Foundation Helical Pier

Helical Pier InstallationFoundation helical piers, also known as helical piles or screw piles, are an innovative and effective solution for stabilizing and supporting foundations. These piers are particularly useful in areas with challenging soil conditions where traditional foundation solutions may struggle. Basically, ECP foundation helical piers are ideal for applications where there is a need to resist tension or compressive force or both.

Benefits of Foundation Helical Piers


Helical piers can be used in a wide range of soil conditions and are suitable for both new constructions and foundation repairs. their versatility makes them a popular choice for various types of projects, including residential homes and commercial buildings. 

Quick Installation

One of the primary advantages of helical piers is their quick and straightforward installation process. Unlike traditional concrete foundations that require curing time, helical piers can be installed rapidly with minimal disruptions to the site. This efficiency can save both time and money on construction projects.  

Minimal site Disturbance 

The installation of helical piers causes minimal disturbance to the surrounding area. This is particularly beneficial in urban environments or areas with existing landscaping that needs to be preserved. The process generates less noise and vibration compared to other foundation solutions, making it a more neighborhood-friendly option. 

Long-Term Stability

Helical piers provide long-term stability and durability. Made from galvanized or epoxy-coated steel, they are resistant to corrosion and can withstand harsh environmental conditions. This ensure the foundation remains strong and reliable for many years, reducing the need for future repairs. 

Helical Pier Installation

ECP resistance slab piers are designed and engineered especially for structured slab support. These steel slab brackets are simply installed on top of ECP helical anchors or with an end-bearing pier to stabilize or lift a concrete slab due to failing soil conditions that are too weak to support the slab. The resistance slab piers can be mechanically or hydraulically used to lift settling slabs in much the same way that ECP underpinning brackets are used to support footing foundations.

The resistance slab piers are installed using a grid pattern. Installation is accomplished inside the structure so these piers install quickly due to their minimal set-up time making the process a more cost-effective and time-efficient solution.
