Helical Pier Usage

Now this is getting creative. Do you see how one idea leads to more? Posts support many second-story sunrooms. Helicals can support them vertically or tie them back horizontally. Tiebacks lead to other uses. Basement walls often get pushed in by backfill, hydrostatic pressure, freezing, etc. Tie them back with helicals. The same holds true with retaining walls, which include wood as well as concrete and block. Sheet piles, often for industrial uses, can be tied back to keep the soil from collapsing or pushing over the sheet pile.

Temporary walls or walls in construction often need tieback support to resist wind loads during the building process. Consider a retaining wall at the water. Tiebacks can bring true stability during flood times. Speaking of water, how about a boat garage foundation support? Posts for docks are an option also. Helical piers are commonly used on boardwalks. They support the abutments for bridges. Helical piers can be used to suspend utility pipes from sinking or floating in poor soil conditions. They can hold the buildings and other items while adjacent work is completed.

That is not the end of the list, but it goes to show that sometimes a little creativity can expand a good solution like helical piles into a far-reaching fix for all types of problems. If you install piles, get creative! If you’re a contractor needing a helical pier expert, be sure to find one with experience using helical piers in all types of applications. You’ll find that expertise and creativity are a winning combination for a helical pier installer.
