Supporting MA, RI, CT and New England Foundations

Resistance piers are the preferred method of foundation repair for sinking or settling foundations in New England. Resistance piers are made of steel and they use an L shaped bracket that attaches to the underside of the existing foundation wall. The pier then uses the wall as resistance to push the steel pipe into the ground. The pipe is driven until a required load is achieved, and until the depth is accurate and then the structure begins to lift. Once the pier has reached the suitable bearing capacity we are then able to lift the structure.
