Foundation Resoration Piering
Restoring an old building for commercial purposes? Piering can help.
When restoring an old building, you want to bring the building fully into compliance and security, to ensure damage and costs down the road. One way to help prevent foundation problems is to take advantage of the renovation to install a piering system to stabilize the foundation against settling caused by unstable soil. Our commercial foundation repair experts can help you ensure that your renovated building’s foundation works as well as it did when it was first poured.
While piering is most commonly used to correct a destabilized foundation, more and more people are choosing to install piering in new construction, in order to prevent those problems down the road. A restoration is another opportunity to utilize preventive piering. At any point, unstable soil can give way and allow a foundation to sink and become unlevel. Piering grounds your foundation in more stable soil deep in the ground much less likely to settle. The result is a stable foundation for your commercial building for decades to come.

How Des Piering Work?
Piering or underpinning is accomplished by driving long steel shafts or piers into the ground until they hit bedrock or stable soil strata. The piers are then attached to the foundation tying them to that stability. Renovated buildings have older foundations, more susceptible to problems, and this sort of piering can help protect your commercial building from those problems, letting you continue your business uninterrupted by structural deficiencies.
