Concrete Piering Explained | Simone TV: Episode 12
On this episode we take you on-site to go over the piering underneath the slab.
Today we will take you on-site to have to take a look about on these piers. These piers actually seats underneath your house. They are installed first – before the concrete – and are put in place to support your concrete. If you look over there that is where they are digging out the piers. You come down over here this is an empty pier hole.
What happens is they’ll start to take the dirt out. They’ll start pulling the dirt and they’ll take it away from the site. Next, the concrete is pumped in using a long pipe. All of these holes are eventually filled with concrete and this becomes the supporting structure underneath your house.
Alright, so what I’ve got here, I got the engineers plans. If you look in here this is where the concrete work. Each one of these little dots is a pier. They set one side of the house so this side over here, set that whole side like that and mark that each one of these piers. And each one of these here gets dug out like we discussed earlier.
Alright guys, I hope you enjoyed this episode. If you know anyone that’s unsure about concrete piering, not tag them in the comments below.
