Wood Piers with Concrete Grade Beam
When pile driving is financially or practically impossible, or the site is too remote for pile-driver access, homeowners may choose wood piers with a concrete grade beam. In this system, an auger is used to dig holes and hold long wooden piers in place using a system of concrete, rebar, and a grade beam. This system must be detailed precisely in order to resist hurricane forces, and may require a signifi cant amount of concrete, potentiality making the foundation system more costly than driven piles.
