Drilled Bell Bottom Pier
// We drill the piers up to a depth of 8’ – 12’ below top of ground depending on the soil condition.
Piers are 3,000 psi solid concrete and 12” in diameter and have a 24” bell to form the footings. Each pier contains four #4 rebar steel placed vertically with 3 strips.
// A platform is attached to the pier for the jack to be placed. Once the structure has been raised as much as it will permit the steel shims will be inserted between the beam and the pier to support the structure.
// Cylinders are 4,000 psi solid concrete and 6” in diameter and 12” long. They are driven to the required depth needed to support the weight of the home. A piling cap will then be positioned on top of the last cylinder driven.
// A hydraulic jack will then be placed on top and to one side of the piling cap with a cylinder placed next to the jack.
Once the structure has been raised as much as it will permit the steel shims will be inserted between the beam and the cylinders to support the structure.
