Why Helical Piles?

Here are the top reasons of using a helical pile foundation in your next project!

Reason number 1 – Helical Piles are the best approach for collapsible soil.

Helical piles are ideal for sites with expansive soils, unknown fill, collapsible soils, soft clays and silts, and most other locations where a deep foundation is being considered.

Using helical piles means that you can avoid all the hassles involved in excavating and backfilling.

Reason number 2 – Helical Pile Foundations can be finished in one day

Because excavation is not necessary for a typical house or deck, our helical piles can be installed in one day.

That’s right! Your contractor can start building your house or deck the next day and you can save time and money!

Reason number 3 – Helical Pile Foundations Are Environmentally Friendly

Helical pile foundations are less invasive if compared with the traditional foundation methods which include lots of excavation and backfilling.

The whole process is fast and clean to keep your project on schedule and the surroundings protected.

Reason number 4 – Helical Pile Installation is Vibration Free

When a deep foundation is required, helical pile foundation is the best approach.

However, what makes this process stand out from other deep foundation methods is that helical piles are vibration free. Helical piles also produce minimal noise during installation.

That means the installation of helical piles will not affect other buildings nearby. For instance, you can install the foundation of your deck without compromising the foundation of your house!

Reason number 5 – Helical Piles Are Cost Efficient

When soil excavation and backfill has to exceed ten feet the best solution is helical piles.

By using helical piles you can save all the costs and time involved with the excavation and backfill process.

Reason number 6 – Helical Piles Have Low Mobilization Costs

Helical piles are installed using an excavator or skid-steer, eliminating the high mobilization costs related to equipment used in other deep foundation methods such as driven piles, drilled shafts and auger-cast piles.

BC Foundations has all the machinery needed to have the job done for an affordable cost.

Reason number 7 – Helical Piles Have Immediate Load Carrying Capability

Our helical piles go as deep as needed to encounter the bearing soil and this gives the piles immediate load carrying capability.

Your contractor doesn’t have to wait to start the next phase. Our engineer will verify that the pile has achieved the desired load capacity and give a thumbs up to your contractor to go ahead and start building!

BC Foundations is strategically based in Kamloops, BC with the ultimate goal to provide the best solution for deep foundations in the BC Interior.
