Push Piers For Stabilizing Failing Or Settling NE, IA, and MO Foundations

Graphic render of our warrantied foundation push pier

Supportworks always offers the highest-quality push pier systems. 

Are you in need of an effective way to lift your home back to its proper place with minimal disruption to your property? Supportworks Push Piers may be the answer!

Our systems are made of steel and are driven deep into the soil beneath a foundation to solve settlement problems. Push piers can be installed inside or outside your foundation walls and are not visible once the repair is complete.

In many scenarios, push piers not only stop settlement but lift the foundation back to its original position, closing cracks and improving window and door operation.

Our push pier system is the permanent solution you need. Call us for a free push pier installation quote today! We serve Omaha, Lincoln, Sioux City, and many nearby areas in Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri.

How foundation push pier systems work

To install a push pier system, soil is first removed to expose the foundation footing where the pier will be driven. A heavy-duty steel bracket is then installed below the footing.

Next, rugged, interlocking steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket until bedrock or stable soil is reached. The weight of the home is then transferred through the piers to this load-bearing soil.

Once this has been completed, your foundation contractors may attempt to lift the foundation, elevating the settled foundation back to its original position.

Once the homeowner and installing contractor are satisfied with the stabilization or amount of lift, the soil can be backfilled. The structure is now permanently stabilized in its new position.

Our push pier system

As with any family of products, there are good, better and best. When you're talking about investing in your home's structural stability, it's a good idea to go with the best.

Along with their corrosion-resistant design that includes galvanized steel and a 25-year warranty, the Supportworks Push Pier System also includes a patent-pending external sleeve.

This external sleeve is designed to strengthen the push pier directly below the foundation bracket, which is the most critical location for added structural support.

This external sleeve will strengthen the push pier and prevent the kinking, buckling, and rotation that is commonly seen with other push pier systems.

When to use foundation push piers

Product features

  • Year-round installation
  • Warrantied for 25 Years
  • Galvanized steel design available
  • Below-grade solution -- not visible after completed installation
  • Piers reach greater depths than any other repair option
  • Can lift foundation back to original position

Because push piers are driven all the way to bedrock or a stable soil layer, they are often the least risky solution when local soil conditions are unknown. If your goals are as follows, then push piers are the option for you:

  • You need the best opportunity to lift your home back to its original position.
  • You'd like minimal disturbance during installation.
  • You're looking for a fast, effective installation.
  • Restoring your property value is a priority.

However, if you're installing foundation piers on lighter structures such as stoops or decks, a solution such as a helical pier might be more effective than a push pier. This is because the structure may not be heavy enough to drive the push piers to sufficient depth to support your structure.

Removal and Replacement Of The Foundation

Total Foundation Replacement involves excavating the dirt around the home to expose the damaged foundation. Anything around the foundation, including gardens, foliage, patios, etc. must also be removed. That foundation is them removed and replaced.

This is an invasive, expensive, time-consuming process that should only be done as a last resort. If the wall is standing, we can almost always repair it.

Concrete Underpinning

Before concrete underpinning is installed, the perimeter of the home must be excavated to expose the foundation. Then, larger concrete foundation footings are poured beneath the existing footings.

Most of the time, concrete underpinning does not expend past the 'active zone' and beyond the troubled soils. In other words, the soil beneath these newly enlarged footings may still be moving, causing the home above to continue to move.

Additionally, concrete shrinks as it cures, potentially creating small gaps between the new footing and the old one. When concrete underpinning is used as a solution and the problem continues, it is much more expensive to repair, as all the added concrete will need to be removed and the home will need to be resupported by a new, more substantial foundation system.

Concrete Piers

Before concrete piers are installed, the perimeter of the home must be excavated to expose the damaged foundation. Then, short, blunt concrete cylinders are pushed into the soil on top of one another, held together by a wire. Shims are then placed on top of the uppermost concrete cylinder, and the soil is backfilled.

The blunt concrete cylinders are wide in diameter -- about six to eight inches -- making it difficult to push the sections deep into the ground and past the troubled soil. There is also nothing to guide the direction of the pier, so they may not be installed straight.

Although concrete is a strong material, it will crack under pressure and during temperature changes. If concrete piers were a great idea, all manufacturers of foundation repair products would offer them. Instead, only a few companies struggle with this option.

Helical Piers

A helical pier is a steel pier system that has one or more helical blades welded the shaft of the first section. These shafts are driven into the ground around a foundation until strong supporting soils or bedrock are reached. Then the shaft is connected by a bracket to the foundation, and the weight of the building is transferred down the shaft to the supporting soils below.

Helical piers can be installed from the exterior or interior of your home and provide an opportunity to lift your home back to its original position.

Helical piers can also be effective at closing cracks caused by settlement and improving the operation of doors and windows.

Push Piers

Push piers are made of steel and are driven deep into the soil to bedrock or other stable soil. Push piers can be installed from the exterior or interior of your home and provide an opportunity to lift your home back to its original position, often closing cracks and improving the operation of doors and windows.

Our push piers are made with corrosion-resistant galvanized steel and incorporate a unique external sleeve on the topmost pier section that greatly enhances its strength and durability.
