Helical Piers are installed independent of the structure and do not rely on the weight of the structure for installation. Instead, the weight of your home is transferred to the installed helical bearing plate. We do not POUND into the ground for deep foundation solutions. We use a patened torqueing system that montitors and gently screwes to the bearing soil to reach the load bearing capacity. The attached shaft or screw anchor becomes foundation that will both resist uplift and support the bearing load. The piers are installed beneath your home's foundation footing and then driven into bedrock or stable soil - thus preventing movement or shaking of the sturcture. NO HEAVY equipment is required so access to backyards and other sensitive areas can be reached with confidence.
The A. B. Chance Company requires contractors to be certified by Chance Company Instructors for installation of the Helical Piers in underpinning applications. Their products and our work stand together to offer each homeowner a Limited Lifetime Warranty! Should your foundation need adjustment in the coming years, we'll do it for FREE - Just give us a call. All work is fully documented and even transferrable to the new homeowner.
