

For homeowners planning to stay in their home, Simple Pressed Pilings are not the right solution for foundation repair simply because they are often not installed properly and cannot be warrantied to provide long-term value. For these customers we recommend our more robust Dura Lock® Dura Lock™ XD piling systems. A Dura Pier Certified Foundation Repair Specialist will provide details as they relate to your structure.

Yes, all our Dura Lock® Pilings are warrantied for the life of your home, and the warranty transfers to all future owners. Our warranty is a simple one-page document that doesn’t contain any fine print.

Our warranty is one of the few left out there in the industry that doesn’t contain language to void or cancel the warranty for sewer leaks, or if the warranty isn’t transferred to the new owner within 30 days. This warranty is backed by a company in business for over 45 years and with an A+ rating from the BBB.

We are proud to be the 3rd generation serving the major metropolitan area of Texas including Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston & San Antonio, and we are in the process of training the 4th generation.

Dura Pier offers cost-effective options for budget friendly-options. Our team also offers financing solutions including 0% interest for 12 months with Enerbank!. Generally speaking, most jobs cost anywhere from $3500-8000. Our warranty guarantees our worry, so you won’t have to pay more down the road.

The best method has often been defined as the one that requires the least amount of maintenance. You don’t want a pier or piling system that needs re-adjustment every two or three years, leaving you with constant repair expenses inside your home. As you compare systems, keep in mind that our soil shrinks, swells and shifts with Texas’s ever-changing weather patterns. The best foundation repair method will be the one that has the best ability to resist moving with the soil.

The straighter the pilings are driven into the ground, the better the soil friction they will attain. The better the soil friction, the longer they will last.

Our Dura Lock® system is the only method that actually connects and tensions each and every concrete cylinder as they are driven into the ground. This allows proper alignment to be achieved and retained, allowing the optimum amount of “soil friction” possible to be attained.

Yes, we have $2 million in general liability, and all our workers are covered by Texas Workman’s Compensation Insurance. Certificates will be provided upon request.

Generally, we will not want to adjust old piers from a contractor that has gone out of business or voided your warranty.  More than likely they’ve gone out of business because the number of warranty claims that had received exceeded their ability or desire to honor those warranties, and that is likely because they didn’t do a proper job in the first place.  Many companies will void your warranty because they know their piers aren’t made to last like our Dura Lock pilings are.  In rare cases we’ll make an exception and adjust existing piers.  If we do that, we may also be able to offer you a warranty for those piers to replace the warranty another company voided or will no longer honor.
