Between helical (screw) piles and concrete, the choice is simple.

In the past, it was the only option available on the market. But now, concrete’s time has finally come to an end. Compared to GoliathTech's helical (screw) piles, concrete is no match when it comes to strengthening, restoring, or building a foundation. 

There are many reasons to choose screw piles vs. concrete for all of your projects. Here are just a few:









Screw piles vs. concrete: easy installation

Say goodbye to heavy machinery, messy excavation, and endless weeks of work! In addition to leaving a minimal impact to the landscape, our certified installers also offer superior expertise. Our all-terrain equipment, both light and compact, allows us to anchor each pile with precision.

The pouring of concrete, on the other hand, is done in several steps. It requires heavy equipment and a lot of manpower, from excavation to the curing of concrete. 

Finally, screw piles have a huge advantage over concrete: they allow you to reach the ground level that offers the best stability, which is not the case with concrete foundations.

Screw piles vs. concrete: long-term savings

It's true that a helical (screw) pile is more expensive than a concrete mix from the local hardware store. However, when you consider all the factors surrounding installation, it quickly becomes apparent that GoliathTech helical (screw) piles, with their 30-year warranty, are a much more economical option. In addition to leaving a minimal impact to the landscape, they provide substantial savings in time and money over the course of the project.

For example, only one person and one day are needed to install helical (screw) piles. On the other hand, pouring concrete formwork requires a lot more manpower, machinery, and work hours. Not to mention the fact that over time, concrete foundations are less resistant to freeze/thaw movements, and after only a few years, can crack, deteriorate, or collapse. Another important detail is that the extraction of a concrete foundation is much more time consuming and costly than that of a screw pile. 

In short, installing a screw pile foundation system costs less than a concrete foundation.

Screw piles vs. concrete: durability that stands the test of time

It is well known that concrete is less resistant to the harsh weather and sudden thermal changes that occur in some of the colder climates of the world. GoliathTech helical (screw) piles undergo a state-of-the-art galvanization process and are doubly protected against freezing and thawing, making them corrosion-resistant and able to withstand the years without bending. 

In addition, GoliathTech screw pile heads are equipped with a nut fastening system. This innovative anchoring solution allows the structure to be attached directly to the helical piles, thus preventing lateral and vertical movement* of the structure. No other poured concrete foundation offers this level of strength and durability.
