Four Reasons Why Helical Piles are the Best Foundation for Your Home
As with any housing project, the key to having a stable home is a good foundation. Whether you’re renovating or building a brand-new home, GoliathTech’s helical piles are the best of the best when it comes to creating a solid foundation. Here are four reasons why:
1. Unmatched Quality
While some businesses find success through trial and error, such is not the case for GoliathTech. From the very start, we’ve invested in research in order to develop one of the best helical piles on the market. Our helical piles have revolutionized industry standards in torsion capacity as well as resistance to lateral movement, compression and uplift.
Made from galvanized steel, they’re corrosion resistant and built to last. For those worried about damaging their yard, GoliathTech’s helical piles are installed using small, lightweight equipment. It makes all the difference and this means that you’re left with a beautiful yard and a sturdy foundation.
2. Complies With All Uplift Requirements
Many cities impose uplift requirements for all projects including helical piles. It’s important to verify that the technology you’re using meets these standards. Oftentimes, competitor products don’t meet them, but lucky for you, GoliathTech’s helical piles do.
Our piles are installed 12 to 14 inches above ground level and the house installed directly on top of the piles.
3. Better Than Concrete
Helical piles are superior to concrete for many reasons:
They’re installed deep into the ground, meaning that GoliathTech piles offer the best result, especially in places where the ground is soft, unstable, swampy, or prone to flooding.
They’re installed quickly, easily and without heavy equipment. There’s no curing time, no need for excavation, and no delays related to poor weather conditions.
You’ll save thousands of dollars.
Helical piles is an ideal solution for building homes with no basement and uses a technique that involves combining concrete and piles. The process begins using a traditional foundation footing and concrete walls, then helical piles are employed in conjunction with concrete. Concrete-only foundations can crack and cause big problems down the line; by adding helical piles, you can rest assured that your foundation will be durable and resistant to wear and tear such as cracking.
When hiring a GoliathTech certified installer, you’ll know that they’re using the right tools to ensure your helical piles can support the weight being placed on them, making the installation much more precise.
Building on water? Helical piles are the solution for you. Near bodies of water, it’s difficult to dig a concrete foundation due to lack of space. Helical piles are a safer alternative, as they use a smaller footprint than concrete.
PreFab homes are all the rage; they remove the headache of building the whole home on your own. Helical piles are very popular with these projects as there’s no concrete needed at all, simply install the piles and place your home directly on top!
