Are helical piers expensive?
Consequently, how long do helical piers last?
hundred and twenty years
Also, what is a helical pier? A helical pier is a steel shaft with round helix plates that provides a foundation support for various types of structures. Ram Jack deep-driven steel helical piers are 2-3/8″ or 2-7/8″ diameter sectional pipe piles. They are hydraulically rotated into the ground to bear on rock or a solid soil stratum.
Consequently, are helical piers good?
Because the piers are pushed down to the appropriate level, it is a good choice when the condition of the soil is unknown. Since these piers do not rely on the weight of a heavy structure to push them into the load bearing soil, helical piers are ideal for lighter structures such as decks or stoops.
How much weight can a helical pier hold?
It is the general estimation that piers last over 150 years in normal soil conditions. How much weight can a Helical pile support? Depending on the job our Hercules Pile can hold more than 500 tons or 1,000,000 pounds.
