If your home or business has crawlspace underneath it, your building is most likely using a pier and beam method for it’s foundation. We can offer a simple relevel and reshim, or installation and leveling usings sonotubes or block and base system.
Whether your house needs a small adjustment or new piers, Alamo Hy-Tech Foundation, Inc. make the best recommendation for your foundation needs utilizing Sonotubes or block & base methods.
When we install a Sonotube pier underneath your home or business, we use a cylindrical mold with a wider base (or foot) into which we pump concrete to harden. The curing process can take three days to a week, depending on the load that the finished pier will support. After initial installation, our team will return to remove the temporary supports and complete the installation.

A Pier & Beam/Block & Base house foundation is usually made of wood and sits on concrete blocks. The bottom Base or “Pad” and blocks are used to elevate the home and create a crawl space beneath the floor of the home. The most common repair is a reshim and readjustment. This allows our experienced crews to adjust and relevel each base so that it properly supports the wooden beam underneath.
