Screw Piles: A Versatile Foundation
Decks and Patios
There’s not much that can beat enjoying one of our beautiful Winnipeg summer nights on a stunning deck. Unless that deck is shifted, slanted, and warped. Traditional deck foundations, such as concrete piles or concrete pads, can be prone to frost-heave in our brutal winters. That’s why Postech Thermal Screw Piles have a unique insulation built right into the pile – it prevents frost and ice from moving or damaging the foundation. Join the hundreds of homeowners in Winnipeg and area who have chosen a Postech Screw Pile for their deck or patio.
Manitoba has stunning cottage-country. However, traditional piles are not always the most reliable foundation for your cottage or cabin. Most cottages and cabins are lighter than a home and aren’t heated in winter. This can cause concrete piles to frost heave, because concrete can struggle to perform under lightly-loaded structures. Postech Screw Piles perform better than concrete piles when placed under cottages or cabins. And, a Postech Screw Pile is easier to install in remote locations. Tell us about your cottage or cabin dreams today, and we’ll help you find the right foundation!
Building an addition onto your home is an affordable way to expand your living area. But, a traditional concrete pile may not be the best foundation for a home addition. Because home additions are relatively light, concrete piles are more prone to heaving and shifting. With Postech Screw Piles unique design and thermal insulation, they perform better than concrete piles under most home additions. And, because you don’t have to pour concrete, screw piles are an easier, no-mess foundation solution. Contact us today to get a free quote on the foundation for your home addition.
Sunrooms and Porches
An enclosed sunroom or covered porch are great places to enjoy our wonderful Manitoba summers. But, did you know that many- sunrooms and porches built on concrete piles could shift and heave after a few winters? Concrete piles work great under heavy structures, but under a (relatively) light structure like a sunroom or patio, concrete piles can struggle to perform. With their revolutionary design and unique insulation, Postech Screw Piles perform better than concrete under lighter structures. That means you’ll enjoy more worry-free summers in your beautiful sunroom or porch. Contact us today for your no-obligation quote!

How a Postech Thermal Screw Pile Works
The pile adapter sits above the ground, and it attaches the screw pile to your structure. Whether you’re attaching to wood, steel, or concrete, we have the right adapter for you!
This is what makes a Postech Screw Pile unlike any other. The specially-formulated insulation creates a barrier that protects your foundation from frost-heave. Unlike traditional piles, a Postech Screw Pile will stand the test of time.
Near the bottom of the screw pile is the helical blade. This is what provides the incredible weight-capacity of a screw pile. This unique helical blade provides up to 70,000lbs of support while resisting frost like no other foundation can.
