Only the highest-quality materials should be used in foundation repair. Did you know that all concrete is not created equal? For a strong pier and beam foundation, high-density concrete blocks should be used to form the piers.
When low-density concrete is used, there are too many air pockets within the concrete, which means the blocks are weaker overall. The recommended dimension of concrete blocks for pier foundations is 8” X 8” X 16”. Anything smaller may not be sturdy enough to support your home.
