Prevent Foundation Settlement With Pre-Construction Helical Piers
Smart contractors understand the value of preventative maintenance. Pre-construction helical piers are an inexpensive way to prevent foundation settlement before it has a chance to begin, ensuring a stable foundation. Unlike push piers which require resistance, helical piers are torque driven like a screw (which is why they’re also referred to as “screw piles”) into the soil where a foundation is to be poured. Once the proper soil resistance is achieved, top plates are fastened to the top of the pile shafts, allowing concrete to be poured directly on top. Thus, the weight of the foundation is resting not on unstable soils, but on the load bearing helical piles.
