A solid foundation is important to any home. If your foundation doesn’t support your home’s weight, you’ll notice windows or doors not shutting properly, cracks in the walls, or possibly slanted floors. In the future foundation problems can lead to serious structural issues with your home. One solution is the installation of residential helical piers.

What Is a Helical Pier?

A helical pier is a steel foundation pin. During installation, helical piers are driven into the soil by hydraulic machinery.   Generally, there’s a helical bearing plate on the base and a cap on the top. The plate hits the ground while the cap connects with the structure being supported.

What Are the Advantages of Residential Helical Piers?

There are few important advantages of residential helical piers.

  • You can support a deck as well as a whole home
  • Helical piers can be installed in new or existing construction
  • Address foundation issues that are due to soil composition
