Previously and Poorly Installed Piers Cause Troubles for Oakville Homeowner

Mr. Murray, the owner of a single-story frame house in Oakville, Missouri, had a garage where piers were installed twice prior to 2006 within 3 years of each other.

 

Shallow Pipe/Push Piers Lead to Garage Settling

The first pier project had concrete piers installed to a depth of approximately 6 feet. The second pier project had a round, steel “pipe” or “push” pier installed. These piers require, in part, the counterbalance weight of the structure to assist in the installation process.

Although the company that had installed the steel piers assured the customer that the piers would be installed to “bedrock” they were only installed to a depth of approximately 4 feet.

South St. Louis Homeowner Happy with Installation of Galvanized Helical Piers

Helitech was hired to install galvanized Helical piers, which do not rely on counterbalance weight for installation.

The piers were installed to an average depth of 16-18 feet by placing the drivehead directly on top of the pier and driving the pier to competent load bearing strata.

Helitech completed the installation in 2 days, providing a sound foundation on which the garage could finally rest.
