Foundation Helical Pier System

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.

Helical piers have a great deal of versatility for stabilizing and restoring foundations and masonry elements.

Advantages Of Supportworks 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
  • 25-Year Manufacturer's Warranty

Slab Pier System

Slab piers are designed specifically to stabilize and (in some cases) raise slabs that have settled. This type of pier is driven into the soil in the settlement area, deep enough to connect the slab to stable, load-bearing soil or bedrock.

A specially designed bracket connects the top of the pier to the underside of the slab, to stabilize and/or raise the slab back to its original position.

Advantages Of Supportworks Slab Piers:

  • Can extend to great depths to contact stable soil or bedrock
  • Non-destructive repair requiring minimal excavation
  • Completely hidden after installation holes are filled
  • Can help lift a settled slab in addition to stabilizing it, in some cases
