Installation of helical piers for new construction solves the problem of poor soil conditions. Installing our proprietary patented helical pier brackets, The Stabillizor®, prior to the foundation being poured, Atlantic Foundation and Repair can assure that the load of the foundation will be transferred to stronger, deeper layers of soil.
The Stabilizer® helical piers will anchor the home on stable soil. The Stabilizer® is quick and easy to install. Pier length is determined by the soil type and composition. These helical piers are installed at predetermined intervals in the foundation ditch using a torque motor. Pier caps are placed on top of the helical piers. After all the piles are capped, concrete is then poured over the pier caps to form the foundation footing. When the concrete cures, the helical pier cap and the concrete are tied together transferring the load of the newly constructed home to the helical piers.
