The Best Foundation Method to Speed Up the Construction

TerraceHave you considered using helical pile in building the foundation for your project? Long before the popularity of screw piles, building a structure would take quite a while. The materials and the methods used for construction will always play an important role in completing the project. You may have noticed in some old structures or buildings that they easily get damaged and repairs are done quite often. Remember, the key to a good structure will always boil down to a good foundation. Most buildings use concrete piles and even wood piles if the budget does not permit. These are the foundation piles that carry quite a few drawbacks. Other than it would take time to install these piles since you need to prepare the construction site and analyze on the ground whether or not it is safe to excavate and create holes to insert the piles. Once it is done, concrete piles still require waiting time before you can use it. Concrete needs to be dry before building the foundation. On the other hand, these foundation building methods would require too much effort and most of all, the biggest concern in every construction – money.

 So, what is the best solution?

Screw Piles

Step 2
Once an engineer have completely analyzed the ground, it is time to clear out the site and excavate through the ground preparing the holes where the piles will be installed and inserted.

Step 3
Considering the holes on the ground are ready, in installing the piles, concrete will be poured. At this point, you will be able to notice that you have spent hundreds and thousands of dollars for hiring workers and renting or perhaps buying certain equipment to complete the construction.

Step 4
Wait. Wait and more waiting period until the concrete dries. It may take a while before you can use the pile and continue building the foundation.

Meanwhile, installing the steel piles enables you to skip on a few steps.

Step 1
Prepare the piles and the construction site. This includes the measurement and the plan.

Step 2
You can immediately insert the screw pile to the ground until it reaches at a certain depth.

Step 3
Once it is ready and sturdy, you can go ahead and build the foundation.

Conclusion
You will notice how using helical piles cuts on the time in building the foundation and completing the construction.
