Piering or Slabjacking?

Another method called slab jacking pumps grout beneath a sagging foundation to stabilize it. Alternatively, when selecting piering, posts are generally driven into unstable soils. Hydraulic lifts raise and stabilize affected concrete slabs. Slab jacking is usually performed on smaller areas such as patios. Interior piering is a popular choice for repairing home foundations.
