CHANCE Helical Pile Technology Installation
The CHANCE Helical Pulldown Micropile (HPM) is a foundation support system that is a grouted shaft around a standard CHANCE Helical Pile. The lateral load capacity resists the transferring wave action and debris impact from creating a disruption in a home’s stabilization. For each home, the quantity and spacing of the Micropiles are adjusted to meet the unique structural support needs. Visit our Product Solutions page to learn more about Helical Piles and their key attributes that make them ideal for Structural Elevation
While many homeowners have found peace-of-mind from Helical Pile Technology, each plan is different because each home is different. Rest assured that your home repair plan will best suit the structural needs of your home (based on weight and architectural design) as well as the geotechnical properties of the soil beneath it.
Many contractors specialize in very specific methods when it comes to home elevation. Make sure you have a reputable contractor raise your home and a Certified CHANCE Installer to properly install your Micropiles. Only Certified CHANCE Installers can offer the fully transferrable CHANCE Warranty.
If you are an Engineer looking for technical support, please call 855-477-2121 to connect with a CHANCE Application Engineer who can assist with a customized application design.
