Helical piers can be used to protect a building from settling – or worse, sinkholes – where soil conditions are suspect.
Pier plates cap off piers. Along with rebar, they are embedded in poured concrete footings and slabs.
While sinkholes are unpredictable and difficult to anticipate, the use of L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc.'s helical piers can keep your home’s foundation stable should a sinkhole appear – even in the worst case scenario when it happens under your home!
Whether you are a new home builder or a homeowner about to build your dream home, allow us to help you be proactive about sinkholes.

Pre-construction helical piers are installed prior to pouring footings as specified by the engineer’s installation design. (These are the same piers that have long been used to stabilize and often lift the foundations of existing homes that have settled.)
Rugged steel tube sections are hydraulically driven until they reach the depths of competent load-bearing soil strata or bedrock. The top of the pier is then cut to the footing elevation and a footing bracket or plate cap is welded to it. Rebar is added and the footing is poured, making the pier and bracket assembly integral to the foundation.
Your foundation rests upon these piers, not potentially unstable soils closer to the surface. This precaution ensures that your new home will not settle due to weak soil conditions or sinkhole activity.
