Micropiles are very similar to helical piers except they also utilize a concrete grout mixture for additional support depending on the soil. Micropiles are ideal for foundation repair applications such as support for footers, porches, steps, stairs, chimneys, and more. They are used in many residential foundation repair and miscellaneous commercial and industrial foundation repair applications from adding support for a leaning house to supporting a large building to enable excavation and perform work below. They are one of the most widely used foundation repair applications available.
There are many reasons for which micropiles have been considered the optimal solution for a foundation repair project such as:
- Optional lifting of the foundation
- Ease of installation
- Minor or no vibration caused during installation
- Load of structure can immediately be transferred after installation
- Load testing is easily verified
- They install well below active soils
- Soil boring logs are not necessary
- Installation torque correlates to the pier capacity
- Can be installed to support footers and slabs
Micropiles have been utilized for over 150 years for such applications such as:
- Foundation slabs
- Deck columns
- Equipment support
- Power line structures
- Elevated walkways
- Retaining walls
