Ensuring the Longevity of Your Helical Pile Foundations

At Absolute Foundation LLC, we understand the significance of durable and long-lasting foundation solutions. Our helical pile installations in Northwest Oregon are designed to stand the test of time. However, like any structural element, helical piles require proper maintenance to ensure their longevity and the safety of your property. In this article, we'll guide you through essential maintenance steps to protect your investment and keep your helical pile foundations in top condition.

Routine Inspections:

Regular inspections are the cornerstone of helical pile maintenance. Northwest Oregon's diverse climate, from coastal areas to mountainous regions, can expose foundations to various challenges. Inspect your helical pile foundations annually or after significant weather events to identify any potential issues.

Keep Surrounding Areas Clear:

Ensure that vegetation and debris are kept away from your helical pile foundations. Overgrown plants or accumulated debris can trap moisture against the piles, potentially leading to corrosion. Clearing the area around your helical piles helps maintain a dry and stable environment.

Check for Signs of Corrosion:

Given the region's damp climate, it's essential to check for signs of corrosion regularly. Examine the helix plates and shaft for rust or deterioration. If any corrosion is detected, consult Absolute Foundation LLC for guidance on how to address the issue promptly.

Monitor Foundation Settlement:

Keep an eye out for any signs of foundation settlement. This includes cracks in walls, uneven floors, or doors and windows that no longer operate smoothly. Timely detection and addressing settlement issues can prevent further damage to your helical pile foundations.
