Maximum Corrosion Protection

Between 1910 and 1955, the most comprehensive investigation into the corrosion of buried bare steel and galvanized pipe was conducted by the National Bureau of Standards.

These data were used to determine the probable life expectancy of helical foundations – see Introduction to Corrosion and Galvanizing of Helical Foundations by Perko 2001 in Magnum Helical Foundation Technical Reference Manual.

Twelve samples were buried in Norfolk, VA and in fine sands in Jacksonville, FL where soils are categorized as moderate corrosivity. Samples exhibited an average corrosion rate of 0.64 oz/sf/yr.

Magnum Hot Dip Galvanized Helical Piles in soils with these ratings would provide:

  • Maximum Corrosion Protection
  • 95% probable life expectancy exceeding 140 years
  • Average life expectancy is 350 years

Todd of Southern Coast put in 4 helical piles to support our home and stop the cracking in our home. It worked!! He also gave us a good plumber and stucco guy!! Thank you, Todd. Mark and Sheri Ryan

Absolutely the best prices for installing push piers for a sinking foundation. Professional and quick. Highly recommend them.

Great experience. Work was done on time and done well. Work sights were cleaned and finished professionally. Workers were good guys. I have no complaints at all.

Brian LaBelle, Foundation Repair

They are very competitively priced, the work was done quickly once it was scheduled (had a little bit of back-and-forth with this, sometimes the salesman who worked with me was difficult to get a hold of) was able to get all the paperwork and proof for the insurance company in a timely manner as well. I would use them again.
