The Concrete Counter Fort System are mostly constructed with concrete. A 8 inch thick wall is poured and attached to the existing foundation wall. The new foundation wall normally extends perpendicular 3 to 4 feet out from your existing foundation in the shape of a “T”. The end of the counter fort in held into place by a helical pier or footing. The counter fort system does not allow the wall to be pulled back plumb. At Executive Structural Piering we have a unique patent pending system that uses steel instead of concrete and can be installed in less than 1 day and well below the cost of a concrete counter fort. Engineered to the highest standards and design this system can be installed on any foundation wall.
