HOW IT WORKS…
Our ground screw is at the height of modern foundation construction. Resembling a large screw with only the tip being tapered and threaded, these 6 to 8-foot screws with a 3-inch diameter are driven into the ground. As the screw is driven into the ground, the soil is displaced tightly compacting around the screw and adding to the overall stability and load-bearing capacity. Once the threads are driven beyond the frost line, the physics and engineering of the screw pile relies on torque values determined by soil densities and hence enabling us to calculate load bearing capacities and the required number of screws for each project. Often exceeding the load-bearing capacities of traditional concrete piles, our engineered ground screws can be used for almost any building structure that does not require a basement. National Ground Screw and Foundation has the equipment to handle all jobs. Handheld machinery enables us to get into tight places including inside homes and basements with unique solutions for installing our screws. These handheld machines are most often used for residential builds such as additions, decks, and jack-posts. The advantages are a swift install that requires no excavation, clean up or destruction to landscapes and hence a safe and secure product with an installation process that is environmentally friendly.
