Centric Pier Systems have been utilized on homes for decades now and have stood the test of time. A Centric Pier System is installed by excavating underneath your homes footing, keeping the entire footing intact and up to code.
Eccentric Pier Systems are installed excavating around your homes footing, applying a bracket to the footing and breaking away the footing in the process, which we, and various Structural Engineers do not agree with as intentionally breaking a footing will lead to greater damage in the long term.
