Helical / Screw Piles for an Underpinning Foundation Project
Start on solid ground
Did you know that reinforcing the foundation of a structure, like that of a home, can save you thousands of dollars, compared to replacing the entire foundation? Strengthening becomes necessary when the underpinning foundation can no longer support the load of the structure resting on it. With our superior anchoring system, it is possible to stabilize or raise a sagging or unstable structure. To do this, GoliathTech helical (screw) piles are driven deep underneath the existing structure until they reach dense, compact, and firm soil. This way, the underpinning foundation will be solidified, strengthening the building structure for the future.
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 system of your home for many years to come.
Before using screw piles for your underpinning 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 underpinning over other foundation systems?
Helical (screw) piles with underpinning brackets are a cost effective way to repair your failing concrete foundation. Rather than using more concrete to repair settling concrete foundation, helical (screw) piles can be installed under the foundation to lift and support the concrete foundation from further settling or cracking.
What are the advantages of using helical (screw) piles vs concrete for underpinning?
Piles can be used to reinforce the structure without having to tear down and build a new structure
Installed under the foundation to support the concrete foundation and stop further cracking or settling

The steps of a screw pile foundation project
Planning your project
First and foremost, it is essential to determine the nature of your project, as well as the various needs associated with it. Evaluate the time, budget, and space available to you so that you can pass this information on to one of our certified installers, when the time comes.
Consultation and estimate
Our certified installers are waiting for your call! With the help of precise calculations and an exhaustive analysis of the type of soil and the load to be supported, they will be able to provide you with an estimate of the cost of the product and will design a solution tailored to your needs.
The big day has finally arrived. The helical (screw) piles will be screwed in as deeply as possible. 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.
In order to provide you with a helical (screw) pile foundation solution that’s designed to meet your needs and specific project, our network of certified installers and consultants make the most of their vast expertise in the field. Recognized for their know-how, they conform screw piles to meet the unique nature of your property and project, rather than offering you a solution... cast in concrete!
