Concrete Pressed Piers
We Only Use the Best in Foundation Repair Methods
When it comes to foundation repair, there is a myriad of ways to attack your specific problem and fix it for good. Methods such as helical piers, poured footings, high-density polyurethane foam, and even mud jacking are available to North Texas homeowners and commercial business owners, and they all have their advantages and disadvantages.
In our expert opinion, however, there is no more permanent way to repair a foundation than with concrete pressed piers.
What are concrete pressed piers?
Concrete pressed piers are pre-cast structural supports made entirely of concrete that are then pressed downward into the ground and under your foundation using a hydraulic jack. Concrete has been around for centuries. It’s all around us, it’s heavy, and it’s capable of carrying a tremendous amount of weight. This is why RS Foundations will almost always defer to this tried-and-true method of foundation repair for both residential and commercial properties when the situation calls for it.
Pressed Piers are driven through the existing problematic soils around and under the slab until the frictional buildup is so great that the structure is lifted and supported. The way to ensure the Lifetime Warranty is to drive piers past the active zone of movement in your soil. Concrete pressed piers are designed to do exactly that.
Additional benefits of concrete pressed piers include:
- The ability to withstand moisture and erosion
- Not allowing foundations to sink or settle
- Shorter installation periods and less cost than other materials
- The ability to reach a deeper depth than most other methods
- It is less abrasive on your landscape
Bottom line, even though there is a slew of options when it comes to fixing your home, concrete pressed piers are the most widely-used method of foundation repair in the country. This is a particularly common method of repair in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where the majority of homes are built upon expansive clay soil that reacts unpredictably to extreme seasonal changes.

"Michael from RS Foundations came to my home in Forney to givr a foundation estimate. I was nervous knowing that these types of repairs can get expensive fast. I was fortunate that I did not need any foundation work, and Michael was completely honest about that fact, and gave me some foundation watering solutions! He was extremely professional and friendly, kept me informed the entire time he was taking measurements. Obviously my situation is a good one, but you can be sure they will be honest with you, which is worth its weight in gold!! Definitely recommend!!"
