No Disruption

No excavation is required to install helical piles, meaning no disruption to your land or messy piles of dirt to haul away

Components Of A Helical Pile

    Pile Cap

    The pile cap connects a helical pile to your structure. They come in a variety of designs to suit any project.

What To Know About Helical Piles For New Homes & Additions

  • Good Design Is Critical

    You have to start with a great foundation design to enjoy long-term support. Helical piles are unique to other technologies, which means you absolutely have to work with a foundation contractor who knows how to fully unlock their power. Otherwise you could end up with an over-engineered, needlessly-expensive foundation.

  • Can Transition To Any Foundation Configuration

    No matter what type of foundation configuration your new home or addition will be built on, helical piles can deliver the support you need. Slab-on-grade, pier and beam, full basements, even Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) can all use helical piles to increase their strength, durability, and life span.

    Helical piles don't have to stop at your house! They come in a variety of sizes, designs, and configurations to suit a huge range of projects. Decks, patios, sunrooms, even pools, are an ideal match for the compact performance of a non-disruptive helical foundation. Ask us about bundling multiple projects!

Common Questions About Helical Piles for New Homes & Additions in New York

Questions about helical pile foundations for your new home or home addition project? We have answers below! Don't see your question? Get in touch and we'll be happy to help

Do I need a permit for a helical pile foundation?

Yes! Helical piles, like any foundation for a new home or addition, will require the appropriate permits. We recommend avoiding any contractor who claims differently. Not sure what permits you need? Get in touch with our team and we're happy to help.

Can helical piles be used for homes near the water?

Absolutely, yes. In fact helical piles are a preferred foundation for construction near water. They offer greater load capacities in loose, saturated, and sandy soils commonly found near water. Plus, a helical pile creates no impact on marine environments.

Are helical piles strong enough for a large home?

Helical piles are capable of supporting immense loads - they've even been used in New York City as a foundation for high-rise buildings! Their unique helix plate design gives them the strength to hold the weight of large custom homes, even in poor-quality soils.

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

One of the key benefits of a helical pile foundation is just how quickly it can be installed. Depending on the scale, and complexity, of the project your foundation can be installed and ready to use in a single day. Compare that to concrete, which could take 2 weeks or more!

What happens if you find underground lines or pipes?

Before we do any helical foundation 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.
