Commercial Push Piers

Matvey Foundation Repair offers expert push pier foundation underpinning services across the Seattle region. We provide reliable solutions to address foundation issues in commercial buildings of all sizes. Whether you're constructing a new building or need to stabilize an existing structure, our push piers offer maximum foundation support and durability. Push piers offer the best solution for foundation stabilization when correcting for foundation settlement. You may experience foundation settlement when the soil beneath your building or structure can no longer support its weight. When this happens, damage can occur, including cracked walls or sticking windows and doors.

How Do Push Piers Work?

Push piers are long, high-strength round steel tubes driven deep through the soil into appropriate load-bearing strata using a hydraulic ram. This method is used to stabilize and lift sinking soil and counteract foundation settlement. Push piers are recommended when load-bearing strata are close enough to the topsoil. Our push pier systems offer high-strength materials, fast and easy installation, no concrete required, and a permanent foundation stabilization solution. If your building is no longer resting in its original position, a push pier system is the best option for restoring its location. A push pier system is perfect for any substantially heavy structure, including two-story homes, commercial buildings, or structures made of brick. The weight from buildings like these can help push the piers into the ground, creating resistance that will bring stability, lift, and leveling to the foundation.

Push Pier Advantages

Our push piers are designed to drive deep into the earth to reach bedrock or solid supporting strata, ensuring a secure foundation for your commercial property. Unlike other foundation solutions, push piers rely on end-bearing, eliminating the need for skin friction and minimizing the risk of foundation settlement. Our portable equipment allows for installation in areas with limited access, ensuring flexibility and efficiency in any environment.

Key Features of Our Push Piers:

  • End-bearing piers for maximum capacity without relying on skin friction
  • Portable equipment for installation in tight spaces
  • Individual load-testing during installation to ensure structural integrity
  • System design allows for lifting of settled structures, restoring them to their original position
  • Factors of safety typically range from 1.5 to 3, ensuring reliability and stability
  • Galvanized pier sections provide added corrosion protection, ensuring long-term durability and performance
  • Their low-friction installation allows them to reach deep into the ground without warping or bending.
