Whatever they are made of, gazebos are sensitive to high winds and can easily be lifted off the ground. To be able to withstand such weather, your gazebo must be firmly anchored to the ground. To ensure your gazebo’s sturdiness and durability, screw piles are the best solution currently available.
Stability and solidity
In order to ensure your foundation’s durability, our installer will use specialized equipment to drive the screw piles past the ground’s frost line. They will be firmly anchored into the ground by a helix plate at the bottom of the piles. Moreover, if you wish to leave your gazebo on-site during the winter months, the piles have the advantage of being impervious to ground movements due to frost and thaw cycles. Your gazebo will remain straight and level, and will not sink into the ground.
In-house engineers are available to estimate your project’s costs if needed. The number, size and placement of the piles will depend on the type of structure and its weight. Screw piles can be installed in any soil type and whatever the environmental constraints. The type of soil will determine the type of screw pile to be used for your project.
Choosing a screw pile foundation means that you won’t have to dig up holes or to pour concrete on your property. Installation will be quick and clean. Moreover, our Kubota mini-tractor is equipped with lawn tires that will not damage your property. Our equipment is also capable of circulating and functioning in very tight spots, which means that our professionals can easily install piles close to existing structures.
Moving and reusing screw piles
Screw piles can be removed if needed. Thanks to our specialized equipment, your installer can remove the piles from the ground and move them elsewhere. Therefore, if you ever want to change your gazebo’s location, the screw piles can be extracted and installed elsewhere on your property.
