Why does my foundation need helical piers?
Helical piers are used to stabilize foundations that have started to settle due to insufficient support from the soil on which they are built. Foundation settlement can show itself in:
- Sticking windows and doors
- Uneven floors
- Tilting chimneys
- Cracked walls
- Gaps between floors and walls
These problems can either be early signs of foundation failure or the underlying symptoms of serious structural damage. Regardless, they should be addressed immediately to prevent the damage from spreading. Helical piers are used to provide support to your foundation where it previously had none.
How will helical piers repair my foundation?
Helical piers are similar to a large screw that is threaded into the soil under your foundation. These piers are screwed into the ground until they reach a suitable depth and provide foundational support by finding load-bearing soil that will lift your foundation back to its original condition and keep it supported. Helical piers are widely used in residential or commercial applications for everything from repairing your home’s foundation or tilting chimney to supporting civil construction projects.
