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
Residential Screw Piles Glenora Edmonton
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.
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.
Ideal for residential decks, cantilevers, fences sheds and retaining walls there are many home project where screw-in foundations can be used.
Commercial builds often require cement slab support, tower anchors, sign support and support for light stands.
Finally industry applications light foundations for solar farms, wind farms, power transmission towers and modular building.
The economical versatility of helical piling foundations means the applications are endless.
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 The use of ground screws in fence construction has been a widely accepted practice for more than a decade, yet the use of ground screws for decks has not been as well embraced.
However, these innovative products offer significant advantages over conventional piles & posts or pad and post systems.
They have evolved considerably in recent years, with a wider array of types and widths.
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.
Anyone will tell you that the most important part of any structure is its foundation.
In order for the building to remain safe, it is vital to have a solid, well-built foundation.
So if your home or business is in need of foundation crack repair or basement drying, don’t hesitate to call a professional service provider to take care of the problem.
When it comes to protecting your home from foundation failure, cost is only one factor.
Spending money on ineffective foundation repair methods or with an unqualified contractor can cost you and your home dearly.
Independent professional engineers are bound to supply you with the information you need to repair your home correctly and even oversee the work being performed.
Foundation repair is the most complicated and the most expensive type of repair your home will ever need.
This is the reason why so many people go to school to get training specifically to become a foundation repair contractor.
