Concrete piling is one of the most commonly used foundation repair methods for housing and light commercial construction.
A concrete pile is a column made of concrete that is installed into the earth under a foundation. The piles are set in place via hydraulic equipment. They can be reinforced with steel bars to ensure maximum firmness and safety. They are hydraulically driven to load-bearing strata below the foundation being repaired.
Concrete piling work by enabling a transfer of the building’s load to load-bearing strata. The design of pile foundations, their efficiency, and their capacity is all determined by the foundation spacing and skin friction in a pile group.
Advantages of Concrete Piling as a Foundation Repair Method
Concrete piling has multiple benefits.
- Longevity and durability. Concrete piling methods will last as long as a concrete foundation itself.
- Speed of installation. Concrete piling can be installed in half the time as a concrete drilled pier.
- Fast time to use. Concrete pilings can be used as soon as they are installed. A concrete drilled pier, in contrast, require setting for 7 days before use.
- Reasonable cost. Less expensive than other methods of foundation repair, such as steel piling methods.
Concreting of pile foundations requires quality and workability of concrete to be maintained for durable construction of pile foundations with required strength. The grade of concrete, its workability, consistency and mixing for concreting of pile foundation is discussed in this article.
