Micro Piles and Steel Piers
Steel push piers are used for homes that need to be lifted for foundation repairs. They are driven hydraulically into the soil using the structural weight of the building as a reaction force. The function is to support and stabilization of your homes load bearing walls as a permanent solution. Grout Tech offers two designs of steel push piers. Concentric pier, installs directly below the footing or load, the eccentric pier, which installs to the side of the intended load. It’s the application that distinguishes the model of steel pier versus the design of the pier itself.
