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 the Houston area is the Pressed Piling method. It is a quick and economical repair solution, and they are installed all over Texas.
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 Dura Lock Piling System. A Dura Pier Certified Foundation Repair Specialist will provide details as they relate to your structure.
Dura Pier’s DuraLock® Piling System is warrantied for the life of the structure. The best technology installed by the best people gives you the best warranty. Compare for yourself!
