Every component of your new deck is important to the overall construction, and the footings are no exception. All of our deck projects meet and/or exceed local building codes and whichever pile type is required to support the load of the deck is what we will recommend and use. That being said, all communities or areas have differing soil/ground conditions, and in some areas, helical or screw piles are recommended as they can bore deeper underground, further below unstable earth, or deep frost lines, and eliminate any heaving or movement, as opposed to our standard 48” deep concrete piles.
