Press Piling is a method to be used when there is little to no bedrock. The clay soils provide resistance/friction as concrete cylinders are "pressed" in series one on top of another. The weight of the foundation provides a base off of which to drive the pilings into the ground. Most slab foundations in the coastal region of South Texas or where clay content is high would benefit from press pilings.Benefits
Reserved for Pier & Beam Structures, this method is best utilized when overhead access is limited for a drilled pier. With a concrete base below the surface, the pier is formed up with metal reinforcement, which is tied into hurricane straps and bolted to the wooden foundation. Wood beams and joists are generally inspected for damage, and a spot-leveling is required after replacing piers.Deep Drilled Piers
Where applicable, deep-drilled bell bottom piers can be installed. This method is utilized when areas of the structure do not warrant the use of a piling. Drill piers are commonly used prior to the construction of a new foundation on pier and beam structures where access from above is available or in situations where the foundation may have not been constructed properly.Polyurethane Leak Free prime Resin
