Push piers are repair solutions to address foundation settlement issues. These heavy-duty steel tubes are hydraulically driven into the ground beneath your foundation. This system utilizes the weight of your home to drive the piers to load-bearing soil strata or bedrock, ensuring the stability and security of your home’s foundation. 


Resistance piers or push piers are versatile and can be installed inside or outside your foundation, offering a solution to various signs of foundation problems, including settlement, uneven floors, cracked walls, and sticking doors and windows.  It provides a permanent solution to strengthen your home’s structural integrity, saving you from costly repairs and giving you peace of mind for long-term stability.


At LUX, we use the GripTite Push Pier System, which is engineered to provide unparalleled support to permanently stabilize, strengthen, and effectively lift and level your settled foundation to prevent further sinking or structural damage.

How Do Push Piers Work?

Push Piers work by transferring the weight of your home’s foundation to more stable soil layers, effectively “pushing” it back to its original position. At LUX, our team of professionals has the knowledge and expertise to ensure a smooth and seamless installation. The process of installation involves the following steps:

1. Site Assessment

Before we begin our installation, we thoroughly assess your site. This allows us to determine the appropriate placement and number of push piers needed to effectively stabilize your foundation. We’ll examine the extent of the settlement and the soil conditions to create a detailed plan for the installation.

2. Preparation of Foundation

Footing and Excavation
Our preparation process depends on whether the installation is inside or outside. For inside installations, we remove a part of your slab floor to reveal the footing. For outside installations, we excavate the soil surrounding your foundation to uncover the footing, which will be reinstated after the installation. For outside installations, the soil around is excavated to expose the footing. If necessary, the footing is shaped and cleaned to ensure a clean connection with the push piers.

3. Securing the Foundation Bracket

After the footing is prepared, we secure the foundation bracket. This bracket will hold the push pier in place and transfer the weight of your structure to the pier.

4. Pier Installation

The steel rods are then hydraulically driven into the ground until they reach stable soils, providing a robust support system for your foundation. This step is meticulously carried out to ensure that the piers are installed at the correct depth and angle, achieving optimum stability and load-bearing capacity.

5. Lifting and leveling (optional)

Once the piers are in place, we offer an optional service of lifting and leveling your foundation to its original position. Using specialized equipment, our team can carefully lift your foundation, thereby closing cracks and gaps that may have appeared due to settlement. This process not only improves the structural integrity of your property but also enhances its aesthetic appeal.

6. Finishing Touches

Upon completion of the installation, we inspect the entire foundation to ensure everything is secure and in place. We then clean up the work area and restore any landscape elements that may have been affected by the installation process.


Installing push piers is a meticulous process, but with our expertise and precision, we ensure a sturdy and stable foundation for your structure.

Professionals from LUX can make the process efficient. Plus, the long-term benefits of a stable home often outweigh the temporary inconvenience, ensuring your home’s safety and structural integrity for years to come.

When should I consider using push piers for my foundation?

You should consider using push piers when you notice signs such as cracks in walls or floors, uneven or sagging floors, or doors and windows that can’t open or close.

It’s important to address these problems promptly to prevent further damage to your home. 

If you’re uncertain about the condition of your foundation, it’s advisable to consult with professionals at LUX for a thorough inspection and expert guidance on whether push piers are the right solution for your specific situation.

How deep do push piers need to be installed to ensure stable support for my foundation?

The depth can vary depending on factors like the soil composition and the specific foundation issues you’re dealing with. 


In general, push piers are driven deep into the ground until they reach load-bearing strata, typically at depths ranging from 20 to 70 feet or more. The goal is to penetrate past any unstable soil layers and secure the piers into more stable ground to provide a solid support system. 


The exact depth required will be determined during a professional assessment by our expert team, who can assess your specific circumstances and provide the appropriate solution for a stable and secure foundation.

How long do push piers last?

Push piers are designed to last for a very long time, often for the lifetime of your home. They are made from durable materials like high-strength steel.


Once properly installed by our expert LUX team, they permanently stabilize your foundation. Our Push piers also come with warranties. 


However, the longevity also depends on factors like soil conditions, environmental factors, and the quality of the installation. Regular inspections and maintenance can help ensure they continue providing stable support for many years, making them a reliable, long-term solution.

Will installing push piers increase the value of my home?

Yes, installing push piers can increase the value of your home. They are considered a valuable improvement because they address and resolve foundation issues, which are critical for the structural integrity of your property.

The cost of installing push piers usually ranges from $2000 to $2,500 per pier. It can vary widely depending on several factors, including the extent of foundation damage, the size and layout of your home, soil conditions, and the specific type of steel pipes used.


On average, project costs can fall between $7,000 and $25,000 on the lower end and between $25,000 and $50,000 on the higher end. It is important to consider these factors when planning for repairs and installation.
