Pier & Post System

We Are Pier & Post System Experts in Southern California

Concrete Pier and Post systems use a bracket placed over a hole filled with concrete.  Once the concrete sets, the post-frame is bolted onto the brackets, which are engineered to code compliance.  Concrete piers provide a neat, clean look on the inside, without columns being spliced and roof purlins run continuous end-to-end.  Piers are also on grade, which allows prefabricated walls installed on the ground.  Pier and post systems are easily installed and less costly than traditional slab foundations.  Built Strong can easily repair or install pier and post foundation systems.

Advantages of Pier and Post Foundations
A Pier and Post or Pier and Beam Foundation approach can be more effective than a concrete slab foundation in certain cases. Factors to be considered in comparing Pier and Post to Slab Foundations are year-around weather conditions of both wet and dry climates, which cause changes in soils from dry to high moisture and vice versa.
The piers are driven into the ground until a stable soil level is reached. These Piers are then connected to each other by horizontal beams. This kind of horizontal and vertical reinforcement is superior and effective in supporting house framing above ground. Slab foundations are laid directly over existing soil making them prone to support issues due to changes in soil. However, Pier and Post foundations provide continuous support even during soil changes throughout contrasting seasons.
The cosmetic design and appearance is also more appealing than concrete slab foundations. Pier and Post foundations offer a clean look because they are often insulated with walls made of lumber which cover the foundation from the perimeter. Other advantages are plumbing and electric installation. Because the home is supported by piers it creates simpler installation for plumbing and electrical to be ran underneath the home as opposed to concrete slab foundations when digging may be required to install plumbing. Pier and Post systems are also more economically friendly and can reduce energy costs from air insulation underneath the home.
