Why Are New Construction Piers A Good Thing For Your New Chicagoland Home?

New Construction Piers

If you are building a new home in the Chicagoland area, it is important to install helical piles under your new construction footings. The soil in Chicagoland and the surrounding area is expansive soil which means that it will shrink when extremely dry and heave when it is wet. If you don’t install helical piers under your new construction, the shifting soil beneath your foundation will cause the foundation to shift and move and eventually cause the foundation to shift and settle causing foundation failure.

Installing helical piers under your new construction will prevent foundation problems from the start. New construction helical piers are recommended by engineers all across the United States. Helical piers are installed below the active soils so that the home is anchored in stable soils and sitting on a solid bedrock. These new construction helical piers can be installed in any weather conditions. These helical piers are installed quickly so there is little disruption to the timing of the new construction project.

Newly constructed home built on poor soil will eventually have foundation movement and settlement. Having a new home build using helical piers will eliminate foundation movement and settlement problems in the future. You will have peace of mind for years to come if you build your new home using helical piers.

New construction helical piers are driven deep into the soil through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. They are installed at intervals between the footing forms then the beam pier cap is installed and ties into the rebar grid work where the loads will be applied immediately. The pouring and curing of the concrete will tie the two together allowing the footing and pier cap to transfer the load to the helical piers.
