Our History

Family Owned and Operated Foundation Repair Business for 3 Generations

WeDoOurLevelBestOur family has been in the Foundation Repair business in the Houston area for three generations. Our grandfather leveled Pier and Beam homes back in the 1940’s and 50’s. His son continued foundation repair, introducing Deep Drilled Bell Bottom Piers in the 1960’s.

Dura Pier Foundation Repair began out of our father’s business in 1986, continuing the previous methods, but also introducing the next generation of Foundation Repair Technology – The Dura Lock System. Our Engineers designed the Dura Lock System to take advantage of the best components of previous foundation repair methods, and it remains today as the premier foundation repair system available.

Leading industry technology is only one area in which Dura Pier excels above others. We also offer the most comprehensive inventory of foundation related services. We call this special feature, “One Source Responsibility.” The foundation repair doesn’t end when the structure is leveled. There still remains much to do. Dura Pier has built a solid reputation for taking the extra time to put your house back together: Adjusting Doors, Brick and Mortar repair, Landscaping, and a host of other final cleanup details.
