Helical Piers for Foundation Stability in Kansas City

Helical piers, also called helical piles, are supports that are screwed into the ground to add stability to a home’s foundation. Helical piers can be used for new construction homes and to repair existing structures. If you are looking for helical piers for your foundation’s repair or for additional support for a new home’s foundation, you can get them installed through Foundation 1. We have foundation contractors who can examine your home and give you an estimate on helical pier installation.

Helical Pile Contractors You Can Trust

Foundation 1 is an approved installer of the PierTech™ line of helical piers. This patented product line includes a number of features which provide for high quality, but also more rapid installation, driving down costs compared to other helical pier lines on the market.

Helical piering gives Foundation 1 an opportunity to drive piers without having to use the weight of the structure they will support (as is the case with push piers.) Helical piers are ideal for new home construction and pre-piering homes. Given a large percentage of homes in Kansas City ultimately have foundation issues, piering new homes is a significant “value add” to the homeowner. If you are worried about soil conditions around your Kansas City home, consider the installation of the helical pile system.

Other Reasons to Install Helical Piers at Your Kansas City Home

Additionally, helical piers are an ideal alternative for supporting decks and other lighter structures, which may require stabilization and protection from settling / sinking, but are not heavy enough to drive push piers.

There are also a number of industrial / commercial applications for helical piers, including:

Warehousing

Equipment pads

Tower stabilization

Light pole

Solar equipment foundations

Multi-story construction.

How to Know if Your Foundation Needs Repairs

If your foundation has been damaged due to settling, unstable soil, or excess water, there will be noticeable signs of damage:

Windows and doors are sticking or are difficult to open
Cracks are visible in your basement/foundation walls
Tilting/leaning chimneys
Uneven floors
Plaster walls are cracking
Nails are popping out of ceilings or walls
Large gaps are appearing in your windows or door frames

If you have noticed any of the above issues at your home, you may have foundation problems that require helical anchors to correct. To avoid foundation failure, reach out to Foundation 1 for an assessment of your home’s foundation.

Their price for 10 piers was on par with other bids we received. The work was finished within the time frame we were given and we are very pleased with their work.– Rita, Kansas City

The best experience I’ve had with a contractor. As this was a large project, I researched many pier options, different companies, and installation methods. – Nicolas, Leawood
