What Is A Helical Pier?

Helical piers are steel shafts with round helix plates that support structures, countering the risks posed by unstable or weak soils. When drilled into the ground, they support your structure, transferring the load to deeper, stable soils and supporting the structure’s weight. Whether you’re dealing with a sinking foundation or looking to secure a new building project preemptively, Helical Piers from RhinoLift Foundation Repair are one of the easiest-to-install solutions.
