Foundation repair piers are also known as two-pier foundations. Because it is believed that a foundation is the foundation of any house, foundations are considered the most important component of a house. When a foundation is damaged or broken, the house will not be able to function properly and many times will be prone to collapse.
Piers are foundations that are installed above ground level. Because piers are often used for storing water or other liquids, they must be kept free from corrosion or dirt. Porches and stairs should be built on the top of piers in order to prevent the ground from shifting when the ground is being transported from one place to another. Also, piers are known to keep out muddy water, rodents, and birds.
Foundation repair piers have a number of different styles and shapes. This can be attributed to the numerous materials that are used to manufacture them. Porches, stairs, and any other place that use a foundation are the ones that are most likely to need a foundation repair. In addition, a building that is constructed with poured concrete piers will need foundation repair piers to replace the broken piers that were damaged during the construction process.
There are three main types of foundation repair piers. The first is the “adhesive” type, which is the one that is most frequently seen. Adhesive foundation repair piers consist of a collar that is stretched over the pier which is then sewn to the concrete and cement foundation of the house.
Adhesives are also known as spreaders. When the cement piers are too thick to fit around the collar and still seal it against the walls, the builder will use a small hand-held piece of adhesive on the collar of the piers. The glue that is used in adhesive foundation repair piers is an abrasive that will scratch through the concrete and cement of the foundation. This type of repair pier is usually installed on an outside or patio wall.
The next type of foundation repair piers is the “low-cost foundation repair piers.” These piers do not have a collar at all and they are all about providing a single long link that runs from the top of the pier down to the ground. The method of construction of these piers will be completely similar to the other piers. These piers are most commonly used in homes with oversized foundations that are too short to contain the pier tightly.
Finally, the last type of foundation repair piers is the “low-cost foundation repair piers.” These piers have no collar and the project will only require the amount of time that it would take to put up the other types of piers.
