Hunter and Son Construction constantly evaluates changing soil conditions through rigorous research and development at the NIAR, Wichita State University’s prestigious research facility. We have developed and tested a pier for foundations that is designed to withstand the movement of earthquakes and keep your foundation from settling. Protecting your home or building from future settling is our top priority.
We are a certified installation company that specializes in the Stabilis Piering System for commercial and residential use. If you are in need of foundation repair, give us a call today.
A helical pier is a hydraulically driven steel anchor that is torqued into the earth until it meets the desired design load criteria. Piering brackets are attached to the footing and stem wall and a mechanical connection is made between the helical pier shaft and footing bracket.
The structure beneath can now be raised back to a pre-determined elevation with a hydraulic jack, pump and manifold system. This mechanism allows for elevation control of the structure.
Steel piers (Resistance Piers) are hydraulically driven pilings that are forced into the earth utilizing the live load (buildings contents) and dead load (buildings make up, i.e. footings, stem walls, roof structure, etc.) Our piering system utilizes a 10,000 psi hydraulic pumping system.
