Grade Beam Lifting and Stabilization in NE Oklahoma
Step 3: The concrete or steel pressed piers are installed under the grade beam of the foundation. Using a hydraulic ram, the first 1′ section is driven into the ground, and the next 1′ section is stacked on the first. The process is continued until the piers are driven to refusal, or maximum depth. Once the piers are driven to bedrock/stable soil, they are capped off using concrete blocks. On two or more story structures, double piers are installed to support the weight of the structure.
Step 5: All the holes are back-filled, concrete breakouts are patched and plants and shrubs re-planted. Work area is cleaned and any cracks in mortar and brick are filled to match the original.
