Common Questions About Helical Piles For Cottages & Cabins in New York

Questions about getting a solid helical foundation for your new cottage or cabin? We have answers below! Don't see your question? Get in touch and we'll be happy to help

Why are helical piles ideal for new cottages and cabins?

Helical piles are suited to the challenging terrains often found when building a cottage or cabin. They can be installed in difficult to reach areas, require no excavation, and cause minimal disruption to the site, making them an excellent option for environmentally sensitive areas.

Can I install a helical pile foundation myself?

Installing helical piles is one job that's not quite suited for DIY-ers. It takes specific training, knowledge, equipment, and materials to install a safe and effective helical foundation. You also need the help of an engineer. So, we recommend leaving this job to the pros!

What kinds of soil can you install helical piles in?

Whether your soil is soft, hard, sandy, or contains clay, helical piles can be installed effectively. Their helical design allows them to be driven into the ground until they reach a layer of soil with the appropriate load-bearing capacity for your cottage or cabin.

How long does it take to install a helical pile foundation?

Installation time depends on the size and complexity of the project. However, one of the great advantages of helical piles is their speed of installation. In the majority of cases we'll be able to install your helical foundation in a single day, or even less!

What happens if you find underground lines or pipes?

Before we do any helical pile work our team checks for the locations of underground utilities. However, there are times where a utility may not be marked on drawings. If we discover any unmarked infrastructure, we'll immediately stop to resolve the situation before continuing.
