This is the porch that needed to be stabilized with Push Piers in the ground.
To give access to the footer, holes were dug out. After installed they were back filled.
This is the attached bracket for the Push Piers to be driven into.
Once the bracket was securely in place, the piers were hydraulically driven deep within the soil below. This transfers the weight of the porch onto the piers.
In Squirrel Hill a front porch had slowly been falling away from the rest of the home. In other words, the porch was settling. Homeowner Elizabeth wanted to remodel the porch so she called Baker’s to fix the problem first.
Service Advisor Tom Eckersley conducted the free estimate. He proposed 9 Push Piers be installed along the porch. The piers are installed by attaching a bracket to the footer so to hydraulically drive galvanized steel piers into the load-bearing soil below. The piers are designed to transfer the weight of the porch onto the piers for stabilization.
