The price of piers varies greatly. It depends on the type of job, the size of the job, the engineering of the job. Pier prices depend upon the depth of where they’re going to go in at, what type of pier that there is.
There’s a lot of things that are involved in pricing a pier. We don’t have a blanket price. We look at each job individually. We look at each one on its own merits, on its own problems.
Sometimes, there’s a gas line in the way. Sometimes, there’s electric lines in the way. There’s sprinkler lines. There’s bushes. There’s concrete. There’s a lot variables that just really play into the fact of a pier price. There’s a lot of things that people don’t see. The hidden costs of piering.
The price of insurance is just phenomenal in our industry, and we carry insurance on our employees, on our equipment, on our general business liability. When we’re on your property, we actually are in insured for up to $2 million. Most people don’t realize that there’s a lot of hidden costs that go into the act of making a pier.
