Helical Piles System
If you notice cracks in your basement walls or sloping basement floors, then there may be issues with your foundation. There are a lot of options when it comes to foundation repair, so it is best to work with a professional to determine which method is right for your home.
One of the most common methods is the Helical Pile System, a.k.a screw piles, helical piers or helical anchors. Helical piles are ideal for sinking foundations, shifting and buckled walls, and for uneven floors. Simply put, a helical pile is a central steel shaft that includes one or more helical plates. The helical pile is then screwed or turned into the ground until they reach the proper depth. The system is designed to support the load of the home or structure and is ideal a number of different conditions. For example, this includes soils with swampy or sandy characteristics, expansive soils, high water tables, fill areas and areas with unstable soil.
