An alternative to conventional footings, Diamond Piers transfer structural loads from the top of a precast concrete head through pins driven into undisturbed soil. Installation is simple, with no need for digging holes or pouring concrete. Prices range from $130 to $210 each, depending on loading, frost depth, and wind zone. Pin Foundations, diamondpier.com
