Orange County, San Diego and Los Angeles, CA
At Dalinghaus Construction of Orange County, our pier and beam foundation specialists highly recommend installing foundation piers to stabilize, repair, and restore a foundation which has been damaged by issues related to foundation settlement and poor supporting soils.
There are several different types of foundation piers; each one is designed to address a different kind of foundation problem. Our Orange County pier and beam foundation technicians install three different kinds of foundation piers: push piers, helical piers, and slab piers.
Foundation Push Piers
Push piers bond the foundation to solid, firm soil or bedrock. The foundation push piers, that we use for our Orange County pier and beam foundation services adhere the base of the foundation using patented brackets that extend through settling and unstable soil layers, transferring the weight of your home to sturdy bedrock or soils.
Foundation Helical Piers
Helical piers are similar to push piers, in that they are attached to the foundation by mounting a bracket.
Foundation helical piers are straight, steel piers that have helical blades welded to each shaft. Helical piers work differently by including rotating blades that go deep into the soil. These can be installed from either inside or outside of your foundation, making it a great solution for most properties.
Slab Pier Systems
Foundation problems often begin because the concrete slab shrinks or settles under shifting soil, resulting in foundation issues. Slab piers re-establish stability by bonding the slab to the stable soil at greater depth. Foundation slab piers are straight steel piers that extend from firm soils deep underground to support brackets directly in contact with the bottom of the slab.
