Helical Deck Support Piers in Appleton & the Greater Green Bay Area
Helical piers make a strong, fast foundation for decks, sunrooms, and other small structures
Helical deck piers provide foundation support for decks, sunrooms, and porches.
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 freezing weather. Hardware for post bases 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 4x4 or 6x6 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.

What are helical deck piers?
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.

Why install helical deck piers?
DIYers and professional builders alike are big 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 in the right spot. With the need for concrete eliminated, there's no construction delay. Instead of waiting for the concrete to dry, the wood posts can be installed atop the piers as soon as they are in place. And with a factory-applied corrosion-resistant coating, helical deck piers are made to last!
