As screw pile equipment and technology has improved over the years we have advanced along with it.
It has become more common in Alberta to utilize screw pilings vs concrete.
Compact skid steers and high torque drive heads make building foundations possible and easy in any location.
Often providing an economical advantage over other piling alternatives.

Access through fence gates into your yard is not an issue with our small skid steer.
Equipped with a slow speed high torque drive head, our 36″ wide install machine can drive 2-7/8″ and 3-1/2″ piles in almost any location.
The hydraulic heads that we use are high torque and turn at a slow speed.
These drive heads are specifically design for use with engineered screw pilings.
Often contractors will use drive heads meant for augers.
These drive heads spin too fast and disturb the soil, causing instability with potential for frost jacking.
Additionally auger heads only put out low torque.
This means these heads may not be able to achieve any engineered pile load requirements.
Trust the best, our install crews at The Edmonton Screw Pile Pros use only the right install equipment and drive heads.
This means when our people install your piles, the torque is properly applied and monitored.
Advantages Fast Installation.
With little preparation or cleanup required Immediate load bearing capacity.
Unlike concrete footings, the screw-anchors can be loaded immediately after installation Minimal ground disturbance.
As the posts do not displace the soil during installation.
The ground in which they are put into is not disturbed leaving the soil more stable Load Capacity Verification.
During installation the torque is monitored and recorded.
This indicates the soil condition in which the pilings are installed and indicated how much weight the screw pile can hold Increase Load Capacity.
In the field if the required installation torque is not met, helical plates or piling extensions can be added.
Going deeper with extensions or adding helical plates can increase the torque to meet the engineering specifications No Frost Heaving.
As all metal posts are installed well below the frost line with the load bearing helical plate typically at the deepest point.
Screw piles are resistant to frost heaving No excavating.
Because the posts simply twist into the soil there is no requirement to dig or drill any holes.
This saves time and money Helical piers, also known as helical piles, screw piles and helical anchors, help secure new foundations to the ground.
They can also be used to strengthen and stabilize existing foundations.
The word “helix” means having a spiral shape.
This day and age homeowners have many choices when faced with a structural foundation problem.
The choices include helical piles, push piers, helical tie-back anchors and plate anchors.
Each one of these solutions should only be implemented under the supervision of a qualified engineer and foundation repair contractor.
This article is the forth installment of the Foundation Repair Guidelines for Homeowners series.
The first three articles covered information on structural repair, site analysis, foundation repair proposals, preventing foundation damage, and basement leaks.
Part one of this article discussed the importance of ground water management, not only as essential to a complete foundation repair plan, but as a proactive approach to preventing foundation damage and basement seepage from occurring.
For many people foundation repairs are a necessary evil when they are having settling or heaving problems with their home.
Most are not up to speed on the technical aspects of structurally repairing their homes basement or foundation, so they look through the phone book or go online and look for a repair expert in their area.
With little knowledge or research a foundation repair contractor is chosen based on price or convenience.
Water leaks in your basement or crawl space may be signs of serious structural problems.
Being able to read these wall leaks is an art and should only be preformed by a foundation repair expert or foundation engineer.
Knowledge of what your problem really is and what options that you have will not only save you money but also wasted efforts.
