Done Right Foundation Repair is one of the only companies in Texas that offers 5 different types of foundation repair. Austin’s most common foundation problems are no match for the quality and expertise of the Done Right Foundation Repair team.
Concrete press piles are concrete columns that are driven into the soil below your foundation. Movable concrete cylinders are stacked underground to allow limited soil movement while maintaining a usable support structure.
Concrete piles must be pushed deep underground to be effective. They are topped with a cap piece that supports an additional two concrete cylinders that help to distribute the weight from the house evenly to the underground support.
Concrete press piles are so common thanks to:
Steel piers are effective at mitigating the problems of settlement thanks to their solid steel design. Heavy-duty steel brackets are driven by hydraulic pressure into the soil below the footing of the foundation.
The weight of the home will then be distributed through the piers and into stable soil or bedrock, which will provide permanent support.
The piers are interlocking, which provides additional support and a wider surface area through which weight can be distributed.
These piers are great for:
Masonite blocks sit on the surface of the soil and are supported by additional exterior beams that are usually made from wood. An interior beam typically runs down the center of the home.
The result is a narrow crawlspace below the home where the supports slowly settle into the soil. However, poorly constructed block & base foundations are common and need repair often.
Cast-in-place piles are beams that have a steel beam core and a concrete-based outer structure. This structure allows for greater amounts of vibration and shifting before damage occurs.
Small homes and patios benefit from a slightly more movable structure with the support of steel.
