Screw Piles Stabilize Existing Structures

As Manitobans we all know someone (maybe even yourself) who has a home with shifting and/or sinking home additions or porches.  The challenges facing this common problem are: 1) how do you stop the structure from moving; and 2) how do you get underneath the structure.

First, installing a post on a cement block could support the structure but when the freeze and thaw cycle occurs your structure is going to continue moving.  Your best bet against movement is a deep foundation which anchors below the frost line.

The challenge of course is to get a deep foundation system installed below your existing foundation without having to move, remove or lift the structure.

The great news is that there is a solution that works as an effective deep foundation and that can be installed under existing structures – Postech Thermal Piles.

Using our mini-excavator we can dig just under the existing structure and install a screw pile section by section in such a way that it installs under the existing structure’s support beam.  Below is a picture of a recent project where Postech Winnipeg installed a screw pile under a cement beam which was at grade.

Using an adjustable adapter head, this sinking structure was not only stabilized but lifted back up into place.
