Helical piers are a potential solution for foundation damage surrounding or on the perimeter of the foundation. If the foundation is sinking or cracked, a Helical Pier system may be used to correct the damage and prevent from any future structure damage.

Signs of Structural Settling

  • Uneven Floors
  • Broken or Peeling Tile and Linoleum
  • Bubbles or bumps in carpeting
  • Floor Slopes
  • Windows or Doors Difficult to Shut

This technology is beneficial for both residential and commercial properties. The basis of Helical Piers is built from a system of vertical steel piers similar to a post which are driven into the soil until reaching a solid layer of bedrock. This will provide increased support for the concrete foundation above, to successfully level the slab. Helical Piers solutions can take approximately 1-5 days to complete.

Types of Helical Piers We Recommend


Square Shaft Pile: Used in both uplift and compression situations.

These piles have considerable weight bearing capacity. However a majority projects with Square Shaft piles are used for upward or tension jobs intended to raise the foundation to its correct and level position.

Alternatives to Helical Pier Solutions:


Tie Backs: The Tieback system approach is used to provide supplemental support if necessary to foundations and walls by using diagonally placed Piers, ensuring horizontal and vertical support.

The Installation Process


Tiebacks are driven into firm and stable soils and then connected via an adapter to a retaining wall to ensure stability.

We take our time to cautiously map out the area and find the best way to approach the problem to install your helical piers. They are mechanically installed by screwing them deep into the soil. We closely monitor the installation to assure optimum capacity. Once we have them at their capacity location, we will install and attach an underpinning steel foundation bracket to the piers. In a carefully maneuvered switch, the weight of your home is transferred onto the piers and then onto the soils below. This will ensure no future sagging and shifting of your home and give the possibility of your home being lifted to its original building position.
