A Waterproof Foundation For Boat & Swimming Docks In Winnipeg

Spend more time enjoying the water this summer, not worrying about the stability of your foundation


What are "helical piles" and why do they make it 10x easier to build a boat or swim dock?

Water is relentless. Even on a calm lake the inexorable impact of waves and wakes will slowly erode at the foundation of your swim or boat dock. This is what leads to docks that have sunk, tilted, and are no longer safe to stand on. Helical piles deliver firm and enduring support for docks along rivers, lakes, and ponds.

  • Unique helix plate design anchors the pile below soft layers of mud and into firm layers of soil

  • Resistant to movement from the expansion and contraction of water as it freezes/thaws

  • Installation is fast, easy, and can be performed virtually anywhere with our compact machines

Why Helical Piles for Boat & Swim Docks in Manitoba?

High Performance Foundation

Helical piles offer large load capacities in a fast and compact package, while their unique design allows them to resist movement far better than other solutions. On a pound-for-pound basis, helical piles outperform typical foundation solutions for your dock

Eliminates Digging & Dirtwork

Traditional foundations for docks in Manitoba can require a lot of effort, planning, and disturbance to install. Our helical piles smoothly turn into the ground using compact equipment, making zero impact or mess on your property. Spend less time installing your deck, and more time enjoying it

Resists Corrosion, Long Life

The helical piles we install for docks are manufactured from steel and coated with galvanisation to provide superior protection against corrosion from the harsh conditions of a marine environment. Your dock will stand firm for years with no concerns about structural stability

A Foundation in 1-2-3 for Your Boat Or Swim Dock


Helical piles are installed 10' to 15' deep in order to prevent movement from freezing and saturated soil at the bottom of the lake, river, or pond



Brackets with adjustable heads are placed on-top of the helical piles to ensure the connection between your foundation and dock is easy, accurate, and secure


Build the rest of your dock as you normally would on a solid foundation that will never shift.
