3 Qualities to Look for in the Best Micropile Companies, Louisville, Kentucky

Micropiles are deep foundation elements that are most commonly designed with high-strength steel reinforcement to resist structural loading. While capacities vary, one major constant is the high standards one should have for the best micropile companies out there.

The Dwyer Company has been setting the bar high since 1973, with locations in the Lexington and Louisville, KY, and West Chester, OH, areas. If any of your upcoming commercial foundation repair or construction projects call for micropile underpinning or retrofitting, there are a few qualities you should keep in mind. 

The best micropile companies will feature the following three qualities: 

  • micropileExtensive Experience: The foundation is the last place you want inexperienced hands, so do some research before committing to a company. Explore their case histories, speak with past customers, and find out how long they’ve worked with micropiles specifically. 
  • Commitment To Safety: Above all else, safety should be the company's top priority. This doesn't only apply to the workers and anyone in the vicinity; it concerns the integrity of the structure itself. Find a company with a solid safety record and excellent attention to the smallest details. 
  • Communication: It helps to work with a staff who’s both willing to speak and listen when it comes to the job at hand. Companies that keep their lines of communication open at all times are key when dealing with micropiles and any related foundation concerns. 

As is the case with any complex construction or renovation work, micropile installation is something you need to get right the first time. This won't be an issue for The Dwyer Company, which meets all the requirements above and more. Visit the website for information regarding the commercial and residential services.
