Helical Piers & Anchors
What are Helical Piers & Anchors?
They are essentially large, steel galvanized screws. Installation involves mechanically screwing helical piers or anchors into the earth, beneath your foundation or structure, until competent, load-bearing strata or bedrock is reached.
The helical pier or anchor is then mounted with a steel bracket to either your foundation footing or structure to achieve permanent stability, even in the most unstable soil conditions.
The Only Permanent Support & Anchoring Solution
It's only permanent solution because the helical piers or anchors are bypassing the problem soils that cause foundations to fail. If you rebuild your foundation on the same soil, the problem will eventually return. When it comes to new homes or structures, you're able to avoid future damage to your foundation or structure from the start.

- New Additions

What Customers Are Saying
Justin was well organized, and the project was thoroughly planned out. Once completed I felt that the foundation work was sound and I believe my house is and will be secure. Thanks very much and tell Justin and the guys, ‘Great Job’. I appreciate it!
The crew showed up on time, were very professional, and did a great job at repairing the damage. I work from my home office and wasn't disturbed at any point during the three day repair. I highly recommend Foundation Technology to anyone in need of foundation repair.
Great overall experience! A day after my inspection I received a bid that reflected exactly what was explained, including costs. I couldn't imagine using another company and can't thank Foundation Technology enough for making such a stressful situation bearable.
Fantastic! My clients were very impressed with Foundation Technology! They did a great job! They were prompt, professional, and we will highly recommend them again and again!!! Thank You!!!
Overall, it was a very smooth experience. They were very transparent throughout the whole process and performed the repairs quickly without being disruptive to my tenants. I would highly recommend Foundation Technology for any foundation issues.
The fact that the inspection was free made things much less stressful. I knew it wouldn't cost me anything to at least get an answer to what was wrong. It turned out I didn't have foundation damage. Although I didn't need the work now, I would definitely hire Foundation Technology if I end up having foundation damage into the future.
We expected a “push” to take action, but instead Jerry showed us how to spot danger signals that should prompt us to make the appropriate decisions. He was never condescending; he patiently answered our barrage of questions, and we certainly intend to use his services when it’s time.
