Postech Winnipeg proudly serves Manitoba’s rural communities as well as its fantastic cottage country. Yesterday we were out in Steep Rock, Manitoba a quaint cottage community just past Ashern, Manitoba. We completed a total of three projects in the one day.
First Project: We removed and replaced a customer’s steel driven piles under an existing sun room. The existing steel driven piles were only installed 7 to 8 feet deep into clay with a high water table. This meant that every year the steel driven piles moved; because the steel driven piles are not anchored with a helical, they must be firmly anchored in soil well below the active frost zone or the tug-of-war between non-moving soil and moving soil will result in movement. With the helical of the screw piles now anchoring the piles, the active zone will not be able to heave the foundation.
Second Project: Simple deck piles for a front-entry. Each screw pile was installed with precision to ensure the septic holding tank was not damaged. Each of the 10.5′ piles reached refusal at 8.5′ and were trimmed using our gas saw before they were topped-off with adjustable adapters.
Third Project: Screw piles were installed tight against an existing sun room. The customer will then run a new beam which will attach to extended joists using joist hangers. Our installer started the pile back to avoid the roof overhang and then straightened the pile out close to the sunroom once the auger driver was below roof level.
If you have a cottage in Manitoba or in Ontario’s Lake of the Wood then you most likely have a building project. So why not get a great deal on a foundation that won’t move? Call Postech Winnipeg at 204.793.0653 or visit http://www.manitobascrewpiles.ca for more information.
