Our foundation piers
The name helical pier originates from the design intention of the system itself. The helical plates are welded to the pier shaft and provide anchoring strength as the pier is pushed deeper into the soil. The pier then takes on the weight of the foundation or structural element, allowing massive amounts of force to be controlled. Helical piers are a great option due to their versatility in helping restore foundation and masonry structures. Additional sections can even be added to the pier, as long as it reaches the necessary depth.
Advantages of helical piers:
- Year-round installation
- Fast, effective installation
- Stabilize light structures like decks or concrete stairs
- Can help lift settled foundations back to original level
Push piers are attacked with a heavy-duty bracket are installed near the footings of the structure. Tention is distributed by an external sleeve that strengthens the pier right below the bracket at the critical point of tension. Once the point of stabilization is reached, soil is backfilled around the piers, providing a permanent solution for any settlement disturbance. When the nature of the soil is at question, push piers are the best foundation repair systems available.
Advantages of push piers:
- Best opportunity to lift home to original position
- Minimal disturbance during installation
- Fast, effective installation
- Reaches greater depth than any other option
When a slab becomes unstable or has settled, slab piers can offer a unique solution that another pier can’t Essentially, slab piers are push piers designed intentionally for working with slabs, rather than any other foundational structure. The pier is driven into the soil, at a depth great enough to connect the slab to bedrock or another type of load-bearing soil, allowing the helical blades to anchor themselves to the soil. Stabilizing or raising the slab back to its original state is accomplished with a special design bracket. The void now left by the missing slab is packed in with grout, while the holes or filled in by concrete.
Advantages of slab piers:
- Can extend to great depths to contact stable soil or bedrock
- Non-destructive repair requiring minimal excavation
- Completely hidden after installation holes are filled
- In some cases can help lift a settled slab in addition to stabilizing it
Installing and pouring concrete piers for sunrooms, decks, porches, and other structures used to be the standard practice, but has recently been the source of a lot of frustration. Poured concrete certainly has its limitations, especially when designed to be a long-lasting and durable foundation. It’s limited installation and difficult maintenance options make helical deck piers the best alternative. They are fast, effective, and be installed year-round.
Advantages of helical deck piers:
- Can be installed regardless of frozen ground
- Steel support brackets are stronger than concrete
- Minimally invasive installation
- Deck, sunroom, or other structure can be built immediately after installation
