It doesn't matter if it's delicate landscaping or a sensitive jobsite, if construction equipment tears it up all it creates is a problem for you to fix.
That's why we take the time to lay heavy-duty ground mats anywhere our equipment goes. They protect your landscape from damage and guarantee that when we leave, all that's left is a durable foundation. Not a mess for you to deal with.

Frequently Asked Questions About Helical Pile Installation

  • How do I get a helical pile foundation installed in Winnipeg?

    Your first step should be to get in touch with a professional helical pile installation company and tell them about your project. (Might we recommend Glawson Piling?) You'll want to provide as much information as possible so we can determine which solution is right for you.
    Armed with that information, our team will devise an efficient plan and create an honest price estimate. After that, all that's left to do is schedule a day for us to visit!

  • Are helical piles approved by engineers?

    Helical piles are absolutely approved by engineers, both here in Manitoba and across the world. They have a place in international building codes and are an accepted foundation solution for residential, commercial, and industrial construction.

  • Can I install a helical pile by myself?

    Unfortunately you cannot install a helical pile on your own. It's a technical process that demands skill and experience to do properly. An improperly-installed helical pile will be much more likely to fail or be inaccurate. Plus, you need equipment like a special drive to rotate the pile into the ground.
    The best thing to do is work with an experienced and trustworthy contractor to ensure your foundation is installed safely and correctly.

  • Don't they sell "helical piles" at home improvement stores?

    You may have seen something that looks roughly similar to a helical pile at a local home improvement store. These are not a true helical pile, they're considered a ground anchor. While the manufacturers may claim they can hold a significant amount of weight, in reality it's impossible to install them deep enough to avoid frost damage.
    Even if the foundation holds in the short-term, odds are excellent that problems will arise sooner rather than later. When it comes to the support behind your project, your best bet is to trust a professionally-installed helical pile.
