Poured Concrete Piers
Poured concrete piers are cast-in-place piers connected by a continuous footing or grade beam. A poured concrete pier system with a continuous grade beam or slab and concrete piers extending below grade, is very strong. The large quantities of steel and concrete required make it considerably more expensive than other foundation systems. If the homeowner is in a V-zone or coastal A-zone, or is required to build more than 10’ above grade, this system may be advisable.
