If planning to build a new home or structure, consider using helical piers as a foundation solution. Helical piers save you money. Helical piers are steel shafts with screw-like plates that are driven into the ground to support the weight of the building. They offer many advantages over traditional concrete foundations, such as:
Helical pier installation takes hours, compared to days or weeks, for concrete foundations. Save time and money on labor and materials. Helical piers do not require excavation, curing, or backfilling, which means less mess and damage to the surrounding landscape. They also reduce the risk of soil erosion and settlement issues.
Helical piers can reach more deep and stable soil layers than concrete foundations, which may be affected by frost heave, shrink-swell, or poor drainage. They also have a higher load-bearing capacity and can resist lateral and uplift forces.
Helical piers can be used for any structure, from residential to commercial, and in any soil condition, from soft to hard. They can also be easily adjusted or removed if needed.
