Helical piers from pier tech are one of the most versatile and adaptable foundation tools available. They are ideal for remediation and foundation support. Another common use is in new construction sites where the pier is installed to a pre-set capacity. The footing or building grade beam is cast into place on these helical piers for support in poor soils. Posts support most second storey sunrooms and helical piers can be used to tie them back horizontally or support them vertically. Tiebacks lead to applications. Basement walls get pushed in often by backfill, freezing and hydrostatic pressure and so they should be tied back with these piers. This also holds true for retaining walls which comprise of wood, concrete and block. The sheet piles can be tied back so as to keep the soil from pushing over the sheet pile or from collapsing.
Walls in construction or temporary walls often require tieback support to resist wind loads throughout the construction process. Tiebacks can offer stability during flood times. Posts for docks are also an option where helical piers are used on boardwalks. These support the abutments for bridges. The helical piers can also be used in utility pipe suspension from floating or sinking in poor soil conditions. They are capable of holding the buildings and other things while adjoining work is being completed by Pier Tech.
The equipment required for installation is generally lighter, smaller and less specialized than the equipment used in other forms of deep foundations. The helical piers can be installed vibration free since a torque motor is used to turn them in. If you need a helical pier expert, ensure that you get one with a lot of experience in using the helical piers in all forms of applications. Creativity and expertise are a winning combination for pier tech helical piles pier experts. When installing the piers, the contractor or helical pier expert should continually monitor the torque needed to install each pier. This is used to determine the capacity or load each pier supports.
