A Helical Pier can be thought of as a large screw, which is driven into the ground. It provides stability to the foundation, acting like an anchor. In fact, they are also known in the industry as anchors, piles, and screwpiles. They provide deep foundation solutions for both new construction, and to repair an existing foundation.

When soil conditions prevent the use of standard foundation solutions, helical piers are often used because of their design and ease of installation. Rather than excavation, which can be both costly and time consuming, the piers are threaded into the ground. The resulting process reduces installation time and soil disturbance while properly transferring the weight of the structure to stable, load-bearing soil.

When Should They Be Used?

Helical Piers and Piles are needed for numerous residential and commercial applications and may be used when the job specifies caissons, driven piles or mini piles. Once foundations are exposed to moisture over a long period of time or construction is cited on unstable soil, structural and foundation damage becomes visible. To repair the foundations of your property and ensure the building does not lose value, they are used to stabilize the foundation. Helical piers and piles can also be used to repair foundations when foundation failure becomes apparent:

  • Windows and doors are sticking, hard to open
  • There are large gaps in window and door frames
  • Interior plaster walls are cracking
  • Multiple nail pops are appearing in ceilings and walls
  • Walls are beginning to lean noticeably
  • Floors are starting to settle and become uneven
  • Chimneys are tilting or leaning
  • Cracks can be seen in foundations or basement walls
