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 Houston’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 DuraLock® 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.

Houston Area Soils

Houston area soils consist mainly of highly expansive clays called Black Gumbo and are continually shifting, shrinking, and swelling with the variations in the soil’s moisture content. Long periods of drought, followed by days or weeks of rain, cause havoc to all foundation systems, especially slab-on-grade. The Dura Pier Dura Lock® Piling System is warrantied against future slab settlement due to the constant soil moisture fluctuations Houston is known for. Having installed our Dura Lock® Piling System on thousands of Houston area homes over the last 20 years, we can say with confidence there is no other product on the market as durable as our Dura Lock® Piling System. It is because of our unique system that we can offer the best warranty in Houston, bar none. We invite you to compare us against anyone.

If your home was not built with piers or pilings, inevitably, you will eventually need foundation repair. With all the foundation repair companies to choose from, selecting the right company will probably be the most daunting task. As you compare, be sure to ask what type of foundation repair system they use. Many systems are on the market, and it is up to the homeowner to compare more than just price.

Piling systems that use unconnected concrete blocks, while initially less expensive, will require readjustments much more often and will eventually fail. Initial savings quickly evaporate when you have to redo the work that wasn’t done right the first time. With the Dura Lock® Piling System, foundation repairs are longer lasting which will help protect your investment and your peace of mind.
