Our patented steel helical piering systems are installed to depths well below the problem soils causing the foundation settlement. In fact, the helical piers will reach all the way to bedrock or adequate load bearing stratum before installation is complete.
These rigid columns of high strength steel are attached to your foundation's footing using heavy duty steel foundation brackets to create the new permanent support for the structure.
The steel piers are hydraulically driven to a specified engineered torque, to stable bedrock or load bearing strata and the weight of the structure transferred to the steel brackets attached to the foundation. This attachment is below the ground so nothing is exposed once the process is completed.
We use helical piers many times on very light structures, porches, and columns to support lighter loads in our area.
Each pier is load tested with a safety factor calculated to ensure a reliable permanent solution. The installation is fast and can be installed in limited areas. The structure is carefully restored back by lifting in unison on each pier or sections of piers.
Our helical piers offer many advantages:
- Variety of products to fit the need (light, standard and heavy duty designs)
- Patented dual-cutting edge blades for rocky soils
- Fast Installation
- Can be installed in any weather even through deep frost
These piers are perfect for the new construction foundation to prevent future issues with foundation problems.
