The soils in Topeka, KS are tough and can cause problems for home foundations. The soil combined with the climate can cause foundations to crack and settle over time. At Andy Schreiner Construction, we use DynaPier® foundation piers to repair home settlements. The reasons are simple. The DynaPier® has several distinct advantages over the competition that cannot be matched. The DynaPier® works no matter how tough the soil is.
For homeowners that need foundation repair it is important to learn about the repair company that you want to hire. It is also important to know about the types of piers the company uses. After all, these piers are going to protect your biggest investment.
Advantages of the DynaPier®
For example, the DynaPier® is one of the only pier system on the market that is constructed of both concrete and steel. It uses the strength of both to create a super pier. It is installed directly beneath the footing. This means that the foundation will not be weakened by drilling into it. Several companies drill holes into the footing which can compromise the structural integrity of the footing. Another benefit is that the DynaPier® is pressed all the way to bedrock or hard strata, once it reaches the point of resistance. Meaning the pier is pressed until it can’t be pushed any further. Most other companies use piers that rely on the friction from the soil to hold them in place. When the soil shrinks and expands due to weather conditions these piers settle and so does the house they’re supposed to be holding up.
It’s easy to see why our piering system is superior to our competition. If your foundation shows signs of settling, like cracks in the walls and ceilings, doors and windows that stick or unlevel floors. Give Andy Schreiner Construction a call.
