Helical piers have been around since the mid-1800s, with the screw-like design originally intended for use in sandy soil conditions. In today’s world of construction, helical piers have become a mainstay for home and building foundations, road systems, railroads and much more.
How Do Helical Piers Function?
The purpose of helical piers is to provide support for a new or sinking foundation. These steel pipes are fitted with helices at the end, which are plates that resemble screws. These attached helices pull the pier into position rather than pushing it. The piers are installed in an efficient process that doesn’t require a heavy structure to reach capacity. Rather, they are installed with a handheld hydraulic motor that twists the pier into high density stratum. Because of this, there’s minimal excavation required, noise is kept down and installation can take place inside or outside the home. Once in place, steel brackets are then fitted and take-on the majority of a structure’s weight. Much like a screw supports a shelf, helical piers will support your home or building.
Why Helical Piers?
Helical piers are the preferred choice of the majority of home contractors because they can handle a large variety of load weights, and are ideal for foundational repairs that require angled piering. For example, if a portion of your house is sinking, helicals can lift and provide support for that individual section of the house without relying on its resistance mass. Additionally, these versatile piers can be installed at an angle to straighten and secure a wall that’s starting to bow. When it comes down to it, there are not many residential foundation repairs that this helicals cannot fix.
Another fantastic benefit of helical pillars is the ease of mobility. You can take helicals out whenever you want, or relocate them somewhere else that needs support. For example, lets say you add a third stall on your garage, but there are already piers installed at an angle to support your current garage. Treasured Spaces can relocate the existing piers to support all three stalls, saving you money in the long-run.
Here are a few other reasons that helical piers are often the desired choice of foundation contractors:
-Flexibility. The number of helices can vary based on the job. Added helices strengthen the pier and allow it to break through cumbersome soil composition.
-Broken footings are okay. Helical piers can still use cracked or broken foundation footings unlike their push pier counterparts.
-This system is faster and easier to install, thus reducing the cost of installation.
