Ground movement caused by freezing and thawing is often the main cause of an unsteady balcony. To avoid this situation, consider securing your balcony’s foundation with GoliathTech screw piles. Our certified installers will anchor them deep into the ground, below the frostline, so your balcony is firmly supported and provided with long-lasting stability.
A rapid and damage-free installation
Our quick installation process, carried out with light and compact equipment, allows you to avoid excavation and begin building as soon as the installation of the helical (screw) piles is complete. In addition, we can install them in most types of soils and spaces, even restricted ones that would normally be hard to reach. With the help of our certified installers, GoliathTech’s screw piles will support the foundation of your balcony for many years to come.
Before using screw piles for your balcony installation project, contact one of our certified installers so that they can determine the type, amount, and location of the helical (screw) piles to be installed. Depending on your project, they will be able to estimate the costs.

Frequently asked questions
Frequently asked questions
Why should I use helical (screw) piles for balconies over other foundation systems?
A balcony foundation can be installed in one afternoon and at a fraction of the cost of a below-the-frostline concrete foundation. People sometimes try to save on these foundations because they feel balconies are light structures. But what they don't realize is when a structure, be it a deck, balcony, sunroom, or addition is attached to your home, if it moves with the frost or weak soil, it can pull away from your home, causing significant damage.
