Cantsink Saves Foundations From Sinking and Hold Steady Through Hurricanes Ian and Nicole

Cantsink helical piles are an effective, sturdy way to protect foundations from sinking during extreme weather and hurricanes. When installed properly, they provide a steady foundation that can withstand the increased moisture and weight of the rain-soaked ground. 

Here’s a closer look at how Cantsink helical piles work and why they’re such an important part of protecting your foundation:

How Cantsink Helical Piles Work 

Cantsink helical piles are long, metal rods that are screwed into the ground. They’re installed at a depth that’s determined by the soil conditions and the expected load on the foundation. The number of needed depends on the size and weight of the structure being supported, which can be easily established by one of our foundation specialists during a free evaluation.

Once in place, they’re connected to brackets that are attached to the foundation. These brackets distribute the load evenly across the piles and help to keep the foundation level. As the ground around the foundation settles, the helical piles rotate slightly, which allows them to bear more weight without sinking further into the ground.

Why Cantsink Helical Piles Are The Best Option For Foundation Settlement

One of the biggest benefits of Cantsink patented products that they’re much more sturdy traditional concrete foundations.

Every other house was caved in but the house with Cantsink Helical Piles stood tall holding up a pool on one house and a porch on the other! The pictures tell the story correcting as you can see the naked piles once drilled deep in the earth now remain but a skeleton, however strong as Cantsink engineered them to be.

The damaging effects of heavy rainfall and downed trees on home foundations and other structures are not immediately apparent. Cantsink helical piers keep your home stable in the storm surge.

With so many heavy storms impacting Metro Atlanta in 2022, homeowners may discover conditions under their houses that have compromised foundation stability. Sudden downpours create unanticipated runoff that inundate soil and cause unexpected pressure variations. Water patterns unknown to builders during construction wash away protective layers of soil around or under the house, which allows damaging water intrusion.

Hurricanes Irma and Nate doused the region in recent weeks with abnormal quantities of rain: downing trees, flooding streets and loading groundwater to full capacity. These conditions may be changing ground conditions under your house in ways you don’t immediately notice.

As water in the soil shifts its positioning or hidden tree roots deteriorate after the tree falls, changes in pressure could cause home foundations to sink, undermining structural integrity.
