Building and House Footings Using Helical / Screw Piles
Guaranteed solidity and stability
Building or renovating a home or building is a large-scale project that requires a significant amount of time, money, and energy. That’s why it’s essential to build your home or building on a solid foundation! Of course, you could opt for a traditional concrete foundation, but a home or building foundation built using helical (screw) piles will prove to be much faster, more economical, durable, and above all, much more stable in the long run.
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 all 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 home or building for many years to come.
Before installing your home or building using screw piles, 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 houses or buildings over other foundation systems?
There are 2 types of foundations that can be used for homes: spread footing/foundation wall (or frost wall) and concrete slab-on-grade. helical (screw) piles can be used to support both the concrete and the home, above grade. Using our calibrated installation equipment, we install the piles at a minimum depth to a specific torque. With the information obtained from the installation equipment, we know the exact compression and tension capacity of each pile. We then encase the pile head with the concrete footing or concrete slab to ensure the concrete will not settle or crack over time, which is often the case when piles are not used.
What are the advantages of using helical (screw) piles vs concrete for houses or buildings?
Guaranteed pile capacity calculated
No risk for cracking as foundation settles over time, whereas concrete will always have the risk of settling and cracking
Removable and reusable system
No delays between the end of the installation and the beginning of work
Perfectly level structure

It’s likely that during the installation, some technical details will need to be adjusted, such as the length of the piles or the size of the helices. Our experts know how to react quickly in order to ensure the absolute stability of your foundation.
Everything is ready for construction
There’s no delay or clean-up required between the end of installation and the start of construction. As soon as the last screw pile is anchored into the ground, you can start building your project.
