Steel Pier Foundation Repair

Steel Piers for Foundation Repair

Steel piers consist of 2 7/8″ steel pipe segments that are driven to a depth of refusal.  One of the key benefits of a steel pier is that they can typically go deeper than a concrete cylinder pier simply because they are about half the diameter of the concrete cylinders. Steel pipe can also be helpful in driving through rocky soils. Depending on the soils in the area you live and the type of structure you live in, steel piers may be the right solution for you. 

For most home and business owners, the Dura Lock™ XD piling system combines the strength and durability of our Dura Lock™ piling system plus the depth and driving strength of the steel pier

Foundation Repair FAQs

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.

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.

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.
