Helical Piles For Foundation Repair
Ram Jack of Maryland & D.C.
Interchangeably referred to as “helical piers,” “helical anchors,” “earth anchors,” “helicals,” and “screw piles,” helical piles are steel pins designed to even out the foundation of a structure and help with uneven or unstable soil conditions. Anchored deeply into the ground, they are a practical option for repairing damaged foundations or anchoring new construction deep into the earth.
Piers are the preferred foundation solution for tight spaces and for applications like:
- Homes with Foundation Problems
- Decks & Porches
- Solar Panels
- Basement Walls
- Retaining Walls
- Telecommunication Towers
- Bridges & Boardwalks
- Tiebacks & Wall Anchors
- Seawalls & Bulkheads
- Pipeline & Utility Tie-downs
Compared to concrete caissons and wood-driven piles, helical pile foundation systems are a more effective deep foundation alternative. In many construction scenarios, helical piers prove to be more reliable than reinforced or shallow footing foundations. If you are new to this type of foundation, don’t panic! At Ram Jack of Maryland & D.C. , our professional specialists have the experience and certifications required to install helical piles correctly and safely.

Helical piers have become popular due to their ease and speed of installation, which can help strict construction timelines stay on course. Helical piles are also conveniently versatile – capable of being installed during cold winters and hot summers. With the help of a hydraulic torque motor, helical piles can be smoothly “screwed” into the ground. As the helical blades penetrate the soil, torque increases, allowing the anchorage to hold firmly. This process differs from wooden piling or concrete caisson installations, which both require heavy-duty equipment, unearthing lots of soil, and creating intense vibrations that can endanger surrounding structures.
