Heavy-duty Steel. Mechanically Advanced. Permanent Solutions.
Our round shaft helical piers are made of heavy-duty steel and have a high resistance against bending.
If you need help lifting your home or lighter structures like decks back to their original position, Supportworks helical piers might be the answer you need. These systems are made of steel and include a set of helical blades on the lower section of the pier.
Helical piers are mechanically advanced into the soil using small construction or hand equipment. As they are installed to appropriate depths and capacities, they prevent any future settlement issues.
In many scenarios, these foundation piers will be able to lift your home back to a level position by the completion of the installation.
Our helical pier system is just what you need to stabilize your foundation. Call us for a free helical pier installation quote today! We serve Westminster, Walkersville, Frederick, and many nearby areas in Maryland.
Foundations will experience settlement issues when the soils below the house prove unable to support the weight of the structure. Helical pier systems create a solid supporting base that transfers the weight of your home downwards to strong supporting soils.
First, soil is removed from the area where the helical pier will be installed. Helical pier sections are mechanically “screwed,” or advanced, into the soil.
Once proper depths and capacities are achieved, heavy duty steel foundation brackets are positioned below and against the foundation footing.
The weight of the home is then transferred through the helical piers to deep, competent soils. Lifting the home back towards its original position is attempted. Then, the soil around the foundation is carefully replaced.
The first section of the pier that is advanced into the ground has one or more helical blades (or “bearing plates”) welded to the shaft.
Additional helical pier sections do not have bearing plates and are instead used to extend the pier to the necessary installation depth.
Helical piers can be installed from either the exterior or interior of your home, providing an opportunity to lift your home back to its original position by the end of the installation time.
Helical piers can also be effective at closing cracks caused by settlement, and can also potentially improve the operation of doors and windows.
With knowledge of local soil conditions, helical piers can be an ideal solution because the installing contractor will know exactly how deep to install the piers to reach a stable soil layer that can support your home.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”
“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”
“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
