Pressed Piling Pier Foundation Repair
Pressed Piling Foundation Repair

There are many cons or disadvantages of having a foundation repair company install pressed concrete piers or “piling piers” in your foundation to correct its failure. In Dallas and the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex, pressed concrete piers are generally not recommended due to the high failure rate and limited depth of the pier’s penetration.

Pressed concrete piers are a quick and inexpensive fix that have no long-term benefit to the home owner and their investment. The main benefit of installing this type of foundation repair system is to the foundation company because they are easy to install and work can be completed, in most cases, within one business day. The labor cost of these piers is substantially lower than other proven foundation repair methods.
