Push piers are different from helical piers in a few ways. Helical piers are almost like screws because of how they are shaped, and can be installed in individual points. Push piers are put in place to make sure that your entire foundation is covered and reinforced. That’s why if you have widespread problems with your foundation, that a professional will usually recommend using a push pier to fix the entire problem in one go. When you install push piers, your home is lifted back to its original point. If you have a problem with foundational sinking, as if the ground is essentially giving up on your home, then the chances of one of our experts in advising you to have a push pier installed in your home are very very high.

How much do push piers cost?
Sinking foundations are a problem that all of us have to deal with a little bit. Because of how the earth swells and sinks as water comes and goes into the system, the ground that we build our homes on also swell and sink. One of the ways that we try to prevent too much movement in the earth, since we can’t exactly control the weather, is by properly sifting the soil that your home is built on, removing any large rocks and debris, then packing the dirt down as much as we physically can. When the ground is almost completely solid, only then do we start with the foundation that your home is built on. With all the work that you put into the ground prep before even actually putting any kind of structure down, you’d think that there wouldn’t need to be any added stress to the foundation as time goes on. But that just isn’t the truth. SOmetimes the contracts that we hire don’t do a good enough job sifting a flattening the dirt, and the rest of the structure pays for that mistake later in a lot of damages, including sinking foundations. You might think that a sinking foundation isn’t all that bad, because it’s just a little lower than when you first moved into the home right? What’s missing is that when your foundation sinks, so does the rest of your home, and that movement often results in all kinds of damages. Those damages include: cracking, possible flooding, and possible complete foundation failure. These damages are critical, and could spell out a lot of extra funds that you would have to dole out if the problem isn't taken care of as soon as possible. If these problems are left unchecked, then you could not only be at the risk of flooding, which could lead to molding and other things that are very dangerous, but you could also be at risk of your entire home collapsing in on itself. If you notice any bowing of your walls, weakening floors above foundation areas, or cracking in your ceiling, then you need to call one of our professionals at Denver Foundation Repair, as soon as possible before even more damage is accrued. Our Denver CO. foundation experts can talk you through the entire repair process, and what you could do to help prevent any kind of problems like this from happening again.

How many foundation piers are needed?
Again, this is something that depends wholly on how much damage your foundation has. Of course, the more damaged foundation, the more piers you’ll need to get the job done properly. The sooner that the problems are discovered however, the less likely you are going to need a lot of piers to fix the foundational damage. Only an expert in foundation repairs can properly assess the amount of repairs that you could need, but sometimes the jon can be done in as little as one or two installed piers. Again, it is a good idea to consult the contractor before you have any piers installed, to make sure that you’re getting the right amount for the job. Repairs are completely determined by the damage that the home has gone through, so if your foundation only has a few vertical cracks here and there, then maybe the best option for you is to just have an epoxy solution applied to the cracks themselves, before you get all wrapped up in an extreme repair like installing piers on your home. Knowing the right repairs for your home can be confusing though, especially when there are so many conflicting ideas on the internet about what to do if you have even the smallest little crack, let alone something as serious as a sinking foundation.
