Helical piers are an underpinning technique that applies substantial anchoring support for compromised foundations.

Helical piers are used to transfer loads from the soil near the surface to deeper, more suitable load-bearing strata below. Also known as anchors, piles or screwpiles, helical piers are deep foundation solutions appropriate for securing new and/ or repairing existing foundations.

Why You May Need Helical Piers

When conditions lead to a distressed foundation:

  • Exposure to moisture over a long period of time or construction work being cited on unstable soil; if unchecked you will notice common signs of settlement or foundation failures, such as windows and doors that are sticking and hard to open and/or cracking of interior dry walls becomes visible.
  • You notice that walls are beginning to lean and floors are starting to settle and become uneven.
  • Cracks start to become evident in foundations or basement walls.

Advantages Of Helical Piers

  • Can be used in sensitive areas
  • Minimum ground disturbances
  • Environmentally friendly installation
  • Can be loaded immediately after install, thereby shortening the job schedule and reducing costs
  • Installation utilizes no impact forces and produces no vibration, which minimizes the risk of damage to adjacent structures

Due to their design and ease to install, they are most commonly used whenever soil conditions prevent standard foundation solutions. Instead of requiring large excavation work, they thread into the ground. This minimizes installation time, requires little soil disturbance, and most importantly transfers the weight of the structure to load bearing soil.
