Push Piers vs. Helical Piers: Which Is Right for You?

Your home’s foundation is settling and you are looking for a solution, but you are not sure whether Push Piers or Helical Piers are right for you. In this video we will compare push piers vs. helical piers to help you determine what might be best for your home’s needs.

A helical pier is a steel shaft with screw-like plates on the end. This pier is screwed through the ground outside of your home until it hits stable, undisturbed soil. The pier has a steel bracket that is positioned under your foundation’s footing, much like the seat of a chair, to give the wall support and hold it in place. This bracket allows the pier to leverage the resistance between the deep solid ground at the bottom of the pier and your home.
