Why put Screw Piles as a foundation?

We often get asked: why do we need to put screw piles as a foundation? In fact, before answering this question, it is important to understand the usefulness of screw piles.

Screw piles

Screw piles have been used as a foundation since the 1830s. They are known for their strength as well as their durability. They can last from 75 years to 300 years depending on the type of soil and the environment they are installed in.

They also allow you to build structures in all types of terrain previously inaccessible while preventing ground movement during freezing and thawing where applicable.

Above all, we must not forget their ecological impact. Screw piles are the ecological solution, because they do not require excavation, which preserves the ecosystem that surrounds them. In addition, they are reusable and movable according to the evolution of your projects.
