Screw Piles: Faster, Easier, No-Mess Foundations
Decks and Patios
There’s two problems with traditional deck and patio foundations. One, they can be time-consuming and messy to install (like concrete). Two, they can be prone to deterioration, frost-heave, and failure (like pads or wooden piles).
Postech Thermal Screw Piles are the easier, faster, more reliable foundation solution. Our install equipment fits through a 32” opening, which means the impact to your customer’s yard is zero. With no concrete to pour, the foundation can be installed and ready to use in less than a morning. That means you do less waiting, and more building.

Manitoba has some of the most beautiful cottage country in Canada – but it comes at a price. Poor soil conditions make it an extreme challenge to excavate and pour a reliable concrete piled foundation. And, concrete equipment is expensive and difficult to transport to remote locations. You end up wasting time that could have been spent finishing projects and getting paid. Postech Thermal Screw Piles are an easy, fast, and durable cottage foundation. They can be installed in locations and soil conditions that concrete can’t and require only minimal equipment. A Postech foundation can be used immediately after install, saving you time and money. Plus, each Postech Screw Pile is given a guaranteed capacity on install. Don’t waste money having concrete piles poured – contact us today and ask about our foundations for cottages.
Home additions are a popular way to add living space – but waiting for concrete piles to be poured eats up valuable time. You have to wait for the excavation, tubes need to be installed, rebar has to be set, and then there’s the mess and curing time. Plus, the equipment to install concrete piles is loud, heavy, and can damage your customer’s yard. There’s a better solution for home addition foundations. A Postech Thermal Screw pile can support up to 70,000lbs, while being easier and faster to install than concrete. Plus, a Postech foundation installs without any mess at all. The only thing we leave behind is a laser-leveled screw pile foundation. Your customer will love having a home addition that won’t shift or heave, and you’ll love a foundation that goes in the ground faster and saves you money. Contact us today and ask about our foundations for home additions.
Sunrooms and Porches
Why does Manitoba (and especially Winnipeg) have so many sunrooms and porches that are uneven? They were built on the wrong foundations. Concrete pads are quickly destroyed by shifting ground, and concrete piles can suffer frost-heave because they don’t have enough weight pushing them down. An easier, more durable foundation for sunrooms and porches are Postech Thermal Screw Piles. Engineer-approved and loved by contractors across Manitoba, we’ve installed screw piles for countless sunrooms and porches. Our equipment fits in a 32” opening and leaves no mess behind. And, our install crews are professional, friendly, and always ready to answer your questions. Why settle for messy concrete piles or unprofessional contractors? Contact us today and ask about our foundations for sunrooms and porches.
Sometimes, an existing foundation needs some extra support. Trying to pour concrete piles under a structure is usually impossible, so what’s a good way to stabilize? Postech Thermal Screw Piles are an excellent choice for stabilizing foundations. Because they install with minimal equipment and create no disturbance to the site, a screw pile can be placed almost anywhere. From houses to outbuildings, we stabilize your customers foundations faster and easier than other methods. Contact us today and ask about our stabilization services.
There’s a myth that screw piles can only be used under lightly-loaded structures. Truth is, screw piles have a capacity of up to 70,000lbs! Screw piles provide an exceptional frost-resistant foundation under new home builds. Time is always running short on a new home build. You don’t want to wait to start building any longer than you have to. Postech Thermal Screw Piles not only install faster and easier than other foundations, but they provide support that’s every bit as strong than concrete piles. And, unlike concrete piles, each Postech screw pile is given a guaranteed capacity on install. Start building sooner on Postech Screw Piles and get more jobs done. Contact us today and ask about our foundations for new homes.
Docks and Boathouses
Docks and boathouses can be tricky structures to support. Lake and riverbed soil is often poor quality, and foundations in water are subjected to some of the toughest conditions in Manitoba. Postech Thermal Screw Piles are manufactured from Canadian-sourced cold-rolled steel and are hot-dip galvanized. This gives them an average life of 300 years in the ground – more than enough to support a dock or boathouse for decades to come. Plus, a Postech screw pile can be installed quickly and easily underwater without the noise and hassle that comes with hammered piles. Contact us today and ask about our foundations for docks and boathouses.
If you’re handling a solar panel install, you need to think about the foundation. Solar panels are subject to winds, rain, heavy snow, and frozen soil. This extreme weather can quickly deteriorate a traditional foundation, such as concrete. And, waiting for concrete foundations to be installed eats up valuable time that could be spent getting the job done. Postech Thermal Screw Piles have been used to support solar panel installations across Manitoba. Thriving in the most vicious weather the province can offer, a Postech foundation installs faster and easier than concrete. Driven below the frost line, our screw pile foundations will support a solar panel installation for decades. Contact us today and ask about our foundations for solar panels.
Retaining Walls and Concrete Slabs
Concrete piles are time and labor intensive to install when it comes to retaining walls or concrete slabs. And, because retaining walls and concrete slabs are relatively light, concrete piles might not be the best solution for a long-lasting foundation. Postech Thermal Screw Piles excel at resisting frost-heave when used under lightly-loaded projects like retaining walls or concrete slabs. Because of their unique design and special internal insulation, even a Manitoba winter can’t shift a Postech screw pile. Plus, a Postech screw pile doesn’t require excavation or curing like concrete does. That means you can use a Postech pile immediately after install – no waiting! And the faster you get building, the more money you can make. Contact us today and ask about our foundations for retaining walls and concrete slabs.
The life of a contractor is about getting jobs done. Doing more jobs means more money, right?
Here’s the thing – if you’re waiting for a concrete foundation, you’re not doing more jobs. You’re waiting to do jobs. Which means you’re not making more money.
Postech Screw Piles not only go in the ground faster and easier than concrete, they’re engineer-approved and ready to use immediately after install. That means no more waiting for concrete to cure.

How a Postech Thermal Screw Pile Works
A wide range of pile adapters are available to fit most common foundation configurations. We can also create custom pile adapters to fit your requirements! A Postech Screw Pile can attach to any structure, making them a versatile foundation.
This is what makes a Postech Screw Pile unlike any other. The specially-formulated insulation creates a barrier that protects your customer’s foundation from frost-heave. Unlike traditional piles, a Postech Screw Pile will stand the test of time.
The helical is what provides the incredible weight-capacity of a screw pile. Because Postech’s piles are engineer-approved, we can guarantee up to 70,000lbs of support while resisting frost like no other foundation can. (Depending on soil conditions)
