New Construction Helical Piles
Helical piles (also called helical anchors, helical piers, screw piles, etc.) are not only useful in foundation repair, they can be used pre-construction to ensure a stable foundation. Unlike “push” piers, pre-construction helical piers are torque-driven, which does not require the resistance weight of an existing structure. Once driven to the target capacity, a pile cap is installed, giving a flat, solid surface upon which a footing or slab may be poured.
