What Are Helical Piles & How Are They Installed?

Helical piles (also known as helical anchors, piers, and screwpiles) are steel foundation pins screwed into the ground to provide a stable foundation for various structures. They are designed to bear the weight of heavy structures where unstable ground conditions require deep anchoring.

Professional installation is essential for anyone looking to invest in this reliable foundation. Our installation process involves specialized equipment (hydraulic torque motors), years of training, and in-depth knowledge. Our experienced contractors will examine your project site and determine the optimal location for screwing helical piles into the foundation.

We will also consider various factors that may affect the installation, such as:

  • Soil type
  • Groundwater levels
  • Local climate

When it comes to installation processes, helical piles are much faster than traditional concrete foundations. They don't require any curing time and can be immediately loaded with weight, saving you time and money. Helical piles are also more environmentally friendly than traditional foundations, producing less waste and requiring a smaller carbon footprint to install.

The Benefits of Helical Piles

Helical piles are ideal for tighter spaces and smaller projects. They are more flexible and affordable than other foundation solutions like concrete or wooden piles. They are also helpful when soil movement is a potential concern. Helical piles enhance stability, ensuring that your structure is supported while minimizing the chances of damage to the foundation.

You can be confident your structure is safe and secure from the long-term effects of soil or weather. After all, helical piles are designed to withstand various environmental factors like rainfall, frost, and more. Each pile is finished with an eco-friendly thermoplastic coating that guarantees a durable 50-year lifespan. They can also prevent frost heave, which can be damaging to traditional concrete and wooden foundation solutions.
