Foundation Push Pier Solution
Foundation push piers repair and stabilize sinking or settling foundations.
Symptoms include things like a tilting chimney, jammed windows or doors and a sinking, cracking, buckling or uneven floor, especially in the basement, caused by unstable soil under the foundation or a foundation that wasn’t set correctly.
Push pier systems are usually installed on the outside, where soil is excavated to access the foundation footing, but can be installed inside where a small area of the basement floor will be cut out. They are first anchored with pier brackets that extend under the entire foundation wall, shifting weight onto the push pier and leveraging its push into the ground.
Push pier sections, or extensions, are made of corrosion-resistant galvanized steel that fit together to reach depths where they can find firm footing in load-bearing soil or bedrock. Thrasher's patented Push Pier System includes an external metal sleeve that extends from the bottom of the bracket, reinforcing this critical point and preventing common issues seen in installations that can cause push pier systems to buckle and rotate.
Once installed, the push pier system can lift and stabilize the attached foundation to alleviate it from sinking.
