Screw Piles St. Albert Alberta
Screw piles or Helical Piers are the superior foundation choice over most other building alternative in the Edmonton area.
If you’re looking to repair or build a foundation using helical screw piles, then we can help.
All of the screw piles we supply and install are CCMC certified to meet or exceed government regulations for structural foundation.
Engineered projects requiring permits are not a problem.
We can meet any architectural engineering requirement as well as provide any required installation torque reports.
Helical piers ensure long lasting stable foundations for all home construction applications.
The solid integrity of any deck, shed, cement pad or grade beam foundation could be made so with our engineered piling system.
Installing metal screw piles in the place of traditional concrete footings has great benefits.
It is a fast, economical, efficient and most importantly durable base for any residential project to be built upon.
Continuing beyond that of residential jobs, the commercial applications of screw piles are many.
This is mainly because of the the affordability and versatility of helical pile installation.
Yes, screw piles can be used for foundations much like that of residential projects but while meeting the higher requirements of commercial building codes.
The fast and easy installation allows commercial renovators and developers to employ screw pilings for more structures like signs, light standards, roof structures, grade beams, retaining walls and sidewalks.
Also their cost effective and quick installation is perfect for larger commercial jobs where profitability and scheduling are key.
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
