The Helical industry has several thousands of applications for foundations. PierTech has been working in the industry and has staff with decades of knowledge. There are a few things to keep in mind when you are beginning to install the PierTech Patented Helical System.
- Everything will not go perfectly
Do not expect the entire project to go exactly as planned. Many times, installers expect the soil to all be the same all throughout the area of install, and very often installers are going deeper than expected and will need to order extra extensions. Therefore, we are often making recommendations to purchase more extensions than needed and if not used on this project, they can be used on a future project. This helps to avoid delays on the project and eliminate the headache.
- Relax, and Breathe
Every install will take some time, and most often other parts of the project are waiting on the completion of foundation work. There is no need to freak out or rush through a project because someone is waiting. This is inevitable, however, with PierTech’s Patented Cross Lock Connection you will save up to 50% in labor costs and the install is about that much faster than the product of our competitors. This will allow for you to be completing very close to on time, and when experienced even earlier than you have scheduled.
- Plan for Anything
Plan for anything, always have extra material on hand, or a plan for if there are any issues. Think about if an excavator or skid steer happens to have issues if you have a back up plan to run your helical install equipment. If a foreman is sick, do you have someone on staff, or know yourself all you need to know to continue to install when they are not there. The great thing about Helicals is they can be installed in all weather conditions, so weather will not be a cause for delay.
