Engineered Foundation Repair & Underpinning

Settling Foundation Repair | Resistance Piers



Start of Process: The foundation is exposed and the footing chipped flush with the wall to allow for a bracket installation.


The driving assembly is attached and the first pier section hydraulically driven into the ground.


Further sections are added and the assembly is advanced to a strong end-bearing soil/rock stratum.

Resistance Piers are used to stabilize foundations built over poor soils  This piling technology is unique in that it utilizes the weight of the existing structure to advance a piling into the ground.  When dealing with very heavy buildings, resistance piers can develop design strengths in excess of 100,000lbs each.  

Advantages of Resistance Pier Technology

  • 100% field verification of capacities
  • Ability to lift foundation better than helical piles
  • No vibrations/disturbance from installation
  • Installs with portable equipment
  • Low headroom access

Foundation Repair: Resistance piers can also be used to repair and also lift a sunken foundation to help correct the foundation settlement.   When used properly, resistance are an effective method of foundation repair.
