    Good day. My builder installed three large pilons/piers for me, however they are level with my rough grade and I would like them to be well above [6"] my final grade. I've thought of drilling in a few short pieces of rebar and then simple capping off each pier to build it up the additional height. Any suggestions ?

    I had no idea that decks can put so much weight on piers. The fact that a small deck can put more than 12,000 pounds into the soil is something that makes the need for correct design and engineering even more apparent. A lot of times, that's something that you don't really think about, but there's a lot of things like this that can make a big difference. Thanks for sharing!
