Strengthening weak, sinking foundations is crucial to restoring the structural integrity of any building. Screw pile systems allow building loads to be transferred onto a beam system, evenly distributing it to prevent sinking and further damage to the structure. Screw piles offer many advantages over other systems because they can be installed quickly and are capable of being used in any type of soil. Can be installed in new foundations to safe guard against movement in years to come.
An alternative to a screw pile system is a bored pier system, which is another beam system capable of handling extreme vertical loads. Bored pier systems are advantageous because they don’t disrupt adjacent soil or structures, meaning installation doesn’t cause damage to your property. They also minimise the amount of excavation work for installation.
