ConCrete Piers

Slab Foundation Repair

While not used nearly as often as steel piers, hydraulically driven Concrete Piers remain a viable option for certain, specifically indicated slab foundation repairs. These pre-cast columns of concrete are approximately 6” in diameter and 10” long per segment. The segments are hydraulically driven into the ground under your home to raise, support and stabilize your foundation. Concrete piers require shimming with thin steel shims to level your home and achieve maximum stability.

Don’t Be Alarmed

In most cases, signs of foundation movement aren’t an emergency. But they do warrant inspection and attention from foundation repair specialists.

What to Look For

Foundation damage isn’t always obvious. Look for these telltale signs:

Cracks in the floor

Separation along exterior walls

Stuck windows and doors

Ill-fitting trim and molding

Uneven floors

Cracks in brick or stone and mortar

Offset concrete

How Hydraulically Driven Concrete Piers Work



Oklahoma Foundation Repair will assess your foundation for settling, heaving, separation or any other issues and determine whether these indications call for attention or action.



We will determine the number and location of piers to be driven around the perimeter of your home’s foundation, then present you with our recommendation and estimated costs for these repairs.



Our team will excavate earth as needed to reach the base of your home’s foundation, where piers will be placed.


Pier Driving

Concrete Piers are placed and hydraulically driven deep into the earth to raise, support and stabilize your home’s foundation as needed. In Oklahoma, concrete piers are driven deep into the clay substrata to “the point of refusal.”



Measurements are taken and adjustments with metal shims to level and stabilize the foundation.


Clean Up

Oklahoma Foundation Repair will fill all holes and clean up the area.
