I am looking for fix for a sagging front porch. We just purchased the house and the pier footings are sinking. I found out later that the piers were not placed on virgin soil. Virgin soil is 10′ below grade and the piers are sitting on fill dirt. the fill dirt has been there for approximately 2 years. I was thinking of useing an expanded concrete pad with rebar for my base. I hope one of you pro’s out there will be so kind to assist me with the right info on this one. I have 14 piers on this porch we are talking about and all of the 6×6’s are less then 3′ off of the grade. I look forward to some feed back. Thanks
