Is there a specific name for this?
Actually looks on first glance to be made for something else other than that use.
This is from 5-03-13 ?
LOL March 5th…
Pre-cast concrete pier
Yes but what is the rating on that thread ?
Built in footer seems nice and all but is it rated for that use ?
Been around for awhile and work great for outside decks on grade.
What about for supporting houses?
It’s not supporting a “house”. It’s supporting a “joist” or “beam”.
If you have reservations about it’s appropriateness, call it out.
Not up here. Haven’t seen that due to frost.
Not saying it don’t exist. Never seen one yet.
As many of those self leveling piers I see, it sure looks like it is supporting more than a joist or beam Jeff.
Aye, but the one he focused on sits about 3ft o/c from another. Not much of a concentrated load to be concerned about, but impossible to judge via a poor pic from this far away, with no additional information.
