Our foundation piers

  • Helical Piers

    Helical Piers in Ontario

    A helical pier owes its name to the helical plates welded to the pier shaft. These plates help to pull the pier into the soil during installation and provide anchoring strength as the weight of the foundation or structural element is transferred to the pier. Additional sections can be added to the pier until it reaches the necessary depth. Helical piers have a great deal of versatility for stabilizing and restoring foundations and masonry elements.

    Advantages of helical piers:

    • Year-round installation
    • Fast, effective installation
    • Stabilize light structures like decks or concrete stairs
    • Can help lift settled foundations back to original level
  • Push Piers

    Push Piers in Ontario

    These rugged steel push piers feature a patent-pending external sleeve that strengthens the pier at the critical tension point below the bracket. Push piers are installed next to the footings and attached with a heavy duty steel bracket. Soil is backfilled around the piers once stabilization and lifting is complete to finish the installation. This is the best foundation repair option available when soil conditions are unknown, providing a permanent solution for your settlement issues.

    Advantages of push piers:

    • Best opportunity to lift home to original position
    • Minimal disturbance during installation
    • Fast, effective installation
    • Reaches greater depth than any other option
