Slab Pier System

Slab piers are push piers designed specifically to stabilize and (in some cases) raise slabs that have settled. This type of pier is driven into the soil in the settlement area, deep enough to connect the slab to stable, load-bearing soil or bedrock.

A specially designed bracket connects the top of the pier to the underside of the slab, to stabilize and/or raise the slab back to its original position.

Advantages Of Supportworks Slab Piers:

  • Can extend to great depths to contact stable soil or bedrock
  • Non-destructive repair requiring minimal excavation
  • Completely hidden after installation holes are filled
  • Can help lift a settled slab in addition to stabilizing it, in some cases

Helical Deck Piers

The standard practice of installing poured concrete piers for decks, porches, sunrooms and similar structures has caused plenty of frustration over the years. Poured concrete has more limited installation options, can't be easily corrected, and aren't as durable as steel piers. Helical deck piers are the best alternative to traditional methods because they are fast, effective, and can be installed any time.

Advantages of helical deck piers:

  • Can be installed regardless of frozen ground
  • Steel support brackets are stronger than concrete
  • Minimally invasive installation
  • Deck, sunroom, or other structure can be built immediately after installation
