Helical Piers are a great alternative to concrete footings. Designed to ensure maximum support, helical piers consist of a galvanized steel foundation pin with a welded helical shaped screw head at the bottom. Using a hydraulic machine, the heavy-gauge pipe is screwed deep into the ground, below the frost line. The softer the soil, the deeper the pile is driven, in some cases requiring an extension to increase the length. We utilize the best pressure gauge technology on the market to know when the pier has reached an adequate level of resistance. Standard formulas allow us to convert the torque readout to the bearing load required by code. Instead of waiting for a typical footing inspection, we can provide a log report to the inspector at final inspection, thus saving you time and money.
Besides being a cost-effective solution, there plenty of other benefits to using steel helical pier foundations, opposed to digging out foundations:
