Helical PiersSolutions for Foundation Failure
Permanently stabilize your foundation walls with helical piers.
Like push piers, helical piers are designed to transfer the weight of your home to load-bearing soil or bedrock, permanently stabilizing your home’s foundation. Instead of being driven into the soil by the weight of the home itself, however, helical piers are “screwed” into the soil using a piece of mechanical equipment. This makes them ideal for lighter structures and new construction. And, as with push piers, in many cases helical piers can lift a sunken foundation back to its original position. In addition to being extremely sturdy, Supportworks helical piers feature a true helix plate that allows for a more accurate torque-to-capacity reading. This means an installer knows when a pier is driven deep enough to find competent soil. With another manufacturer’s helical pier, the installer may stop too soon due to an inaccurate torque reading, and your foundation may sink further in the future.

Why you need it. After a home is constructed, changes in the surrounding soil are the primary cause of foundation settlement. Extreme moisture changes, such as drought or over saturation, along with poorly compacted fill soils, create soil movement. That movement shifts and settles your home, causing cracked walls, uneven floors and a sinking foundation.
