Our drilled concrete piers are used for underpinning existing and supporting new construction foundations for commercial or residential. Piers are added to a foundation system to extend the system to or into subsurface strata that is deeper and more stable than the near surface soil that supports an existing or will support a new foundation.
Your home or commercial buildings foundation is the support for the overall structure. When your foundation starts to settle or heave, you need a trusted company like S & W Foundation to correct the issues with drilled concrete piers.
Our turn key drilled concrete pier option includes drilling of the shaft (with a bell or rock penetration if necessary), reinforcing steel, and pouring of concrete.
If you have a commercial need for drilled concrete piers please forward us your plans to include drawings with the number of piers, pier diameter, pier depth, bell width or rock penetration.

Do you know what type of foundation supports your home?
Here in Texas, the most typically used residential foundation types are concrete slabs and pier & beam.
Concrete Slab – a common structural foundation element of modern homes that is mostly about 4 inches thick constructed with concrete and reinforcing steel. Concrete slabs are typically constructed directly on subsoil and are ground bearing.
Pier & Beam – a structural foundation comprised of a perimeter grade beam and numerous piers within the grade beam that support wooden beams (girders) and joists.
Almost all homes will have some sort of seasonal movement but a lot will succumb to settlement due to soil moisture fluctuations or insufficient soil bearing capacity. Once this happens it will typically get worse in the future. With S & W Foundation, you will get prompt and reliable foundation repair with drilled concrete piers that you can trust.
With over 30 years experience with drilling concrete piers for repair issues or new construction, S & W can handle the drilled concrete pier needs for your project.
