Sacramento Helical Pile Installation
Foundation SOlutions in the North Bay & Sacramento Valley
Helical piles are one of the most effective solutions for home's that are experiencing unstable soil conditions or foundation cracking. Foundations usually crack from causes related to soil conditions. Home with poor drainage will experience soil expansion that pushes on the foundation. This will crack basement walls and can result in foundation damage. Shifting soil underneath a foundation will also result in a foundation cracking if one side settles while the other side remains unmoved.
At NorCal Ram Jack, we use helical piles to repair cracks by lifting up a foundation that has sunken or shifted due to soil movement. The load of your home will be shifted from the unstable soil to the helical pile, which itself is resting on deeper, more stable soil and sometimes even bedrock.

How Do Helical Piles Work?
Helical piles are made up of a steel shaft with a helical plate that is rotated into the ground. Because this is similar to how a screw works, they are sometimes called screw piles. The helical plate is designed with a true helical pitch to prevent simply churning up and auguring the ground.
The application of helical piles (also called helical piers) are manifold. They are used to provide enhanced structural support in construction, stability in unstable soil conditions, and leveling for cracked foundations.
Helical piles are installed on many different projects, including:
- New Construction
- Communication Towers
- And more...
