DynaPier Compared to the Offset Steel Pier
When it is time to fix your home’s foundation it is important to make an informed decision to protect your biggest investment. But there are many choices when it comes to foundation piers and with so much information, choosing the correct pier can be a difficult task. So how do you know which pier to choose? We compare our foundation pier to other piers on the market to show homeowners why the DynaPier® is the strongest foundation pier. It is built to last forever, and the technology and engineering behind the DynaPier® is far superior to any other foundation pier on the market.
The offset steel pier is a pier that is commonly used by other foundation companies. Take a look at the comparison between the offset steel pier and the DynaPier®.
The DynaPier® is constructed of steel filled with high-strength concrete which makes it extremely strong. We combined the strength of steel and concrete to create a super pier. The offset steel piers have hollow steel tubing, and are constructed of only steel, so it is not nearly as strong as the DynaPier®.
The DynaPier® is placed directly underneath the foundation, which means loads are transferred through a single vertical axis which alleviates any fail points. With the offset steel pier the loads do not transfer directly onto the pier, therefore the spot directly under the bracket is vulnerable to breaking and will buckle under pressure.
The offset steel pier has a steel bracket with up to a four inch offset which allows for buckling directly beneath the brace.
Most companies that use the offset steel piers use large excavating equipment to install them, which can be invasive to a homeowner’s property and increase the potential for property damage. At Andy Schreiner Construction we do not use any large excavating equipment to install our piers, which means our installation process is not nearly as invasive on the property.
These are just a few of the advantages of our foundation piering system. For more information please contact us for a free estimate.
