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.
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!
