Explore this page to understand why slab piers are an indispensable and effective solution for your foundation issues.
What Are Slab Piers?
Slab piers are foundation repair elements exclusively crafted to permanently stabilize settling slab foundations. Distinct from ordinary repair alternatives, slab piers are a permanent measure that allow us to rectify and level your foundation without being too invasive and requiring us to dig up all of your home’s flooring.
By lending support to your foundation, these piers function as firm columns that distribute your home’s weight to more stable ground, preventing further settling and defending against fluctuating soil conditions.
Moreover, slab piers enhance stability and have the potential to restore the house to its initial position. They can also serve a pivotal role in a broader strategy to maintain the structural health of your home, including initiatives such as basement waterproofing and crawl space repair, ultimately safeguarding your home’s longevity.
Signs You Need Slab Piers
Your concrete slab foundation may require stabilization through slab piers if your home exhibits symptoms like:
- Noticeable floor cracks
- Cracks in drywall
- Drywall nail pops
- Uneven or sloping floors
- Doors and windows that stick
- Gaps between floors and walls
- Plumbing leaks
Though seemingly superficial, these signs warn of a deteriorating foundation that demands immediate attention.
