With the type of soil conditions found in and around the City of Champions, building a lasting and stable foundation for you project can be a challenge. Choosing helical piles to support the foundation of your project can be the answer. Engineered pilings are constructed with a hollow steel tube affixed with one or several helixes. These helical plates allow for a more effective bearing load capacity when soil can be problematic. During metal post installation, torque is monitored. If the instal

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.
We truly believe in providing strong, stable screw pile foundations that will stand the test of time.
We are diligent about conforming to architectural standards, building codes.
This passion for providing quality craftsmanship, ensures the safety and longevity of all building projects supported by our piling foundations.
The versatility of engineered helical anchors means they can meet the demands of almost any structural foundation application.
This also means they can be installed in many different types of soils and weather conditions.
Installation of screw-piles is fast and easy and does not disturb the soil.
Therefore, they can be installed nearly everywhere and used in every industry.
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 There can be many reasons why your home’s foundation may need to be strengthened, including: * The foundation has shifted or moved due to earthquakes.
* Soil has eroded beneath or around the foundation, causing cracks, sloping or sinking.
Leveling a residential slab foundation usually means underpinning it with piers.
There are several types of piers.
Here is an overview of foundation repair methods.
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.
The foundation of your home would be considered as the most crucial part of the entire house.
It carries the responsibility of shouldering the entire load weight of your home.
Having a problem with the foundation can cause damage to your home, lessen its value and puts your safety at risk.
As a home ages and settles, it is inevitable that you may see basement foundation.
The first step in the foundation repair of the basement begins with assessing the cause and severity.
You should fix what caused the damage first if possible and then fix the damage that was caused.
After you have fixed the source that caused the damage, you can repair the foundation yourself or hire a contractor that specializes in foundation repair, especially if it is a serious repair.
There are various causes of needing basement foundation repair.
