The Need for Pre-Construction Piers Southwest Marietta, GA
Atlanta Helical Piers

Are you building a new house? Let’s start at the beginning, your foundation. The first step to new construction is to excavate the site of the topsoil to prepare for the foundation. Other than deciding where on the property you are planning to construct your new building, you must decide what type of foundation your building will require. Does it need pre-construction piers?

What is the Foundation’s Job?

A foundation is the lowest part of any building that comes in direct contact with the soil beneath it. Foundations support and transmit the live and dead weights to the subsoil. It is vital to the integrity of your building that your foundation does not fail.

Foundations must be carefully constructed. The depth is determined by the requirements of the building. Some decisions, like the need for pre-construction piers, may be made by the architect and be based on results from a laboratory soil test.

Types of Foundations

The foundation required is determined by the nature of the soil on site and the load the foundation needs to support. Foundations can vary from a simple strip footing to a complex and more reliable pre-construction pier foundation.

It is important that safety against shear failure of the supporting soil be more than adequate. Any settling should not cause any deformation or damage to the building, nor interfere with the function of the structure. Pre-construction piers greatly reduce and prevent later foundation shifting and sinking.

Pier Foundations

Pre-construction pier foundations are used primarily if there is a layer of weak soil structure near the surface that is too weak to support the weight of the building. Piers are then used to bypass this weak layer to a stronger layer below that can support the loads. Not many builders are familiar with the long-lasting and strong reinforcement of pre-construction piers.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
