How are Helical Piers Installed?

  • Helical piers are driven into the ground by an excavator or skid steer. A rotating drive motor screws the pier into the ground until the desired torque is achieved.
  • Depth of the helical pier is determined by soil conditions and load capacity.
  • A variety of caps are available for helical piles, each specialized for the type of structure it is required to support.
  • For foundation repair, a specialized bracket is attached to footing or foundation of the building. This allows for stabilization or lifting of the foundation.
