Galvanized Helical Piers

Uses For Galvanized Helical Piers

  • To provide support for structures built on soil that is not capably of holding the weight of a structure
  • Used to create a base for construction of structures on poor soil

Installation procedure

  • The footing is exposed in areas that piers are going to be installed typically a 4’x4’ excavation is required
  • The footing is preped to proved a good seat for the foundation bracket
  • The only cast bracket (no weld put cast in a mold from molten steel) is installed under the footing
  • The galvanized helical pier is driven through poor soil to load bearing strata
  • The bracket is bolted to the pier and the structure is supported and in some cases returned to a more level position

Advantages

  • Pier is “proofed” as it is driven using pressure reading and a mathematical formula we know how much the pier will hold
  • No cure time that you have with concrete poured piers
  • Quick and minimally disruptive installation
  • Life of the structure warranties
