A helical pier works to stabilize the ground underneath your structure, working with the weight of the building to anchor the complex to the soil beneath. A helical pier accomplishes this using the unique shape of its curved steel plates. The plates work like a screwdriver, transferring the weight of your structure onto the pier.
Cases where soil conditions prevent standard foundation solutions from being used require helical piers. Instances where foundations have been exposed to moisture over long periods of time, result in soil being unstable from the high water content. Construction also requires helical piers when working in industrial settings. This is necessary due to helical piers taking a relatively small amount of time to install so your project will not be delayed.
Helical piers provide many benefits to the structure, overall construction time and costs of production. These tools demand no excavation when placing them into the soil, therefore requiring no additional concrete to be applied to the ground around the building site. Due to this they’re resistant to all forms of frost, remaining structurally intact in all weather climates. Helical piers work to maintain the integrity of the environment, protecting the earth along with the construction site.
Using helical piers makes your structure safe, supported and secure– from construction design to final piece– ensuring that the best pier is created out of the most affordable price.
