Helical Piers Installation
Helical piers (also called helical piles) are large, steel foundation pins that look something like corkscrews. They’re often used for new construction projects requiring a deep foundation system due to soil conditions.
Helical piers are designed to provide the necessary support to prevent new buildings from settling. They come with many benefits, including:
- Can be installed quickly
- Provide increased stability with the use of multiple bearing plates
- Can be installed any time of the year
- Suitable for environmentally sensitive areas
- Require less excavation compared to other types of piers
Over time, the concrete slabs around your home – patio, driveway, sidewalk, pool deck – can become uneven for different reasons, including drainage issues, expansive soil, tree roots, etc. Sunken concrete slabs can be a trip hazard and can lead to serious injuries. Fortunately, they can be lifted and releveled using a procedure called slabjacking.
Slabjacking, or concrete lifting, is a technique that involves the use of polyurethane foam injection to lift the sunken concrete. Once the foam is injected beneath the affected concrete, it starts to react and expand, raising and releveling the slab.
