Lift with ANY foundation piers is NOT recommended. Lift causes damage via ‘load reversals’. The soil loses 100% contact from the foundation, eliminating the foundation & soil support. Lifted, all of the foundations load (weight) is resting on 3” circular steel pipes, on 3” of deep soil. Most soils can only support 1,000-2,000 pounds per square foot (12”x12”). For this reason, lifted foundation piers can be prone to re-settlement. Lifting foundations causes damage in many instances. Cracked masonry, drywall cracks, etc. are common with lift. In some cases, severe structural failure has occurred due to lift.
