What are Piers and Anchors?

At Foundation Technology, we have an array of repair solutions like foundation wall anchors that can be applied to your specific foundation needs. The piers and anchors Foundation Technology utilizes to repair your foundation are manufactured by Earth Contact Products. ECP is a leader in the industry. Their products are made in the USA. Upon inspection of your foundation, one, or a combination of these foundation anchors and piers may be the appropriate choice for your home or business:

Helical Piers: Helical piers foundation repair is one way to restore safety and stability to your foundation. During repair, helical piers are mechanically “drilled” through the shifting soil to stable, load-bearing strata. After the installation has reached the specified depth and verified capacity, a steel foundation bracket is connected to the ECP helical pier and your home’s foundation.

Wall Anchors: Designed to straighten and strengthen basement and retaining walls, foundation wall anchors are perfect for bowing and leaning walls. As you can see in the illustration, they are drilled into stable earth and anchored to the interior wall of your basement by a plate on the inside.

Push Piers: Push piers, often referred to as resistance piers, are an excellent foundation repair solution for shifting and settling foundations. During the push pier installation process, the piers are driven deep into the soil to competent stratum, or bedrock, to lift and support weak foundations for commercial buildings, brick structures, and residential homes.
