What Are Helical Piers?

Helical piles are designed for soil stabilization and foundation settlement. Helical piers can stabilize settling foundations by connecting footings and walls to solid, load-bearing soils. The helical plates welded to the shaft of a helical pier are designed to pull the pier into the soil when the pier is installed.

  2. Installing Helical Shafts: steel helical piers are turned down into the soil until competent strata is reached.
  3. Installing Foundation Brackets: Unlike push piers, helical piers are driven fully and completely before their brackets are attached
  4. Lifting The Foundation: Once all helical piers and brackets have been installed, the settlement of your foundation will be permanently halted.
