JES Slab Piers are used for homes that are built on a concrete slab foundation. The piers are installed into a deep, stable soil to level and stabilize your home, and lift the concrete slab and interior walls.
The Slab Pier installation offers a life-long, underpinning solution with minimal mess and stress.
Why Use Slab Piers for Settlement Repair?
Slab piers are designed to be driven deep into the earth, bypassing soils that are ill-suited to support weight, so that your floor can be supported by strong, competent earth. Slab piers also provide an opportunity to lift your concrete slab back to its original position, often closing cracks and eliminating tripping hazards.
Fix Your Cracked Concrete Foundation With Slab Piers
A settling concrete slab can cause major structural problems in a home. An individual may notice signs such as trip hazards, cracks in drywall, and doors that do not open and close properly, all of which indicate a slab settlement problem.
Slab settlement problems are typically caused by changing soil conditions under the slab. Drying and shrinking of soils due to HVAC systems is one of the most common causes, along with soil consolidation due to poorly compacted fill soils during construction.
No matter what the cause, a sinking slab can cause significant damage and is something that needs to be permanently repaired. Some homeowners think that removing and replacing the slab is the solution to fix the problem, without realizing how costly, messy, and disruptive it is to your home. Because the real problem is with the compaction of the soil rather than with the slab itself, the same problem is likely to occur again.
Other solutions such as mudjacking, only add weight to the problem and are unable to reach deep, competent soils in order to support the slab permanently.
