King Piers LLC employs the use of its own patented pier that is used as a footing support system to successfully raise a sinking footing back to its correct level elevation. Foundation settlement is due to footing failure; the footing that the foundation wall is set on is sinking which brings the foundation wall down with it. The King Pier system is simply raising the footing back to level, in turn raising the foundation back to where it needs to be. The King Pier is also unique in that it can be installed under most foundation types, including those without a standard concrete footing! We have successfully installed King Piers underneath concrete, block, stone, and brick foundations without causing any additional damage to those areas.
