Engineers recommend steel pier designs to stabilize the perimeter of your home or business which may have sustained damage from any number of factors such as; organic soils, shrink and swell clays, poor compaction, improper footer embedment, erosion, or sinkhole damage. In most cases  the structure can be lifted back to a level position. The steel pier’s main function is the support and stabilization of the structure’s load by transferring the weight of the structure off the weaker soils and on to the steel piers.
