Let’s face it, Winnipeg is a tough place to build a home. Our weather results in dramatic movement of the ground above the frost line. That’s why you or someone you know has experienced issues with a sinking or heaving foundation for their home, deck, cottage, etc.
How can you turn the odds in your favour? Heavy duty piles designed for extreme weather – Thermal Piles.
A Thermal Pile is Canada’s most trusted screw pile designed by Postech Metal Foundations in 2007 in response to our increasingly extreme climate. Thermal Piles are insulated to guarantee against movement due to frost heaves.
Why aren’t others insulating piles?
Ray Kroc of McDonald’s was once asked a similar question about McDonald’s versus other fast food chains and his response was fitting; “We can invent faster than they can copy.” Insulating a pile with an injection of polyurethane foam sound simple, however it’s all in the mix. Postech is the only company to date that has been willing to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in the research and development to create a polyurethane blend that will not separate from the piles in extreme cold.
Why should I choose a Thermal Pile?
Thermal Piles are guaranteed and can be installed in nearly all weather and soil conditions (including high water tables). Although the process of installing a Thermal Pile is quick and painless with minimal to no excavation or collateral damage to your landscaping, they last a lifetime! They are also Eco-Friendly and can be easily removed, re-used or recycled.
Can I use Thermal Piles for my project?
The answer is an almost certain YES. We carry mid- and heavy-duty piles in stock but for extreme-duty projects we will custom order piles to meet your needs. Whether or not you have a residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, or recreational building project, we have a foundation solution for you.
