It is common for buildings of all types to need foundation repair at one moment or another. Even earlier if the foundation is not done as per code standards.
More than a few agree, including structural as both as geotechnical engineers, with our opinion that a Press Pile or Push Pile is almost always a useless type of foundation repair.
You would ask why so many of them agree so easily or why in so many numbers? That would be easy to explain and even without the use of complicated mathematical calculus. Due to the fact that the pres/push pile consists in pushing a 6” in diameter x 12” in length concrete pile below the existing foundation and into the soil. The building code is clearly not respected, due to the fact that the code stipulates that the diameter is to be 8” and should be enacted as law. And the piles are pushed until driving until refusal that is until a harder soil is reached and after that the hydraulic jack will lift the existing foundation of the building.
Do you want a “healthy” and sound foundation for your building? We offer you Foundation Repair information at our website and the best solution for this at Austin Foundation Repair.
