Helical piles are a foundation solution, a steel shaft with blades attached in a spiral pattern, similar to a wood screw. The pile is attached at the foundation on one end and screwed into the ground on the other. Not only do helical piles stabilize a structure, they also increase load bearing capacities in a retrofit.
There are several benefits to be had when helical piles are used. Some of the benefits homeowners can expect include:
• Quick installation; faster to install than standard concrete foundations.
• Small footprint, which means you can use helical pile foundations in restricted areas.
• Can be installed in any ground, whether it be soft ground, rocky or clay.
• Flexible design; helical piles are designed specifically for your project, taking in consideration the available space and type of soil.
Peter, a past client of Julian Construction, stated, “Julian Construction repaired my foundation and bolted my house down to it. The work was scheduled for just a couple of days after receiving the proposal, completed on time and passed inspection with no problem. The price was great too. Would definitely recommend Julian Construction to anyone.”
