Testing Pile Foundations
A pile foundation is a foundation made of piles that support the building and provide stability. The foundation works by supporting a great weight or load in the soil, with the soil bearing the weight. The most important requirement for a good pile foundation is strength.
The best way to test pile foundations is to insert a thin rod into the layer of soil under the pile. After the pile is firmly planted, the rod should easily bend. If the rod bends, the pile was properly oriented, and the piles’ foundation can be considered solid.
