Foundation Push Piers in Utah
Underpinned, Secured, and Lifted: Foundation Push Piers
A push pier is a column of steel tubing that is hydraulically driven down to the bedrock, or stable soil strata. Piers are then anchored to the structure with brackets. The weight of the structure acts as a counterweight, this resistence keeps them in place resulting in a stable, secure foundation for your building, protected against future settling or sinking. And for the most stable, secure results, we use the very best system on the market: the Magnum Push Piering System.
Push piers are advantageous when lifting and repairing a heavy building’s foundation and/or limited space installs. The heavier structure works well with this system because the piers are hydraulically pushed into the ground utilizing the building’s weight. Two-story homes, brick structures, and commercial buildings provide the needed resistance mass. For projected with limited space, push pier systems can be ideal as all equipment is handheld, the space required can be as small as 3'x3'.
Full Scale Load Tests with Each Installation
Instead of requiring separate load testing, with Magnum push piering, each pier is load tested in the installation process itself. The brackets attached to the foundation are rigorously tested and the same testing is performed on the pipes as they are driven into the ground. The anchors used to install the bracket to the footing are tested to ensure adequate load bearing capacity on the pier and the bolts that connect the pier to the bracket are also tested extensively to ensure they can handle much more than the strain placed on them.
With verification on each and every pier installed, our Utah foundation repair experts are able to safely and easily ensure the success of the piering project.

Commercial & Residential Utah Foundation Piers
Our strong and sturdy push piering system provides more than 30 tons of support capacity. That makes it sufficient even for many commercial and residential structures alike.
Foundation sinking and settling doesn’t usually happen in a completely uniform way. Some parts of the foundation sink or settle more than others. In order for the foundation to provide a stable base for the structure and evenly distribute the structure’s weight, the foundation must not only be underpinned, but be lifted the right amount at each pier to be totally level again.
