“Please give your crews a raise.
They used a wheelbarrow to move all the dirt inside my house
to the outside and then moved it back. My friends warned me
about the huge mess with interior piers, but guess what… You
were right and they were WRONG!!! I guess they should have

The Foundation Repair Process
1st Choice Foundation Repair uses tested and proven
methods for Dallas foundation repair. Thankfully, we
do not use
smoke and mirror tactics to allure you into believing you need
some patented, revolutionary piers system so we can get more
money out of you.
At 1st Choice Foundation Repair we most often recommend
either steel piers or predominantly concrete piers for your foundation repair. These are the most widely used, economical, and
reliable systems, as many, if not most, structural
engineers will tell you. We back both techniques
with our LIFETIME, TRANSFERABLE
WARRANTY for your protection.
We utilize pressed, concrete piers for the majority of our
foundation repair jobs. We've found that they are the
our customers, while providing them with a long-term solution
and the peace of mind they are deserve. In addition, you will
find that Pressed, Concrete pilings are the industry standard
in foundation repair for the following reasons:
The repair process is relatively fast, usually completed
within 1 or 2 days.
Again, it is an extremely reliable and accepted method of
It consistently proves to be the most cost effective method
for our customers.
Pressed, Concrete piers are installed directly under the
exterior/interior grade beams of the subject property.
Therefore, they seem to provide the best long-term solution
when pressed to the appropriate depth.
The main downside to the installation of concrete piers is the
digging of holes, which allow the piers to be pressed under
the grade beams. This may require the temporary removal of
plants and bushes. We are always extremely careful in handling
any landscaping, and treat your home
as if were our own.
“Thank you, Jason, for taking such
good care of my plants. I was really afraid I would lose them.
Your guys took great care of them and actually helped me move
them around a little when they re-planted them.”

We drive all our piers the point of Absolute Refusal
which generally insures that there will be minimal, if
any, future movement. We go the extra depth to insure the
integrity of our work and to avoid future warranty calls.
We will recommend steel piers in certain situations where
a much deeper depth is required. We generally try to avoid
using them though, as they are a much more expensive way to
go, with limited upside. However, we evaluate each property on
a case by case basis to determine the best solution.
Here are some Advantages of Steel Piers:
The installation process is normally quicker than with
There is less need to remove soil and dig, so there is is less
mess, and limited collateral damage to landscaping.
The main advantage is that we can reach greater depths.
Here are some Disadvantages of Steel Piers:
Steel piers are much more expensive than Concrete pilings.
Piers are not placed directly under the exterior grade beam of
the foundation, as with Concrete piers.
Steel is a corrosive material and may become weakened over
