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 a screw pile.

Screw piles

Screw piles have been used as a foundation since the 1830s. They are known for their strength as well as their durability. Their lifetime guarantee can range from 75 years to 300 years depending on the type of soil.

In addition, they allow you to build structures on all types of terrain while preventing movement of the piles during periods of freezing and thawing.

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