Resistance Piers | Alabama Foundation Repair Services | SouthernDry

Resistance Pier System

Are you noticing your foundation is not level or you have cracks in structural walls? Resistance Piers are our solution for solving your foundation settlement and movement problems around your home or business. These resistance piers are pipe segments that are hydraulically-pushed in order to stabilize your residential or commercial building. Foundation settlement and movement is a common problem, and it can be caused by building on expanding clay, improperly compacted soils, or by lacking the proper maintenance around foundations. It doesn’t matter the cause, Resistance Piers are our cost-effective solution to your foundation settlement and movement problems.

How Does it Work?

The Resistance Pier System is engineered to use the weight of your structure as its reaction system to further push sections of the pier deeper into the soil.

Why Use Resistance Piers?

Many structures are not supported appropriately and this leads to cracks and other deformities when the foundation begins to settle. This problem becomes noticeable when cracking shows up in your foundation, or when you notice that the level of the foundation begins to shift. SouthernDry’s experts are highly trained at evaluating your Alabama foundation needs and recommended this system if it’s necessary for the safety of you and everyone else in the structure. The Resistance Pier System is engineered to fit your particular foundation and the type of the soil causing the problem. The pier system is anchored, lifts your foundation into place, and keeps it in place to keep your structure safe and secure. Without an effective system like the Resistance Piers, it is only a matter of time before the foundation becomes lethally hazardous for the entire building.

Advantages of the Resistance Pier System:

  • Each pier is tested individually during the installation process
  • Our equipment allows for installation in hard-to-access areas
  • No materials to clean up
  • After installation the system is immediately ready for structural support

Case Studies


Excellent customer service!

Excellent customer service! Excellent work! Excellent Choice! The owner came out and spoke with me about the project. He is very knowledgeable in regards to his line of work. I didn't feel as if he was selling me a product, but selling me what needed to be done to have the job done correctly. The best part of the experience was the work crew. I was out of town when the job was done, but the lead crew member maintained good communication with my wife and made her feel completely comfortable with the crew at our home. When I returned home, I texted the lead crew member with some questions, he responded immediately and stated that help was a phone call away if there were any concerns. A few last things that are worthy of mentioning. This is the first time in years that our home has not had random odors showing up! The air quality in the house is completely different! Our sagging floors are no longer sagging! Great choice with a local company! Great choice going with SouthernDry!

Reinforced Wall

SouthernDry came when promised, did their work efficiently and carefully cleaned up their mess. We needed to have a wall on our driveway reinforced and it took some extensive drilling. It was done quickly and the price was very reasonable.

Coming to the Rescue

It was a moment of serendipity when I met Russ from SouthernDry. At a place in my life where I was afraid to even call a foundation specialist, Russ came to the rescue. Him and his crew were extremely prompt at getting the job done and I highly recommend their services.

Very Professional

Entire team was very professional. They were excellent at communicating what needed to be done. They were always on time and let you know every step of the process. There was no high pressure sales techniques. They give you the quote and you can start on your timeline. Just call them when you are ready. I got quotes from the more widely advertised foundation repair companies as well and SouthernDry gives you the same product and same warranty at a great price. They worked hard to work around the landscaping. They also did an excellent job of cleaning up. I highly recommend them.

Everyone I spoke with from Southern Dry was top notch.

Everyone I spoke with from SouthernDry was top notch. I prefer doing business with people who are average, regular, down-home folks trying to make an honest living. If you're like me and want someone straight up to give you a reasonable quote on your repairs, call Calvin. They were fast, gave me a date to begin, started that morning early and did a fantastic job. Juan was the foreman on my project and if I had a question he had an answer for me. He was extremely nice and knowledgeable about what was being fixed and done. I was never left in the dark about anything. I had some pretty major foundation issues on one side of my newest house. The back sill plate was rotten and the floor was sagging from no support in the rear. Juan and the crew installed 6 piers, replaced the sill plate, cleaned the crawlspace completely, installed 5 jack supports, encapsulated it all and installed a dehumidifier and battery back up, and made me a 2 new doors in 3 days! So Calvin, Russ, John, Juan, and the other crew, thank you for a job well done. The house looks a million times better! I really appreciate it!

Reasonably Priced and Good Work

Reasonably priced and good work. I really appreciate that the company was willing to work with me until I was able to save the money to pay for my foundation repair. I only had to pay a deposit up front until the job was done. They honored my estimate for a couple of months before I was able to pay for the job to be completed.
