Installing Helical Piers for Foundation Repair
HELICAL PIERS – THE BEST TOOL FOR THE JOB
In the 20 years we have been repairing foundations, we have not come across a more reliable and cost-effective method of foundation repair as helical piers. This versatile product is perfect for fixing your foundation, as well bowed basement walls and leaning retaining walls.
HOW DO HELICAL PIERS WORK?
Unlike push piers, helical piers do not use the weight of the home to counteract foundation settlement. Instead, they use torque generated when they are ‘drilled’ down into the load bearing soil beneath a home or other structure. This is what gives them their versatility. When used to repair basement walls and retaining walls, they are drilled into the earth at an angle. The same type of torque used to repair a foundation is used to straighten these walls. They can also be installed as a preventative measure before a foundation is poured. These pre-construction piers will ensure that the new structure will suffer no foundation issues in the future.
HOW MUCH DOES FOUNDATION REPAIR WITH HELICAL PIERS COST?
Foundation Repair jobs with helical piers vary greatly depending on the size of the structure and the location of the problem areas. Our price per helical pier begins at $1200, with a minimum job price of $2600.
