What Micropiles Are & How They Can Help You, West Chester, Ohio

If you’re looking for a way to add extra support to a structure’s foundation, you should consider installing micropiles. But what are they? Here, the team at The Dwyer Company, with locations in Bryan Station, Auburndale, and Tylersville, will explain what micropiles are and how they’ll benefit you.

Micropiles are pipes that are installed beneath a structure to provide the necessary foundation support. Ranging in diameter from 5 inches to 12 inches, they’re smaller than most traditional support materials. To install them, a foundation repair crew drills beneath the property. This makes them ideal for renovation projects. Instead of demolishing sections of the building to install additional foundation support, you can keep the entire structure intact during the installation process.

micropilesMicropiles are particularly useful when the soil conditions are not conducive to using other types of foundation support. For example, underground utilities may prevent a construction team from installing a solid foundation. Because micropiles are small, they can be installed around the utilities or similar obstructions without disrupting them.

They also work to address insufficient soil conditions. When you build a structure, the soil layers in the area won’t all be strong enough to support the new building. Micropiles transfer the load to stronger layers of soil. This makes them particularly useful if you’re adding to an existing structure. Best of all, you won’t need to shut down your facility while the micropiles are being installed: You can continue to run business as usual.
