after installation.

• A longer, stronger warranty.

PRESSED STEEL PIERS

Piers will usually reach greater depths than concrete piers because steel is smooth This method utilizes interlocking steel segments instead of concrete segments. Steel and its diameter is smaller so it does not generate surface friction as quickly as pressed concrete piers. In some instances a ring is attached at the bottom of the first. This method utilizes interlocking steel segments instead of concrete segments. Steel pier that is slightly larger than the piers themselves. This ring cuts a larger opening creating even less surface friction allowing penetration to greater depths.

Steel piers are usually pressed along the outside edge of the foundation and not directly under it like concrete piers. Instead a bracket is attached to the top segment of the pier that reaches under the foundation in order to provide support.

Pros
1. Requires less soil removal than concrete piers
2. Can reach greater depths than concrete piers
3. Can be installed in less time than concrete piers

Cons
1. Pier is not directly under foundation
2. Steel is corrosive and over time can become weakened
3. Higher cost
