Michigan Helical Piers Help Restore Foundation Integrity

Michigan Helical InstallationsHelical piering is often used in areas with a lot of water. Exposure to water can wear away at concrete supports, putting buildings at risk. With over 36,000 miles of rivers and streams, 11,000 islands and lakes, and borders touching four of the five Great Lakes, Michigan construction often requires helical pier installation. These deep foundation systems keep buildings secure, even if exposed to water. MUDTeCH provides helical pile installation across the Midwest, including Michigan.

Michigan helical anchors help support foundations which are sinking, shifting or have been weakened over time by harsh conditions. Like most of the Midwest, Michigan soil tends to shift and can leave traditional foundations unstable. From Detroit to Grand Rapids, helical anchors provide lateral and tie down support for earthen retention walls, erosion walls, seawalls and marine bulkheads. Helical piers also offer the most durable underwater foundation support for structures built on or near water.

Michigan Helical Pier Installation

With so much water around, it’s no surprise how often our deep foundation systems are needed in Michigan. Helical anchors can be used in the construction of piers which were not built before a lake or pond was filled in, or in the case of a new owner who would like to add a dock off their new property to a water source. Our contractors have seen many concrete foundations worn away by water, even if it does not appear to be flowing. Still water is always moving, leading to erosion even in small bodies of water. A deck or dock can collapse if the support gives way, so it is better to contact MUDTeCH right away if you notice issues with your current support system.

We will replace your concrete foundation with steel piles which will not erode from water exposure. Our deep foundation systems can also be used when bridges or existing piers need additional foundational support. Since water can be unpredictable, soil conditions around support structures can quickly change. A once dry concrete pile can quickly get soaked and start to sink. We drill down into bedrock or other loadbearing soil, giving your construction the additional support it needs to remain strong and level.

Commercial Foundation Support for Detroit

Helical Pier Installation in MichiganSince Michigan has shifting soil, a deep foundation system is necessary to protect buildings during and after construction. We use steel helical piles instead of concrete to provide long-lasting support. Unlike concrete, steel is better able to withstand subtle shifts in foundation soil over time and does not erode from water. Our drills can install piles deeper than concrete, making MUDTeCH the best for reliable deep foundation systems.

Our steel helical piles can be installed in less time than concrete. We drill each pier directly into the ground. There’s no need to drill a hole first, fill it with concrete, and then wait for it to set. We can even drill in colder temperatures to keep your construction project on time.
