New Construction Piers

Are you thinking of building a new home for your family or a new building for your business? Maybe you have been advised to get the site soil tested. The information from the soil test will give the members of the building team an idea of what they will be dealing with in the construction of your home or building. When meeting with the architect, engineer, and construction contractor, you will probably hear about the use of new construction piers. Helical piers are highly recommended by engineers across North America. Most homes and businesses are originally built on active soils. With the use of helical piers, the house or commercial building can be anchored to more stable soils deeper into the earth. Bay Area Underpinning is the company to call for the experienced team to install your helical piers to your new construction.

Helical piers come in a variety of sizes to help with the load of the building. Helical piers are screwed into the deeper soils below the foundation at predetermined intervals and tie into the concrete of your foundation. With the new construction and installation of the helical piers, there is no wait time for the common concrete footings and concrete piers to cure. This will keep your new construction moving on time and within the budget. These helical piers can be installed in almost any weather condition. A cap is placed over the helical pier so it provides for a flat surface for the footing or slab to be poured. New construction piers will provide a base that will support your new home or commercial building.
