Sacramento Helical Pile Installation

Helical Screw Foundations in Northern California

Helical piles are one of the most effective solutions for home's experiencing unstable soil conditions. This may include 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 is a common cause of foundation cracking. This occurs if one side settles while the other side remains unmoved.

At NorCal Ram Jack, we use helical piles to repair foundation cracks. Helical piles lift 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. This itself is resting on deeper, more stable soil and sometimes even bedrock.

The helical plate is designed with a true helical pitch. This prevents the piles from 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. The are useful for stability in unstable soil conditions. The are a solution for leveling and repairing cracked foundations.
