Can we use it to support a 2-story house?

Asked by Fan October 27, 2017
4
Answers

Do NOT use these to support a house (if it's not a tiny house). The soil bearing capacity of clay is about 5,000 psf. Yours may be different, but clay is pretty common. Consult an engineer for your area. At 5,000 psf, the 22-in base is going to be only about 2.7 sf, so the maximum weight you can put on one of these in that type of soil is roughly 13,000 pounds - and that's without a safety factor, nor considering changing soil conditions due to moisture. A single-story house - on average - weighs about 200 psf, so you could only support a 6x6 area with just one of these if you're not considering a safety factor. That's some serious challenges and pocket change to support an entire house. You'd have to have one every 4-5 feet. On a 2000 sf home, that's a LOT of these things. They're great for decks, and I might use them for my porches, pergolas, tiny homes, etc, but I will definitely not be using them to support a large home/structure. They're not designed for it. Remember: your foundation design has more to do with your soil conditions than the bearing capacity of your foundation material. Consult an engineer.

After digging the hole and inserting a few inches of stone, level and compact the stone. Once the pier base is placed in the hole it will be level and plumb.

I used this product: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Simpson-Strong-Tie-ZMAX-4-in-x-4-in-Galvanized-Adjustable-Post-Base-ABW44Z/203522843 The rod comes up into this plate where you put the nut on and then cut the rod off at the top of the nut. Then the inner piece of the connector covers the rod and nut and provides the base for your 4x4 post.

This is really a great solution for diy projects. If you don't have a machine to move solid piers, which could weigh an enormous amount, this is a great solution. Setting them up to be level and plumb was really not a hard task. As we were dealing with a bit of water, we layered the foundation with crusher stone. We started by setting the base for each footing and thereafter followed with the 4 sections atop each of those.

Fantastic product. I had to dig under an existing porch to put new footings in. This was a life saver! I added 2 piers, one that required 6 blocks plus the base, the other was 5 blocks plus the footer. So I simply ordered 3 sets. This gave me one extra base and one extra top section. No big deal. Digging under a pre-existing porch was a pain! But putting these stackable piers in was a breeze!! Thank you EZ-Create! I miss judged the depth on one by 6". I was very disappointed in my measuring skills. I did not realize it until I put the "final" block in. I had already filled in most of the hole (under the porch). What to do? I got a concrete blade for my circular saw and cut the left over section in half. The blade did not go clean through of course, so after cutting all the way around, I used an old chisel and gently tapped it into the cut until the two halves split. Then I used my circular saw and a grinding wheel to carve out the bottom so that it would fit over the top of the shaped block in the ground (see the picture of the blocks). My last step was to get a small caulking tube of construction glue and put the entire tube on top of the block in the ground. My carved out block fit right over it and is now permanently glued to the block below. Same as all of the blocks, but because I was modifying this block I wanted much more glue than the rest had. I had to buy threaded 1/2" rod and couplings to add the additional blocks. No bid deal. I also put a bag of gravel under the base on each one. My porch has been settled onto the new piers for 6+ weeks now and it all looks great!

With challenging access for cement truck, limited human resource (family), precast concrete delivered to (remote) site was a good options. We were able to install four spot footings on a hill with rock in one day. It's a bit on costly side ($530 for four), yet in bigger picture perhaps worth it.
