Helical Deck Support Piers
Helical piers make a strong, fast foundation for decks, sunrooms and other small structures
The standard practice of installing poured concrete piers for decks, porches, sunrooms and similar structures has caused plenty of frustration over the years.
Holes can’t be dug and piers can’t be poured in rainy or zing weather. Post base hardware must be carefully placed in the top of the pier while the concrete is still wet. Construction is delayed while the concrete hardens.
Worst of all, when a concrete pier is mistakenly installed off the layout grid, you’ve wasted a significant amount of time and money.
Steel helical deck piers eliminate all the frustrations mentioned above. Designed to accept standard steel support brackets for 4×4 or 6×6 posts, these specialized piers do away with weather delays because they can be installed regardless of temperature and precipitation conditions. No excavation is required, and no concrete either.

Bad Weather and Poor Soil Conditions Won’t Hamper Pier Installation
Common applications of this time-saving structural system include the following:
- Storage buildings
- Mobile homes
- Elevated walkways
Helical deck piers take advantage of proven structural engineering technology used for years to repair damaged foundations and overcome problems caused by weak and unstable soil conditions.
The helical-shaped plates on the shank of a helical pier are engineered so that the pier can be turned into the ground like a giant screw. Rotational resistance is measured as the pier is installed to ensure that the pier is solidly anchored in the soil.
Weak or unstable soil close to the surface isn’t a problem because piers can be driven to reach strong, stable soil at greater depths. A skid steer or other compact hydraulic machinery can handle the installation.
No Excavation, No Mess and No Waiting
Builders who learn about helical deck piers soon become fans of this construction method. No digging is required, and if a pier is installed in the wrong location, it can simply be “unscrewed” and reinstalled. The need for concrete is eliminated, and there’s no construction delay. Wood posts can be installed atop piers as soon as the piers are in place. Thanks to a factory-applied corrosion-resistant coating, these piers are under warranty to last for the life of the structure they’re supporting.

To be stable, strong and level, the floor above a crawl space requires solid mid-span support that’s usually provided by a post-and-beam assembly. But beams are often undersized, and many contractors use wooden posts that can rot, shift and settle. When this happens, floor joists sag and other structural problems occur. The SmartJack® system is a foundation repair product that provides a permanent solution to these problems.
