Helical Piers

A solid foundation means a secure home. If you’re grappling with foundation settlement issues, quick repair is critical to stop future safety hazards. 

Helical piers stand as a proven solution for stabilizing weak foundations. Should you observe signs of foundation damage in your home, these piers are a reliable way to regain structural integrity and avert future complications. 

Innovative Basement Authority specializes in delivering superior foundation repair services, which include the strategic use of helical piers.  

Read on to discover the enduring benefits of utilizing helical piers to strengthen your home’s foundation. 

What Are Helical Piers? 

Helical piers, alternatively known as helical piles or screw piles, function as foundational supports. They are engineered to transfer a building’s load from unstable soils to more secure, underlying strata or bedrock. Beyond stabilization, these piers even offer the possibility of elevating sinking foundation segments. 

Comprising steel shafts with helical flanges, helical piers penetrate deep into the earth, ensuring exceptional load-bearing capacity. 

The incorporation of helical piers is a vital element in a whole home repair plan, often complementing other essential tasks like basement waterproofing or crawl space sealing. 

Benefitting from advanced engineering, helical piers provide a lasting support system aimed at securing your foundation for the long haul.
