Do Helical Piers Lift or Stabilize Foundation?

You’re trying to decide how to either lift or stabilize your home’s foundation, but you’re not sure if Helical Piers will do the job. In this video we discuss the question, “do helical piers lift or stabilize foundation?”

A helical pier is a steel shaft with screw-like plates on the end. This pier is screwed through the ground outside of your home until it hits stable, undisturbed soil. The pier has a steel bracket that is positioned under your foundation’s footing, much like the seat of a chair, to give the wall support and hold it in place. This bracket allows the pier to leverage the resistance between the deep solid ground at the bottom of the pier and your home.
