A Message from the Founder
For 100 years, the foundation repair industry has struggled with the concept of “concentric loading” versus “eccentric loading”. It has been difficult to install a pier under a house, because the house was always in the way. Attaching a bracket to the outer edge of the foundation footing and driving a pier off the bracket caused severe off-set loads, which dramatically decreased the long-term durability and reliability of the system.
If you want your piering system to be a permanent solution, you must do three things:
- You MUST position and install the pier directly under the wall to be lifted or stabilized
- You MUST drive the pier all the way to bedrock or stable strata with verifiable “load testing”, and
- You MUST provide a mechanism that allows the part of the piering system that makes contact with the bottom of the foundation, to rotate as the house is lifted. Otherwise, the installation angle of the pier will not be perpendicular to the footing after it is lifted, causing serious stress by bowing the pier. (If the of the bottom of the footing was already level, why would you need piers, right?)
The development of the patented Stabil-Loc Foundation Piering System has solved the 100-year-old problem of off-set loading. Our patented method of lifting, leveling and stabilizing a foundation is the deepest, strongest method available.
Compare our double walled, heat-tempered extruded, seamless steel, concentric-loaded piering system to any other. You will see almost 1/2″ of steel in the pier walls, driven to bedrock with up to 70,000 lbs. of total force, with the ability to rotate as the house is lifted. Stabil-Loc really is “engineering that makes sense.”

Stabil-Loc Patented Foundation Piers
The patented Stabil-Loc Foundation Piering System is the #1 method for providing homeowners with a permanent foundation repair solution.
Our double-walled, heat-extruded steel tube is positioned directly under the center of the wall to be lifted or stabilized, then driven hydraulically all the way to bedrock or stable strata. This provides the deepest, strongest foundation support available. The patented rotating head assembly maintains concentric loading during the lifting process. Traditionally, the house must be over-lifted to insert shims. Our adjustable “shimblock” eliminates the need for over-lifting the structure which can cause damage to your home.

Our Patented Foundation Piers
Stabil-Loc Foundation Piering Systems was founded in 2008 on a simple, yet critical premise. “If you don’t have good structural engineering behind your piering system, then don’t be lifting other people’s houses with it.” Even the most untrained eye will look at the different methods of foundation repair and types of piering systems in the American marketplace and choose the one that “just makes sense.”
The Stabil-Loc Foundation Piering System does exactly that. When you look at the simplicity of its patented method (U.S. Patent # 8,206,063 B 2), compressive strength of materials and ability to withstand off-set loads and the way it supports the foundation of a structure, you will say, “that just makes sense.” And that’s a permanent solution to your foundation problem.
Stabil-Loc has field tested this patented method of lifting, leveling and stabilizing a foundation with over 35,000 pier installations and has had an unprecedented performance record. NOT A SINGLE FAILURE.
