Helical Pier Systems – Foundation Underpinning & Leveling

A Powerful Solution For Settlement Issues Structures Of All Types

Foundation settlement problems are typically caused by changing soil conditions around and below your home. Wetting and softening of soils, drying and shrinking of soils, and poorly compacted fill soils can cause your home to shift, sink and settle down into the earth.

Signs of Foundation Settlement

  • Cracks on exterior walls
  • Cracks in drywall on interior walls
  • Sticking doors and/or windows
  • Chimney leaning or pulling away from the home

If you’ve noticed one or more of these signs, there’s a good chance your structure is showing damage from settlement that helical piers may be able to solve.

Helical Pier installation is uniquely suited for both heavy structures and light structures, such as stoops, decks and wing walls. Installations can be performed year-round and utilize small construction equipment or hand equipment to avoid any unnecessary disruption to your lawn and landscape.

What Works (And What Doesn’t) For Foundation Stabilization

Some solutions add extra weight to the soil, making the problem worse. Others are unable to reach depths beyond the problem soils, leaving your home supported by the same unstable soils as before.

The only solutions that work, are those that are able to extend past troubling soils into competent load-bearing strata or bedrock so the weight of your home can be permanently stabilized and supported.

Helical Pier System

The helical Pier system uses rugged steel galvanized helical piers advanced deep into the earth’s soil to transfer the weight of your home onto competent, load-bearing strata or bedrock.

Helical Pier Advantages:

  • Year-round installation
  • Round shaft resists bending
  • Galvanized steel resists corrosion
  • Suitable for light & heavy loads
  • Can lift your foundation back to original level
  • Restores property value
  • Lifetime warranty

Lifetime Warranty

Helical piers are installed by mechanically "screwing" them into the soil using small construction equipment or handheld equipment. Once they reach the proper depth, heavy-duty steel brackets are installed under the footing.

Installing Helical Piers

Helical piers are able to efficiently stabilize distressed foundations by transferring the load of the structure from unstable soil, through the piers, to competent soil strata below.

Footing is exposed and prepared for bracket.

Step 1: Footing is exposed and prepared for bracket.

Step 2: Round-shaft helical piers are mechanically advanced into the soil.

Step 4: The weight of the home is transferred through the piers to competent soil. Home is lifted back to level if possible.
