Helical Pile Installations are Ideal Solutions for Calgary and the Surrounding Area

Because of the rocky soil conditions in the Calgary area, screw piles are often ideal for professional foundation solutions. Made from metal alloy, helical or screw piles are screwed into the ground vertically, diagonally, or horizontally using a machine with a hydraulic driven head to build deep foundations.

Helical piles can have an additional added load incorporated, which would allow a single- story home to be renovated into a 2-story home. Helical piles can be used as foundations for a variety of structures including transmission towers, pipe line saddles and decks to mention just a few.

Advantages of Helical Pile Installations

With correct installation, helical screw pilings can offer numerous benefits to commercial and residential clients. Some of these advantages include:

  • Rapid installation
  • Ease of installation
  • Versatility (allowable loads for screw piles can go as high as 500 tons)
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Low noise installation process
  • No concrete installation required (saving both time and money)
  • Reduced environmental impact (less soil displacement and reduced carbon foot printing)
  • Decreased project times
  • Ease of access during construction
  • Ease of removal when the foundations are no longer required
  • Reduced risk to the workforce
  • Adaptive to a variety of installation angles
  • Installation process requires little or no dependence on the weather
  • Ease of removal
  • Reusable

Helical piles are especially practical for industries where quick installation is necessary, or construction is being done close to existing buildings. From roads to telecommunications, screw piles are used extensively. Helical piles are also an excellent solution for new buildings or existing structures.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of soil conditions are best for helical pile installations?

Screw piles are excellent for a wide range of soil and load applications. From very soft to stiff clays to loose or dense sands, helical piles work well for a variety of subsurface conditions. Working with an experienced, professional team can help best determine when helical pile installations are applicable. Specific-sized screw piles must be used based on the maximum grain size and generally, are not suited for gravel, cobble, and rock surfaces.

Are helical screws able to carry immediate load?

Helical piles are unique from most other types of foundation repairs and can bear weight immediately after installation. Without waiting for concrete or other materials to harden, helical screw installations are ideal for projects in need of quick turnaround times.

Do you warranty your work?

Yes, our foundation repairs are completely warrantied. All our helical pile installations come with a 10-year warranty.

My front porch is sinking, can it be lifted?

Yes. Abalon Repair Foundation can install helical piles with a lifting bracket to level your porch.

I own a three-story walk up apartment building, the outside walls are sinking, what’s wrong?

The building is settling probably due to soil conditions, fill or frost. Abalon can properly diagnose your problem. Our expert team has fixed these sorts of issues on many occasions rather easily.
