Alabama Foundation Solutions: How Helical Piers Work
Helical piers work by driving into the stable soil to support the home. They are installed by drilling into the ground, far enough to reach the stable soil beneath the shallow, shifting layers of soil. then, the weight of the home is transferred onto the piers and they are used to lift and stabilize the foundation. The ECP helical piers used by Nichols / Grout Tech come in shaft lengths from 10″ to 120″, and various plate thicknesses. They also have a high load bearing capacity to support the weight of your home and keep it stabilized.
