Helical Pier System
Why choose the Helical Pier System?
Evaporation– Hot and dry conditions may cause soil to pull away from the foundation. Settlement due to this foundation moisture imbalance could cause cracks to appear throughout the surface.
Transpiration–Tree roots could dehydrate the soil beneath the home causing soil shrinkage.
Plumbing Leaks–Water from leaky plumbing is often a major contributor to foundation problems, including heaving.
Drainage–Improper drainage will lead to excess moisture build-up, which could erode or consolidate soils. Excessive moisture may cause heaving or expansive soils.
Site Preparation–Cut and fill places where soil is removed from part of the building site and stacked onto another.
