Conventional concrete slab foundations use reinforcing steel placed on a grid within the slab, whereas post tension cable construction places the concrete under compression and creates a more rigid structure. Even with this increase in rigidity, the slab can still bend and rotate (settle or heave).

In 1987 Mr. Pryor personally trained several individuals in his effective, high-quality foundation procedures. Once satisfied with their competence, he allowed them to form their own individually owned and operated Butler Foundation companies.

Butler Foundation of Richardson & Plano, Inc. is now the exclusive business operating under the Butler Foundation name. It has elected to honor warranties made by Butler Mid Cities, Butler Carrollton, Butler Rockwall, Butler Richardson & Butler Plano.

Butler Foundation, formed in 1977, was a pioneer in the installation of deep-drilled concrete piers for foundation repair. In 1980, Mr. Al Pryor purchased Butler Foundation, further perfected the foundation repair methods and built Butler Foundation into one of the most highly respected foundation repair companies in the area.

Concrete Pressed Pile Installations for Residential Structures:

Concrete pressed piles are typically installed by using the weight of the house as the resistive force against which hydraulic jacks push (press) the piles into the ground. They are pushed to “refusal”. This means that the pile will be forced into the ground until it begins to lift the house, at which time they can no longer be pushed farther into the ground. The Safety Factor at the time of installation is 1.0

The depth to which they are pushed is dependent upon the resistive force of the soil (skin friction and end bearing) at the time of installation, and the resistive weight of the house. If the depth to which the piles are pushed is insufficient to account for changes in the soil’s capacity to support the weight of the house, THEY WILL “FAIL”. Pressed piles are typically from 6″ to 8″ in diameter. The larger the diameter of the pile and the drier the soil, the shallower the resulting installation.

What causes Foundation Problems? 

Foundation problems in large areas of Texas are the result of building on soils more suited to agriculture than homes. The houses are built on soil that expands and contracts violently. Foundation issues are more costly than tornadoes in Texas, according to Dr. Allen Poor, of the Construction Research Center at the University of Texas at Arlington.
