What Can I Expect from Helical Piers

So, you’ve determined that helical piers might be the best option for your home’s foundation, but you’re not sure what you can expect from helical piers. In this video we will discuss what you can expect when you install helical piers.

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.
